Call for new PNG government to stop deep sea mining

Updated 28 May 2012, 9:31 AEST

There's been a new call for the incoming government in Papua New Guinea to stop the Nautilus Deep Sea mining project going ahead.

The National co-ordinator of the environment group, Mas Kagin Tapani Association, Wenceslaus Magun says just about every mining project in PNG so far has been an environmental disaster.

He says with weak legislative controls and poor infrastructure and the experimental nature of the Nautilus project, he fears the worst.
