“We conducted a survey to find what they wanted. From there we gauged that around 92% of the people who have land in Waisoi – these people do not want mining.”

Meanwhile Namosi Provincial Council chairman – Ratu Romanu Matanitobua says there the TNLC should follow the proper channel in releasing the survey results.

“If they have the endorsement of this number why don’t they come out of their shell and talk it out with the government. They should not try to burden the company who is trying to go forth with its work.”

The mining company – Namosi Joint Venture says they have not seen the survey and therefore cannot comment on it.
