MGB R02 strengthens its Regional Task Force

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB), R02 through the leadership of Regional    Director Mario A. Ancheta strengthened the Regional Task Force to put a stop to illegal mining operations within the Region.

From January to present,  it already issued 2 stoppage orders to Lutra Company at Aparri, Cagayan for putting up a mineral processing plant without necessary permit and to Anthony Arugay of Larion Alto for illegally quarrying within the 1 kilometer buffer zone at Josefa Bridge, Alimanao, Penablanca, Cagayan.

The RTF also recommended to the  Governor who issued the Small-scale Mining Permit the issuance of a Stoppage Order to Well Resource Mining at Sta. Cruz,     Gonzaga for operating within the 200-meter buffer zone and without a Mineral Processing Permit. 

Aside from the immediate action on complaints against illegal mining    activities, the RTF conducted a region-wide inventory of all illegal small-scale mining  operations and submitted the result to the Central Office for evaluation and proper action.

MGB R02 RTF was once acknowledged by Bureau Director Leo L. Jasareno for being one of the most active Task Force in the entire MGB family. It is headed by MGB R02s Legal Officer, Socrates L. Bosi and direct supervision of RD Ancheta.
