OWN, with the support of Ok Tedi Mining, recently unveiled a ‘dozer that was painted blue as a bold statement to shine a spotlight and start the conversation around cancers affecting men.
 
Ok Tedi Mining says the dozer was unveiled at the Mt Fubilan mine earlier in November. Also on display was a haul truck which was painted pink last year to celebrate Pinktober, a breast cancer awareness campaign.
 
OWN chair Tracey Hart reinforced the message of early detection raising cancer awareness in the workforce and in Papua New Guinea.
 
Mining GM Derrick Kelly said Ok Tedi, with OWN support, was proud to be able to raise cancer awareness annually among its workforce.
 
Ok Tedi has also launched its ‘Shave for Cure' campaign in an effort to raise PGK100,000 to support the Cancer Facility which is currently under construction at the Port Moresby General Hospital.
