The Frieda River Project is a large open cast mine and associated infrastructure in the Western Province of Papua New Guinea. The deposit is a large copper-gold porphyry deposit.[1] The project includes a hydroelectric scheme to provide electricity.[2] and service by the Frieda River Airport. In 2010, the mine had estimated reserves of 14.3 million oz of gold.[3]

The project was originally majority owned by Xstrata,[4] it is now owned by PanAust Ltd after it was bought from Glencore/Xstrata in 2013[5]

Feasibility studies were underway in 2010[6] and completed on 19 May 2016, and were reportedly on track at that time for submission to the Government of Papua New Guinea.
