Abra LGU reminded of duty to regulate quarrying operations
by MGB release

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau Cordillera has reminded the Provincial Mining Regulatory Board (PMRB) of Abra of its duty to oversee the issuance of permits for sand and gravel extraction in the province.

MGB officials met with the PMRB in response to letters the agency has been receiving about unregulated quarrying in Abra.

In its meeting at the Capitol in Bangued MGB-CAR last April 5, OIC Fay W. Apil said sand and gravel extraction activities in the province need to be regulated and monitored.

A representative from the Office of the Governor, who co-chairs the PMRB; representatives from the sangguniang panlalawigan, and the small-scale mining communities, personnel of the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office, Community Environment and Natural Resources Office of Lagangilang, and staff of the Vice Governor’s Office were provided information on the laws pertinent to sand and gravel regulation.

MGB-CAR OIC Chief of the Mine Management Division Alfredo J. Genetiano gave a lecture on the local government unit’s role on the approval of applications for sand and gravel, quarry, guano, gemstone gathering and gratuitous permits and for industrial sand and gravel permits not exceeding five hectares within their respective jurisdiction, subject to valid and existing mining rights.

Permits can be obtained from the PMRB. The application process involves submission to the Office of the Governor a location map, work program, proof of technical competence, proof of financial capability, environmental protection program; environmental compliance certificate, and area status and clearance/consent the concerned agency or landowner.  If all requirements are complete, these will be endorsed to the governor for approval.
