4 mining companies sinuspinde ng DENR

 

MANILA, Philippines — Kauupo pa lamang sa pwesto pero kaagad umaksyon si Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Regina “Gina” Lopez laban sa apat na mining companies.

Sinabi ni Lopez ngayong Biyernes na lumabag sa environmental safety standards ang mga kompanya alinsunod sa Writ of Kalikasan na inilabas ng Korte Suprema.

Dagdag niya na nakatanggap na ng reklamo ang BenguetCorp Nickel Mines Inc., Zambales Diversified Metals Corp., LNL Archipelago Minerals Inc. and Eramen Minerals Inc. ng environmental degradation, usurpation of farmland, fish ponds and coastal areas, denudation of forests at lack of funds for progressive rehabilitation.

“It meets the need of the present (generation) without compromising the ability of the future generation to meet their own needs with the view of improving quality of life both now and in the future,” sabi ni Lopez.

Nagbabala rin siya na marami pang kompanya ang maaaring masuspinde kapag natapos nila ang kanilang audit.

Kinabibilangan ng mga agriculturists at fishery experts ang kanilang auditing team.

“That’s what responsible mining is all about.”
