    Freeport to cede control of Indonesian copper mine in $3.9 billion deal

    JAKARTA/TORONTO (Reuters) - Freeport-McMoRan Inc said on Thursday it will sell a majority stake in the world's second-biggest copper mine to the Indonesian government, seemingly ending a long-running dispute via a series of complex deals worth $3.85 billion (£2.91 billion). The agreement, which could still collapse, will see Freeport give up majority control but remain the operator of the Grasberg mine, located in the country's eastern province of Papua, as Jakarta seeks to gain greater control over its mineral wealth. Freeport accepted far less than it could have gotten for its majority Grasberg stake, highlighting the company's desire to end an acrimonious chapter that had weighed on its shares for more than six years.
