NEWCREST Exploration Fiji Limited will employ a small number of people to assist with its proposed exploration works and associated environmental program at Mount Kasi in Cakaudrove.

The company's country manager Greg Morris said they would also be contracting service providers and suppliers in the North during the explorative stages.

Mr Morris said Newcrest attended a government-initiated meeting in May last year with landowners and the local community aimed at providing an overview of Newcrest's proposed exploration program.

"Further consultations with landowners are planned prior to the start of the exploration program," he said.

"Newcrest expects to employ a small number of local people to assist with the exploration and associated environmental program.
