Firm vows to uphold mining law

Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya (11 October) -- A mining firm here has assured villagers and local officials in this town that their company will carefully adhere to the provisions of the 1995 Mining law and follow the guidelines for responsible mining.

Jonathan Bangloy, MTL Philippines environment officer said the company is strictly observing the provisions of the mining law specially on the rehabilitation works.

Bangloy added that revegetation of its 37 drill pads, ranging from 7 by 7 meters to 10 by 10 meters will be done to ensure that no amount of erosion will happen in the area.

"The slopes are also rip-rapped with rocks and planted with cash crops to strengthen its hold," Bangloy said.

While using bentonite, a biodegradable lubricant for the drilling machine, a mud pit is dugged to contain waste water during drilling operations.

A solid waste management program is also strictly enforced within the base camp while employees shall be required for a regular medical check-up which will be paid by the company, Bangloy said. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
