Revealing the Invisible Mine: Social complexities of an undeveloped mining project

3 November 2020

We are delighted to announce the release of a new book by Dr Emilka E. Skrzypek 

Exploring the social complexities of the Frieda River Project in Papua New Guinea, this book tells the story of local stakeholder strategies on the eve of industrial development, largely from the perspective of the Paiyamo – one of the project’s so-called 'impact communities'.

Engaging ideas of knowledge, belief and personhood, it explains how fifty years of encounters with exploration companies shaped the Paiyamo’s aspirations, made them revisit and re-examine their past, and develop new strategies to move towards a better, more prosperous future.
