Strong recommendations have been made by the North Bougainville Panguna Mine Negotiations Forum, for the world’s largest open cut mine, to be reopened.
All three districts in North Bougainville are supporting the mine’s reopening, but that must proceed only, if proper negotiations are completed.
The Bougainville Copper Limited will be the first partner.
It was also recommended, that all parties be represented fairly, in negotiations between the Bougainville Copper Limited, Autonomous Bougainville Government, and the PNG Government including the Landowners.
