Fiji's government has given the green light to the Namosi Joint Venture (NJV) to recommence all activities relating to special Prospecting License including exploration, project studies and Waisoi Project Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) until 2015.

Prime Minister Commodore Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama made the decision following the successful rehabilitation of environmental issues raised by landowners earlier this year.

Government in a statement said the Tikina Namosi Landowners Committee (TNLC) and NJV have worked in partnership to address landowners’ concerns that enable both parties to develop a cooperative way forward.

"Government is pleased with NJV’s commitment to the rehabilitation works and the new initiatives that have been introduced which demand more consistent dialogue with Government and TNLC on future works (exploration and geo-technical studies including drillings) together with appropriate rehabilitation programs."

Government and the landowners will meet again once the EIA is completed.
