Chairman of the Gold Ridge Mining Limited Walton Naezon says as of yesterday the National Government has supplied three communities with tanks.
He says the chairman of the Government task force has confirmed that tanks were supplied to communities living near the Gold Ridge site.
“So the government as of yesterday has supplied I think three communities already. I spoke to one of my directors who is working with the government to install the tanks and the Chair of the government task force to Gold Ridge Bradley Tovosia and he has confirmed that about three communities have received water tanks. Other communities have their own water supply source and the government will need only to upgrade them.”
SIBC News understands the date for the dewatering process will be made public as soon formalities are completed.
