Ownership of PNG minerals

ABC “PNG worries over giving mineral ownership to landowners.”

“North Fly MP, Boka Kondra says mineral ownership should be given to the landowners. He has therefore given notice to introduce a bill to change PNG’s Mining Act of 1992. If passed, it will replace the word ”State” with ”landowners” as owners of minerals discovered.”
