• BAM Aquino urges firms to practice responsible mining


    IBA, Zambales: Sen. Paulo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV on Thursday said mining companies in northern Zambales should practice responsible mining and ensure the protection and preservation of the environment or stop their operations. Here for the launch of Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI) Negosyo Center, Aquino was asked to comment on the alleged destructive mining besetting the towns of Santa Cruz and Candelaria.

    “Mining operations are not necessarily bad and can help the country and the economy, but miners should be responsible and must make sure not to harm or destroy the environment during their operations,” he said.
