Mom urges DENR, PNP to stop small-scale mining in NVizcaya town

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (October 7) -- A provincial board member here has asked the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Philippine National Police(PNP) to cause the stoppage of small scale mining activities in barangay Runruno in Quezon town.

Board member Merlie Talingdan, chair of the provincial board's environment committee in its resolution 2009 830 cited the research of the Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) showing the use of copper, lead and arsenic including dynamite among small scale miners in barangay Runruno as threats to the health and environment of the village and the province as a whole.

"The study proves that there is much to be done in forest rehabilitation and protection, land claims, ownership, community education and the hazards of small scale mining, resource planning and management, agricultural product utilization and marketing, employment and skills development," she stressed.

Provincial environment and natural resources officer Robert Apigo however said that they have endorsed the resolution to the Mines and GeoSciences Bureau (MGB) of the DENR.

"The MGB is the lead sector in stopping mining activities in barangay Runruno. We will also facilitate their action," he said. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
