This discussion looks at some of the civil unrest on Bougainville Island in the mid 1990s with specific reference to the Panguna Mine. The hidden costs of the mining operations and environmental concerns of the time are explored.

An interesting retrospective for someone investigating modern environmental impacts of mining to compare with concerns in 1992.
