Gin-pasiguro sang Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) ang rivatlization sa mining industry kasunod sa pag-isyu sang ahensya sang kapin 35 ka explorations permits.

Suno kay Philippine Mining Club, Environment Undersecretary Jonas Leones nga ang isa sa mga prayoridad sang administrasyon ni President Bongbong Marcos amo ang mapasiguro ang viable mining industry.

“The mining contribution in recent years has plummeted to less than one percent in the country’s gross domestic product (GDP), thus the resurgence of the Philippine mining industry is a long overdue. To ensure the stakeholders economic condition improves, we must increase mining production, production value, taxes, royalties, employment and leakages,” suno kay Leones.

“The Philippines is blessed with both metallic and non-metallic minerals. Out of our land areas of 13 million hectares, around nine million hectares have high minerals potentials. Out of these, approximately 2.39 percent or 7,117,000 hectares are covered by mining contracts and permits, and out of these figures, about.27 percent our about 81,000 hectares are active mining areas,” dugang pa sini.

Ginpahayag man ni Leones nga may pila ka mga factors nga ginhataga sa mining industry apang wala ini ginbaton.

Gindugang man sini nga gindula na sang department ang moratorium on the acceptance, processing kga approval sang exploration permits.
