A network of people affected by gold mining in Phichit and Phetchabun provinces is campaigning against any renewal of the licence of the country's largest gold miner, Akara Resources Ltd, which expires on May 31.
About 60 representatives of the network on Tuesday petitioned Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, chief of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), to disallow the licence renewal.
The complaint was lodged at the complaints centre at the PM’s office of the permanent secretary’s public service centre.
