Hello BCL Friend,

I was on Bougainville for 19 years and the last GM on site.

Could you please add this to your blog:

I am interested to assist our Bougainvillean Friends and restart the Panguna operation,

Since leaving Bougainville I was involved in planning, commissioning of Kelian Equatorial Mining in Indonesia, Phu Kham of Panaust in Laos and Consulting for several Mining Companies in Mongolia, Indonesia, PNG and even in Australia.

Presently semi-retired and trying to get support to re-open the Panguna Operation which is needed to assist the people of Bougainville to become economically independent and achieve their full potential.

Love your blog.
