Lihir landowners pus for balanced development

A Lihir elder, Mark Soipang, said despite 15 years of gold operations, Lihir resource owners are yet to see development.

Soipang says that resource owners, who come under the administration of the Lihir Mining Area Landowners Association (LMALA), are currently pushing to maximize mining benefits.

They believe that the second review of the Integrated Benefits Package (IBP) is their only hope towards achieving their goal of a sustainable future.

LMALA with the help of Catholic Archdiocese in Kavieng and stakeholders including the Nimamar Rural Local Level Government, are now working together to make this a reality under the LSDP implementation process.
