Alexander Mining to start drilling next month

The National aka The Loggers Times

ALEXANDER Mining Ltd, a Canadian company prospecting for gold in Yangoru, East Sepik, is expected to go full swing next year with drilling jobs starting on Jan 12.

Gabriel Wara, chairman of a locally-based landowner company, said Alexander Mining said had been very busy since the issuance of the exploration licence EL1857 by the government in 2011 to do sampling, trenching and moving onto aerial and radio metric IP survey.

“I am pleased to announce that from these activities, the company had received good results and would proceed to drilling in January.

“I am confident that Alexander Mining has the capability, expertise and the funds to deliver the mine,” Wara said.

Three locations in the EL1857 area on the ranges of East Yangoru to Maprik where drilling would be carried out were identified last week with officers from the Environment Department.

    It is pleasing to note that sites selected for drilling were done with officers from the dept of Environment. If drilling results proof economic, landowners should not just give the go ahead with a blind eye for mining to commence. The Alexander rangers is the source of most of the river systems in East Sepik Province.As such proper environment environment impact plans and mitigations should be in place before mining can take place.We don’t for go the environment for a few years of economic gains.

    I will the drilling will eventually go ahead without resolving many of the landowners issues especially in the Yamil, Mendiamin & Chologun area in Yamil Tamaui LLG, Maprik Distrrict. It seems to be told by the principle LOs in the Yamil area in Maprik District that the mining project have been bulldozed by so called the LO Company executives who seem to do things outside of the LOs Free Prior and Informed Consent process. As per the mining act, the LOs where the drilling will be done have not signed any agreement regarding compensation payment as per mining act and Iam afraid the project is seem to start violating local people’s rights.

  4. The Alexander mine in East Sepik Province is taking place in 2 sites, Maprik (Mindiamin) and West Yangoru. The first drill is going to take place at Mindiamin Maprik District but Mr Gabriel Wara announceid in media that its going 2 take place in West Yangoru only and didn’t even mentioned Maprik which the first drill will be taking place in that area and not. Yangoru because of this I suggest people in Maprik (mindiamim) should take precaution about the mine

    (Mindiamin) which it is the place. Where the first drill is going to take place

  5. When will the first payment be made to landowners for environment damages?
