Small-scale Agusan mining facilities closed


BUTUAN CITY: At least six small-scale mining facilities in Agusan del Norte were padlocked for operating without permits and environmental clearance certificates (ECCs) by a multi-agency team headed by the Regional Office of the Mines and Geosciences Board (MGB). The mining facilities, located in Barangay Comagascas in Cabadbaran City, are owned and operated by Alfredo Roa, Nenita Ito, Jose Silao, Alfredo Labarete Jr., Lito Catarig and Jehu Cagaanan. Ador Patiño, MGO regional office engineer and head of the joint team, said the closure of the mining facilities was temporary, pending the application for a Minahan ng Bayan permit.
