More attend mining forum
by Joseph B. Zambrano / PIA

More mining stakeholders and exhibitors participated in the 66th Annual National Mine and Safety and Environment Conference in Baguio City.

Dr. Walter W. Brown, president of the Philippine Mines Safety and Environment Association (PMSEA), said 150 mining companies and suppliers and 135 exhibitors registered in the four-day conference, compared with the 126 companies that participated last year.

The increase in the number of participants shows there are many who are interested and want to be part of the annual mining conference, Brown said.

The massive information campaign launched by the mining industry was a big help since the public is informed of the activities done for responsible mining and its big contribution not only to the economy but also in health, education, and environmental programs, he added.

“In the past, many of those who joined the exhibit were solely from the mining industry. But now, the number of suppliers increased, meaning, they saw the big opportunity for their business due to the operation of responsible of miners,” Brown said.

With the challenges encountered by the mining firms like suspension of operation and closure orders, stakeholders of the industry did not show any sign that they are losing, he said, although he reiterated that mining companies should comply with mining laws and practice responsible mining.
