Lopez bans prospective open-pit mines
Thursday, April 27, 2017

sgl presscon 4 27 17b

Secretary Gina Lopez on Thursday has issued an administrative order banning all prospective open-pit mines in the country.

Lopez said the total ban, contained in DENR Administrative Order No. 2017-10, shall cover "open-pit method of mining for copper, gold, silver and complex ores."

She, however, clarified that quarrying will not be covered by the ban as such method of extraction would only be regulated.

A quarry is an open-pit mine that produces building materials and dimension stones, such as granite, marble and limestone, among others.

Lopez said the destructive nature and its potential for a disaster were the main reasons why she decided to impose a ban on open-pit mining. >> more
