Waisoi mining proposal tops agenda
July 18, 2012 7:00 pm
The Namosi Provincial Council will today – for the first time – meet face to face with the Tikina Namosi Landowners Committee.
Council Chair Ratu Romanu Matanitobua says the two parties will discuss issues regarding the proposed mine at Waisoi.
The TNLC has been campaigning for anti-mining in the province and claim they have the support of 92 percent of the people – following a survey.
Mining company Namosi Joint Venture says they have not seen the survey report as claimed – and cannot comment on the issue.
The Namosi Provincial Council says they are supposed to be working together with the TNLC but this is not eventuating.
