The company said that this application followed the review earlier this year by Newcrest (50%) and Harmony Gold Mining (50%) on the project's feasibility study. Wafi-Golpu is 60km south-west of Lae in Morobe Province.

"The future development of the project will ultimately be subject to approval by the boards of both Newcrest and Harmony, market and operating conditions, the grant of a special mining lease and obtaining all necessary permits, approvals and agreements required from the PNG government, landowners and other stakeholders," Newcrest said.
