Papua New Guinea 2: After the Gold Rush

Papua New Guinea 2: After the Gold Rush

For 16 years millions of tons of extract waste were pumped directly into the Ok Tedi River system in Papua New Guinea, causing serious environmental damage. For BHP, the gold and copper mine project became a public relations disaster. BHP insists that it learned only recently of the scale of environmental damage caused by the mine. Fearing further bad publicity and colossal legal claims, BHP announced plans to close the mine. But the PNG government wants them to stay. Whether its for the 10,000 people employed by the mine or to clear up the mess they made, the message is clear: it's an attempt to impose some form of long-term responsibilities on multi-nationals who work in developing countries. With stunning images, this documentary paints a bleak picture of the role of multi-national corporations in the developing world. Produced by Journeyman Pictures. 04/10DE JSCA 45 min.
