MINING COMPANIES SKIRTING DAVAO CITY

An anti-mining ordinance has made Davao City a ‘no man’s land for mining companies which are forced to go to Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley for large-scale mining projects.
The Davao City Council has approved an ordinance banning mining of all kinds of minerals except non-metallic minerals.
The ordinance sounded off the strong anti-mining posturing of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte and former Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
Dabawenyos and environmentalists hailed the measure even as the mining industry said it would contest the legality of the ordigotonance in the Supreme Court.
