It was followed by the presentation of Engr. Glenn Marcelo C. Noble, the Regional Director of MGB RO-XIII on what is MGB.

“The Mines and Geosciences Bureau is not just for the minerals industry. The MGB is for everyone, for the IPs, for our local government, and of course, the public as a whole”, Engr. Glenn Marcelo Noble said.

Meanwhile, the #MineResponsibility Campaign which includes informative videos entitled “Kutsara”, “Minsan kitang Minahan”, and “Biyaya ng Lupa” were presented during the conference and were applauded by the delegates.

MGB’s staunch for responsible mining was presented by the Regional Director of MGB RO-XII, Engr. Felizardo B. Gacad, Jr. He emphasized what is expected from Miners - he said that miners are expected to be granted a license, a social license every day, meaning to say this is the harmonious relationship that will be able to establish or should be able to establish the practice of responsible mining with the members of the community. And also, an environmental stamp of approval wherein programs implemented should address environmental impacts of activities, not through mere compliance but it has to go beyond compliance.

“We do understand that minerals and mining industry have always been considered as drive for economic development not only for the Philippines but also to the other countries. And now, this present administration is pursuing reforms in the minerals industry not purely for protection gains but with due and equal regard for environmental and social development”, he added.

Afterwards, Ms. Josephine B. Marrero, President of Imine, presented the “Tri-sectoral Partnership Among Permit Holders, MGB and Communities Results in Effective IEC”. She emphasized the accomplished activities undertaken by her organization to promote the responsible mining in our country which includes river projects. They have identified rivers in Region 1 such as Agno, Abra and Padsan rivers as pilot areas for information campaign. They have also published an Imine gazette. The first edition of the said gazette was published and launched on July 12, 2016. Additionally, the organization conducted painting of Imine murals along the highways of San Jacinto, Pangasinan, and Santa, Ilocos Sur. These murals were painted for the students to appreciate and be informed on the environmental protection and development.

“Our goal is to build a balanced information in education on responsible mining in showing public and community support and participation”, Ms. Marrero said.

One speaker that was lauded by the audience was Mr. Ryan S. Rocacurva who was once a leader of the protest rally for their community and small scale mining against the Apex Mining Company. Mr. Rocacurva shared his life changing experience before and after working with Apex Mining Company. He said “Ngayon bitbit nila (komunidad) ang tagumpay; kasi noong una, ako ay naging isang lider ng maling akala at maling daan. Noong dumating ang Apex sa buhay ko ay naging matuwid na daan ang aking napuntahan. Kaya nagbigay kami sa mga kapwa namin, sa komunidad. Doon sa komunidad nakikita namin paano nadala ng Apex Mining Company ang totoong responsableng minahan sa amin”.

Another presentation from the Apex Mining Company entitled “Go for Gold: Pursuing Partnership for Quality Education” was discussed by Ms. Jennilyn E. Lansang. This partnership is best known as the Bayanihan in Compostella Valley. She said that education is the important key or equal opportunity so that the government along with the private companies strive so much to make education inclusive and accessible to all. She also highlighted the four keys on sustainability in the field which includes (1) continued care, (2) sustainability, (3) capacity building, and (4) best practices.

Subsequently, Mr. Chito S. Maniago, the Regional Director of the Communication and Public Affairs of CEMEX presented the “Efforts and Various Endeavors to Promote Culture, Care and Change within Mining Company and Host Communities”. He said that first in the five pillars of community relations is “Walk the talk”. Beyond press releases and noises, we must be sincere in our efforts. He also highlighted the importance of good community relations team especially during crisis situations.

“I believe from the bottom of my heart that COMREL is one of, if not, the most difficult job in the industry”, he said.

After all the series of presentations discussed in the event, an open forum was conducted to address the queries and concerns of the delegates. The event ended with the closing remarks of Engr. Rodolfo L. Velasco, Jr., the Chief, Mine Safety, Environment and Social Development Division of MGB. Jessa Ammugauan

Personnel from the Mines and Geosciences RO II attended the 66th Minerals Industry Symposium on November 21, 2019 held at CAP-John Hay Trade and Cultural Center Baguio City, Philippines.  This year’s theme “66 Years of Responsible Mining: Culture Care Change” was best explained by Dr. Walter W. Brown, the President of PMSEA “We cannot be responsible miners unless we understand and respect the culture of the varied communities in which we operate in. We should sincerely care for the welfare of these communities. Being adaptable to change must come not only from our host communities where we operate in, but also from us in the industry by opening our minds and hearts and being truly interested in the welfare of the people ”.

The symposium proper kicked off with the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Acting Director Atty. Wilfredo G. Moncano who discussed five (5) new policy directions for the incoming year 2020 which were: strong monitoring and enforcement, people-oriented by providing jobs and benefits to communities, completion of environmental rehabilitation of abandoned mines and mined-out areas, increase in contribution to national income, transformation into a world-class and competitive mining industry and wider implementation of risk resiliency program to support the climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction program of the government.  The MGB campaign launch for #MINERESPONSIBILITY IEC videos namely: "Kutsara" infomercial, "Minsan kitang Minahan" online advertisement, and "Biyaya ng lupa" documentary were also presented to the audience members which gave a fresh perspective on the importance of mining in our daily lives. One highlight during the event were some mining engineering students from the University of South Eastern Philippines who showcased their Information and Education Campaign experience at their local public and private high schools back in March 2019. According to the students, they were surprised with the positive feedbacks from their target audience and plan to continue the campaign with high school students  from other communities.

An open forum was then conducted to clarify issues and answer questions from the audience members

This annual event was spearheaded by the Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association which was attended by stakeholders from mining companies, mining contractors and suppliers, government agencies, and academes to discuss a series of lecture focusing on the current situations, challenges, and beneficial contributions of the mining industry. #Kyrie Cleofe Afidchao

Sand and Gravel Extraction IEC Continues in Tuguegarao City

w7

During the conduct of the dialogue, processing of Sand and Gravel permits was briefly explained first and then followed by open forum proper. Worth-noting from one of the meetings is the presentation of Barangay Cataggaman Viejo’s Financial Statement Income and Expenditures where it showed that approximately Php 230,400  was collected from quarry operators for its extraction fees for January-June 2019. They showed how significant this is as it is their largest income generation compared to their other collection on barangay clearances, certification fees and business taxes. Collection from Sand and Gravel comprises 11.56% of their Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) which is Php 1,992,252. Moreover, collection from sand and gravel is not maximized as one of the permit holders has a pending status and if given the go-signal to operate by PLGU-Cagayan, the amount should have reached around Php 400,000 by now.

The dialogue in Cataggaman Viejo was also attended by a group of farmers and expressed their concern on the farm-to-market roads because same road is also used by the quarry operators. All they ask is for these roads to be maintained so they can harmoniously use them for their livelihood. As per dialogue, representative of Siriban Quarry committed to backfill and level the said roads. #bridgetgruiz
