Description:
Mount Fubilan was a mountain in Papua New Guinea. It is the site of the Ok Tedi Mine which has reduced the mountain to a pit in the ground.

The copper mining potential of Mount Fubilan was discovered by Kennecott Copper Corporation in 1968. After feasibility studies for an open pit operation by a consortium of companies led by the Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited, mining started in 1984 and the first copper processing facilities were commissioned in 1987. By 31 December 2004, 8,896,577 tonnes of copper concentrate (containing 2,853,265 tonnes of copper metal and 7,035,477 ounces of gold metal) had been mined. In addition, between 1985 and 1990, 47.642 tonnes (1,680,553 ounces) of gold bullion was produced.
