T he landowners of the latest bauxite mining site in Nadua, Wainunu, in Bua have received their most recent payment of $60,000.

Turaga ni mataqali Navunivuvudi Inosi Masivava said they received this payment

late last week from the iTaukei Land Trust Board.

“This is the second payment, the first was made last year which was $100, 000 at around June,” Mr Masivava said.

He said this was after numerous requests made to obtain funds from TLTB in recent months.

Isireli Dagaga of Aurum Exploration Limited confirmed that they had paid a sum of $1.8 million last year to TLTB for the exploration works.

The mataqali is made up of 24 members.

Works are yet to begin at the site.
