PNG Government facilitating dialogue regarding mine

Staff Reporter | 9:19 PM | |

THE government is facilitating a meeting between parties to the Porgera mine project memorandum of agreement and Barrick for the company to become part of the revised agreement.
During review of project’s MoA last week in Kokopo, East New Britain, Barrick refused to become a party for various reasons including the fact that PJV was already a party to the direct compensation agreements with local stakeholders.
“I have taken the liberty to write to Barrick expressing these sentiments and Barrick has maintained their position that they do not wish to be a party.”
Chan said the state respected Barrick’s decision not to be a party but supported the need for a roundtable meeting between MOA parties and Barrick.
