Extractions: Papau New Guinea is rich in natural resources, including minerals, timber, and fish, and produces a variety of commercial agricultural products. The economy generally can be separated into subsistence and market sectors, although the distinction is blurred by smallholder cash cropping of coffee, cocoa, and copra. About 75% of the country's population relies primarily on the subsistence economy. The minerals, timber, and fish sectors are dominated by foreign investors. Manufacturing is limited, and the formal labor sector consequently also is limited. In 1999 mineral production accounted for 26.3% of GDP. Government revenues and foreign exchange earning depend heavily on mineral exports. Indigenous landowners in areas affected by minerals projects also receive royalties from those operations. Papua New Guinea is richly endowed with gold, copper, oil, natural gas, and other minerals. Copper and gold mines are currently in production at Progera, Ok Tedi, Misima, and Lihir. New nickel, copper, and gold projects have been identified and are awaiting a rise in commodity prices to begin development. A consortium led by Chevron is producing and exporting oil from the Southern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. In 2001, it expects to begin the commercialization of the country's estimated 22.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves through the construction of a gas pipeline from Papua New Guinea to Queensland, Australia.

Extractions: Papau New Guinea (Source of information on this page credited to the CIA's - The World Factbook Background: The eastern half of the island of New Guinea - second largest in the world - was divided between Germany (north) and the UK (south) in 1885. The latter area was transferred to Australia in 1902, which occupied the northern portion during World War I and continued to administer the combined areas until independence in 1975. A nine-year secessionist revolt on the island of Bougainville ended in 1997, after claiming some 20,000 lives.

PAPAU NEW GUINEA: The Highlands The Southern Highlands is an area of Papua new guinea that was described in The descriptionfits; the geography of the area ranges from steaming lowland rain http://www.papuanewguineatravel.com/highland.htm
Extractions: One such lake is Kutubu, the unspoiled location of the major on-stream oil and gas fields operated by Chevron Niugini. Much of Mendi's development has been as a result of the comparatively recent mineral activity in the area, but in fact the first patrol station was set up in 1937 on Lake Kutubu, serviced by seaplanes, and it was the base from which almost all exploration of the Southern Highlands took place before World War II. However, economic development of the area only became possible in the 1970's when the Highlands Highway was extended into the province, reaching Mendi in 1974 and Tari not until 1977. Until this time the entire area was cut-off from the outside world so it is one of the least developed and culturally rich areas in the country.
