Every year Bougainvilleans graduate from secondary and tertiary institutions with the help of Bougainville Copper Foundation scholarships. Ivor Tsika graduated with a Bachelor of Pharmacy from the University of Papua New Guinea in 2013.



The vision of Bougainville Copper Limited is to return to active exploration and sustainable, profitable mining in the Autonomous Bougainville Province.

In 2015 BCL has continued to strengthen its regional relationships with the Autonomous Bougainville Government, the mine affected landowners, community leaders and the people of Bougainville.

The company is committed to working side by side with the people of Bougainville and mine-affected landowners as they discuss and consider the possible redevelopment of the Panguna copper, gold and silver mine.
It is expected that this year BCL will participate in a Bel Kol, a customary process of reconciliation, with the people of Bougainville.

A regular presence has been established on the ground, with company representatives making frequent visits to Bougainville to further strengthen relationships and communication with the government, community leaders and local people.
