Since the Philippines is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, the volcanic activities has produced different minerals for our country. The Philippines is ranked as the 5th most mineral-rich country in the world for copper, nickel, gold and chromite. Globally, the Philippines places third as the largest gold producer, fourth for copper and fifth for nickel. Gold is being responsibly mined in Masbate by Filminera Resources and Masbate Gold Project. Mining has pushed other countryâ€™s economy â€“ like that of Canada and Australia â€“ to great heights. They practice responsible mining and it reflects on how they rehabilitate their environment before, during and after mining.

The mining industry is still evolving as laws are adjusted to protect the interest of our people and the environment. This is to put the best interest of our country who is the fifth most mineral-rich country in the world for gold, nickel, copper, and chromite. No wonder, multi-billion companies will stop at nothing to mine our resources that is why a responsible mining act and an effective environmental management program to rehabilitate the affected areas must been enforced and implemented immediately.
Mining Responsibly is possible if the company is willing to work on it and take the time to really follow protocol and help the local community. One example of this mining site is the Masbate Gold Project in Aroroy, Masbate. The Masbate Gold Project is a joint venture between 2 Philippine Companies and A Canadian Mining company.
RESPONSIBLE MINING also involves only 20-25 years of mining and its rehabilitation is done for another 10-15 years. RESPONSIBLE MINING requires ISO and best environmental management programs. Only capable and able mining companies have the heart to marry mining and the least disturbance to be done in the environment. Doing these, we have the environment’s and our future’s welfare in mind.
According to the article of PDI, Filminera said the IAD plan was aligned with relevant DENR programs like the National Greening Program, Biodiversity Program, Biochar Program for Agricultural and other Wastes, Coastal Research and Management, Clean Water and Air Programs and Solid Waste Management Program.
If most mining companies have done these programs, most communities would be better served and more mining companies will stay open. So if you are in the mining industry please take note of these and implement them to ensure your long-term business.
Scientists, health engineers are still discovering the many usage of gold as it possesses a good quality in treating and detecting diseases. That is why it is hard to live without gold. And we have to rely on mining to extract it for us. Just like in Masbate, where Filminera and Masbate Gold project use a strong year-round environmental management program to minimize the disturbances done to the environment. They plant trees, protect watersheds, plant mangroves and provide the community with various livelihood programs aside from education, infrastructure and healthcare.

Responsible Mining is the best solution to address all problems concerning mining. As mining cannot help but cause environmental and social change, responsible mining calls for all mining industries to
(a) AVOID or MINIMIZE harm to the environment (with good environmental management plans at hand implemented long-term), (b) respect human rights and provide jobs to the local community (c) create a very safe workplace for people and the environment and lastly (d) responsible mining demands the mining industries to leave a good legacy in that community thru building infrastructures like roads, schools, hospitals and others.
Mining has always been a part of the Filipino lives. This was evident as early as 1000 BC when our ancestors mined for gold, silver, copper and iron and made into gold ingots, chains, calombigas, earrings, gold dagger hangers and even tooth plating. Natives and early Filipinos bartered for gold, pearls and agate with merchants from Arab, Asia and Europe. That is why when Ferdinand Magellan first saw the natives wearing gold ornaments from head to toe … he knew our island is rich not only in gold but with other minerals. He had every reason to conquer us not more than our spices or goods, religion or God but because of Gold.
