In an effort to reach out and help stakeholders on the ground, technical personnel from Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. V (MGB R.O.-V) conducted “Skills and Safety Management Training for Small Scale Miners” last July 2, 2020 at Malayan Resto and Tourist Inn, Paracale, Camarines Norte.

Participated in by Camarines Norte Minahang Bayan Consumer Cooperative members, MGB R.O.-V technical personnel dished out topics on Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of RA 7076, otherwise known as the People’s Small-Scale Mining Act of 1991 and Small-Scale Mine Safety Rules and Regulations as provided by DAO-2000-98 and pertinent Environmental Laws.
