The PNG Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative has praised the Mineral Resources Authority's and mine operators' efforts in developing a digital platform that would give real-time mineral data from all of the country's main mines.

According to Lucas Alkan, the National Secretary of the PNG Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (PNGEITI).

Live data, according to Mr. Alkan, will contain numbers reflecting production value, export value, and related information, which will be live-streamed from a data source of the respective mine operators.

After engineers finish their work, he said, Ok Tedi Mine would be the first to stream live data to the MRA website for public access, and other mines will follow soon after.

“The cooperation between the mine regulator and the extractive companies to make live data available for public viewing is an excellent undertaking to garner investor-public trust and confidence in the way the mining industry is regulated and progressing. PNGEITI highly commends these efforts,” Mr. Alkan said.

Mr. Alkan stated that PNGEITI applauds the leadership of the Mineral Resources Authority (MRA) under managing director Jerry Garry since this initiative will complement and enhance EITI reporting in the country.
