On this episode of Resource PNG, we take a look at a partnership between Puma Energy and Youth with a Mission (YWAM). YWAM has been providing much needed medical services in the southern region of Papua New Guinea for numerous years.
Recently, Puma Energy increased its support for YWAM through a youth development program. Under this agreement, youth from villages around Puma Energy’s Napa Napa Refinery will be selected to undertake training on board YWAM’s vessel with the aim of giving back to the communities in the long term.
The Mineral Resources Authority (MRA) continues to play a key role in Papua New Guinea’s mining sector. Apart from its role as a regulator for mining, the MRA also has a geological survey team that focuses on promoting mining industry in Papua New Guinea.
Resource PNG spoke to MRA Executive General Manager, Nathan Mosusu, on the role of the geological survey division and how its role plays a part in engaging interests from investors to look to PNG as a mining destination.
