Source: The National, Wednesday 02nd of January, 2013

A GROUP claiming to be the rightful landowners of Mt Tundaka in Margarima district, Hela, want authorities to consult it before carrying out mining activities.
The group is led by paramount chief Lombaya Yuwi, Buga Lombaya, Kane Lombaya, Wabi Arali and Kebaya Egali from the Mt Tundaka area.
In a statement, Yuwi said Mt Tundaka was part of Southern Highlands before the formation of Hela as a separate province.
He claimed there was another group of people claiming to be landowners of Mt Tundaka.
Yuwi said he represented the people of Margarima, upper Wage, lower Wage and central Margarima.
He said his group found out that another group was inviting outsiders to explore Mt Tundaka.
He said he and his landowners were the “only legal group to handle any negotiations on mining exploration”.
