He also explained that 10 percent of the shares now controlled by Papua, 3 percent will be managed by the provincial government, while the remaining 7 percent is managed by Mimika Regency, 3 percent of which will be divided into 27 districts.

Another 3 percent, he said, will be handed over to the community owners of ulayat rights, while the remaining 1 percent becomes a fixed share.
