How We Care

Since we broke ground in 1992, we established a close relationship with the Indigenous Peoples and the communities in the area. We are among the mining groups in the Philippines to engage in community programs and development initiatives with the local communities.

We work with the local government units, barangay councils, national government agencies, and people's organizations in empowering the host and neighboring communities to be more responsible and self-reliant in order to provide them with an inclusive and sustainable future. Our Social Development and Management Program (SDMP) seeks to address poverty, provide education, provide accessible health services, and protect the environment among others.

Before we even began operations, or even made a profit, we made sure that the people, communities, and environment, were taken care of first.
