THE Wau Small Scale Mining School will continue to benefit from funding from the Bulolo joint district planning and budget priorities committee each year to train local alluvial miners.
Bulolo MP and JDP&BPC chairman Sam Basil presented K93,500 last Saturday to Al Comparativo, manager of the school, to facilitate training of miners from the 110 wards of Bulolo.
The school was established by Mineral Resources Authority and Basil said the committee was obliged to continue its support.
“We have facilitated funding for 2014 training which will take in 110 participants from each of the wards.
“They will participate in the level one course and return to complete level two,” Basil said.
“The traditional long-term alluvial miners can be found between the highway between Bulolo and Wau towns and recently, we have increased activities of alluvial mining along Bulldog Track and along Waria Valley into Buang.
“The future of Bulolo’s economy will be on the hands of alluvial miners.”
Basil said from the estimated K400 million projected into the national economy in 2011, more than K100 million came from the Bulolo alluvial miners.
“With continued support, I believe that MRA will have continued trust in Bulolo district and I will make sure that our support continues as long as I remain the Bulolo MP.”
Comparativo thanked the Bulolo JDP&BPC on behalf of the MRA.
Basil said only Grade 12’s passing out of Grace Memorial Secondary and Grade 10’s from Baiyun High who have been selected into tertiary institutions will be accorded sponsorship from the Bulolo JDP&BPC
