A fact-finding mission has recorded a growing number of human rights violations featuring mining in the Province of Nueva Vizcaya. These involve multinational mining companies including the Australian based OceanaGold and Royalco, as well as the British Metals Exploration (owner of the Philippine FCF Minerals Company). A number of violations were recorded, with a request to investigate damage to the local river systems.
Meanwhile, yet more people have been killed around Glencore Xstrata‘s proposed mine at Tampakan (although this time it is government forces to blame).
