Lands and Mineral Resources Minister Mereseini Vuniwaqa is currently in Namosi and is expected to meet with the landowners and officials of the Namosi Joint Venture.
Her visit to Namosi follows the arrest of a 57-year-old man who allegedly told a group of construction workers contracted by the Namosi Joint Venture to stop work and remove the machinery from the Wainibama Access Road last week.
The man has also been charged with one count of obstruction under the Mining Act.
It is alleged that the man also erected a roadblock with other villagers without lawful authority.
