COMMITTED TO ENGAGEMENT -BCL

Building trust and deeper community relationships within Bougainville is central to the approach being taken by Bougainville Copper Limited (BCL). BCL is establishing a full-time presence in Bougainville and has appointed a locally based manager, and other personnel to lead our local engagement effort.


This follows ministerial forums conducted by the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG) in Panguna and Arawa in June 2017 which were well attended and demonstrated majority support to work towards a recommencement of mining with BCL’s involvement.

The proposed signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between the ABG and landowners would represent a notable milestone that BCL would warmly welcome.

This would reflect the goodwill and cooperation that we have experienced to date during our own direct engagement with land owners and others.
