Special Mine Lease (SML)

Awareness on juvenile trespassing

Juvenile trespassing continues to be an ongoing problem for the Porgera mine operation in Enga Province. Of the total number of illegal miners that enter the mine operations monthly, the mine’s Asset Protection Department (APD) reports that five percent are children.

Porgera Joint Venture’s (PJV) Community Development Section (CDS) this month carried out a school outreach program with the aim of raising awareness on the dangers of illegally entering the mine pit and other operational sites.
