LAGAIP-Porgera MP Nixon Mangape has urged the government to support the Mt Kare mine by renewing Indochine’s exploration licence for another two years.
He also called on the people to support the company so that the Mt Kare project would start in the next two years as they have missed opportunities over the past 20 years due to landowner feuds.
Mangape, who comes from the area, said Indochine had discovered gold resource of more than two million ounces so far and needed to do more exploration.
He said he supported the extension and renewal of their exploration license.
Mangape added that leaders in Enga and Hela supported the Mt Kare project as the developer would partner with them to deliver infrastructure, services and benefits to the two provinces and their people.
“I call on the landowners to support us to work together for the benefit of the people.
“I appeal to all so-called landowners living in Port Moresby and Mt Hagen to stop grumbling and waste time in the media.
“I urge you to go back home and support Indochine mining.
“You have missed opportunities because of your tribal fights but now it’s time to change,” Mangape said.
“I’m also a landowner and a mandated leader. I represent the voices of the people and therefore I want the people to support me and the company to get the mine operating.”
