Illegal miners are warned not to enter the mine pit or the stockpile areas because they will be arrested and charged. This warning comes after the Joint Security Forces arrested another 5 people on Wednesday night during the State of Origin game, when they tried to enter the mine pit. Those 5 illegal miners arrested also had marijuana in their possession. They were people from other parts of Enga Province, and not land owners of the SML areas.





Health Authorities in Lae City have been working the whole of the weekend to contain a new outbreak of measles. After a sudden surge with 20 new cases from the Lae Polytech, a health team responded by vaccinating more than 200 staff and students yesterday. Other schools have been put on alert. 



“MILNE BAY TOWERS” – Bridgette Komatep


Transportation and improved communication remain priorities for the maritime province of Milne Bay as their Governor Titus Philemon recently officially launched two more Digicel communication towers.


The towers form part of the public private partnership on communications services between the Government and Digicel. The people of Tagula in the Louisiade Archipelago were connected with the launch of the first tower.


Following the launch, Governor Philemon presented a cheque of K1million for improved communication programmes for Woodlark and Rossel Islands. Digicel Director of Government Relations Gary Seddon said the company remains committed to providing 100 percent communication in 2014 and beyond.
