The New Panguna Project Update
In 2017, Bougainville Copper Limited (BCL) continues to make progress in implementing our staged redevelopment plan for a new Panguna project.
BCL has established a management and operating team in Bougainville and opened an office in Buka.


In August BCL held its first board meeting in Bougainville in more than 27 years. BCL continues to respectfully build relationships with a range of stakeholders, including project area landowners and is increasing its presence in central Bougainville through the engagement activities of our local team.

BCL is pleased that it has been informed by the Department of Mineral and Energy Resources of the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG), that its application for the five-year extension of our exploration licence EL1 covering the Panguna mine area, has now been registered for the tenement renewal process under the Bougainville Mining Act 2015 (the Act). We welcome the commencement of the formal renewal process which includes community consultation.

In the interim, BCL continues to hold EL1 under Section 101(3) of the Act.
