Revealing the Invisible Mine : Social Complexities of an Undeveloped Mining Project Hardback

Part of the Pacific Perspectives: Studies of the European Society for Oceanists series

Description

Located amid tropical rainforest in the heart of Papua New Guinea, the Frieda River area is home to one of the biggest undeveloped gold and copper deposits in the Pacific.

This book offers an account of local stakeholder strategies as they unfolded at Frieda over forty years.

It describes how they attempted to use the complex social situation in the area to develop Frieda's rich gold and copper deposits.

The book provides a strong and novel commentary on sustainability and social accountability of the mining industry operating in indigenous territories.
