Before the Gold Rush

While there, David collected another 200 grams of gold and Piwa collected 20 grams. By day two in the bush there was an argument over the dish.

It had also been raining heavily and there was a lot of water flooding the area.

After three days the boys headed back to Komoko. David then went back to Porgera with some of the gold to show to Panaia Mangobe (his relative). His intention was to inform geologists about the gold and have them examined the told. He told Panaia that the gold was found at Mt. Kare and that there was more where it was found.

David then sold the nuggest to Panaia, who was an employee at Porgera Joint Venture (PJV) for K1,000. He used themoney to buy a gold dish and took some food and headed to the same spot at Mt. Kare. Another two days was spent in the bush panning for more gold before returning to Komoko.

By this time, word spread like a bush fire that there was gold at Mt. Kare. David found out later that Panaia and Piwa had told others of his secret.

At the same time, anexpoloration company sent in by CRA set up camp at Mt. Kare to carry out explorations for gold.

David stayed on for a week panning for more gold, while more people from Tari and Paiela kept pouring into the area. David then packed this things and went back to Komoko where he accumulated all the gold he had collected. He left about 10 kilograms and took only one kilogram to Tari where he asked Hungari Palena to accompany him to Port Moresby.

History was then made; David Akori was the first person to sell alluvial gold from Mt. Kare at the Metal Refineries in Port Moresby at its old location at Korobosea, the current site of the Malaoro Supermarket. REcords show that David collected K8,000 from the sale.

by 1997, there were headlines about the gold rush at Mt. Kare, on the boarder of Enga and Southern Highlands Provinces in the highlands of Papua New guinea and many believed it was going to be another project like Porgera.

David Akori thinks that he sighted Lake Yundika because his is both a member of the Puluma and the Heli clans.

On many occasions, such stories like this are believed to be fictional, however, the names of persons mentioned will support this tory. Over the years from 1986 - 1999, David was able to collect gold nuggest in Mt. Kare, which he sold to various buyers in Papua New Guinea and Australia.

During the past 13 years David has found ogld nuggets at sites only indicate din the dreams.

Records will show that David had sold gold nuggets sfor Mt. Kare to the following buyers:


1. Metal Refineries - Port Moresby
2. Wanaka Gold Exporters - Mt. Hagen.
3. Perth Mill - Western australia.
4. Golden West - Cairns Australia.
