The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has committed to make a thorough review of all mining applications in the island province of Guimaras.

“All pending applications will be under serious study,” said DENR Secretary Jose “Lito” Atienza during a recent visit here.

Guimaras Gov. Felipe Nava said the communities oppose the move on large-scale mining explorations.

The Guimaras provincial government even initiated a massive awareness campaign by posting several “Spare Guimaras” streamers to urge the agency’s Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) to deny applications for massive mining activities. (Click here for the rest.)
