Papua New Guinea: Community members raise concerns over licence extension for Porgera gold mine

Auteur: Jarni Blakkarly, SBS, Publié le: 9 October 2018

"PNG landowners battle against one of the world's biggest gold miners", 1 October 2018

Papua New Guinea locals who live alongside one of the largest gold mines in the world are calling for the government to block attempts to extend...mining licence.

The mine has been operating for almost 30 years, but the license for the Porgera Gold Mine in Papua New Guinea's Enga province is due to expire in May...

Locals say the promises of jobs and benefits from the mine have only reached a few, while the rest still live in extreme poverty and have lost access to their traditional lands.

Community members gathered at a meeting...to voice their anger...Australian lawyers advising the group objecting to the mine's extension say the landowners deserve proper compensation...

A spokesman for Barrick Niguini Limited, the local arm of the company operating the joint venture, said they always paid compensation and royalties and that the mine had brought significant infrastructure and benefit to the local area.

[also refers to Barrick Gold and ZinJin]
