As the Grasberg open pit mining era ends in 2020, Freeport Indonesia has proven its commitment to managing post-mining land, namely by conducting reclamation and revegetation.In this process, plants are planted in the form of grass and shrubs with root and lime planting media so that plants can grow well. This effort is also part of Freeport Indonesia's commitment to support environmental sustainability which has an impact on the preservation of biodiversity in the operational area.

Freeport Indonesia applies good mining practices in its operations, one of which focuses on long-term tailings management. This tailings deposition area is located at the mouth of the Ajkwa River called ModADA (Modified Ajkwa Deposition Area). This comprehensive tailings management system has also received approval from the Indonesian government based on years of technical studies and reviews.This area then forms a new plain which develops into an area of ​​reclamation and natural succession. In this area, we have planted mangrove trees sustainably since 2004, with the aim of accelerating the colonization of mangroves that grow naturally. One of these new plains with extensive mangrove forests is called Pulau Waii. The mangrove forest area in this area is also used by flora and fauna as a new habitat.
