Mining Industry Questions DENR Audit -  Bizwatch
 
06:11
The Chamber of Mines of the Philippines is questioning the audit process of the Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources, just a few days before the official announcement of the audit results by the DENR. We asked Atty. Ronald Recidoro, Vice President for Legal and Policy of the Chamber of Mines, elaborated on their sentiments. Atty. Recidoro clarified that majority of the suspended mining companies have already obtained the requisite ISO certification, with the exception of one or two mining companies that have not yet complied with this. The mining audit conducted by the DENR under Secretary Gina Lopez is something that the present administration fully supports. The mining association laments the fact that there was a lack of experts to assess the social acceptability of the mine operations. The Association official also said that members of the civil society organizations present in the audit were harassing the Mines and Geosciences Bureau and the Environmental Management Bureau representatives when they have favourable findings on the mining project. He said, “We are concerned that the presence of the CSO representatives opposed to large-scale mining in the audit team will unduly influence results of the audit, specifically community satisfaction and social acceptance.” He added that mining companies are willing to comply with President Duterte’s directive of responsible mining. Earlier, the Chamber of Mines in the Philippines issued a statement welcoming the audit, saying that it would weed out the irresponsible miners. They also highlighted the significant contributions of responsible miners to the communities. With the audit results, however, many of the projects will not be able to push through.
