MASSIVE LANDSLIDE IN BENGUET due to ILLEGAL MINING / DUTERTE FOR FULL CLOSURE








Itogon councilor Arnel Bangawan said that the small mining in the area might be a factor of the massive landslide in Ucab, Benguet. The barangay captain of Ucab in Itogon also admitted that the mining has no permit to operate


and thus mining in the affected area is illegal.


The local government in Benguet immediately addressed the issue after President Rodrigo Duterte directed the local authorities to regulate and close-down illegal mining.


Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu has ordered a crackdown on illegal small-scale mining operations in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) following the landslide.
