    Dear Al,

    Check the news item below about TVI. You may recall sometime ago I wrote you a comment about the dangers of this mining company (and others). But you seem to be dimissive about it and referred me to the website of the company for more information about the “environmental safeguards” they were supposedly were incorporating in their system.

    I know TVI advertises in your Mindanao Examiner but for the sake of journalistic integrity, how about do a little follow up on this news item. Remember, I mentioned before that it is just a matter of time this mining venture will cause some disaster to the environment just like Zambales Mining left behind when they folded down.

    Best regards,

    A. Reader

    Philippines to Probe Claim of Dam Failure at TVI Pacific’s Mine

    By Luzi Ann Javier

    July 19 (Bloomberg) — The Philippine government will send a team to investigate an allegation from an environmental group that a dam collapsed at TVI Pacific Inc.’s gold and copper mine in Mindanao. The Calgary-based company said the claim was untrue.

    “We will convene a team to inspect ahead of the regular monitoring schedule,” Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Director Jessica Lucero said from Zamboanga city in Mindanao. The mine is normally inspected once every three months.

    The Philippines, which may have $1 trillion in mineral wealth, is trying to balance concerns for environmental safety with a drive to attract overseas investments in the mining industry. The government closed Lafayette Mining Ltd.’s copper- gold mine for 15 months from 2005 after a cyanide spill.

    The Kalikasan-People’s Network for the Environment said in a statement a so-called sulphide dam at the Canatuan mine in Siocon town, Zamboanga del Norte province, collapsed on July 11 after heavy rains. The group had photographs to back the claim, it said.

    The planned inspection “is fine with us,” Jay Nelson, vice president for the environmental department at TVI Pacific’s Philippine unit, said by phone today. The dam was still under construction, and will be used once a mill is completed in March, Nelson said.

  5. Hi!

    While browsing the Internet I cam across an article written by the Mindanao Examiner about the Sulu Archipelago. I was wondering if maybe you might be able to refer me to anyone who can help me with my research. Also can I have your phone number? And mobile if possible so it’ll be alot easier to contact you. There’s so much to be discovered about the island and we would like to discover some of the natural beauty the islands have. I have read about the Tubbataha Reef and I can’t wait to see it. But are there also others that are as beautiful as the Tubbataha but that are not yet common knowledge? Please let me know. I’m posting my number as well. Thanks so much and more power! I admire the Examinre’s advocacy.

    Sincerely,
    Abby
