Abstract

The 'Curse of Wealth': New Caledonia is home to around (or above) an estimated quarter of the world reserve of nickel- the French call it the 'caillou', the rock - and there is not much hope for indigenous people that multinational corporations will leave a place where there is so much to exploit. SMSP and Xstrata have recently invested US$3.8 billions in what is to become one of the biggest nickel mining operations in the world. Overall recent mining investments reach US$7 billions.
