Enga Governor Grand Chief Hon Sir Peter Ipatas formally presented the papers to Minister Pala at the Enga Teachers College in Wabag, Enga Province.

Governor Sir Ipatas said during the occasion, that the country had seen the positives and the negatives of the mine’s operations in the last 30 years. He said in the last 30 years of the mine’s operations, Enga Province stakeholders had five percent share in the project, where the provincial government had 2.5, and the Porgera Special Mining Lease (SML) landowners had the other 2.5 shares.

“Now is the time to improve the conditions of the agreement of the past,” said Governor Ipatas.
