• ‘Zambales mining suspension order still in place’


    The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) has recommended the continued suspension of three nickel mining companies, namely; LNL Archipelago Minerals Inc., Benguet Corp Nickel Mines Inc.and Eramen Minerals Inc., in Santa Cruz, Zambales after the firms failed to comply with all the conditions including full rehabilitation of the adversely affected river systems set by the government regulator. Suspension Orders were issued against the companies on July 15, 2014 in response to the complaints of residents of nickel siltation of river systems, farmlands, fishponds and seashore.
