50 tons of copper ores seized from small-scale miners in Surigao del Norte

Police operatives from the Malimono, Surigao del Norte police office who received information from Barangay officials of Barangay Masgad in said municipality confiscated recently some fifty tons of copper ores in Sitio Maybog, Barangay Masgad, Malimono, Surigao del Norte.

Malimono police said the copper ores extracted from said place have no corresponding permits from government which prompted them to confiscate it and now temporarily stored at the Multi-Purpose Hall, Brgy. Masgad, Malimono, Surigao del Norte.

Police said one Serafin Estrella, Jr. who claimed ownership of said materials failed to show any legal documents authorizing him to operate or engaged in mining activities.
The said extracted copper ores are set for transport to Cabadbaran City in Agusan del Norte where a local Filipino buyer with foreigner connections are set to buy the copper ores.

Police said the case was already referred to Surigao del Norte Provincial Environment and Mining Office or PEMO.

But small-scale miners requesting not to be identified for fear of their lives who extracted the copper ores for weeks to months and have not yet been paid are complaining alleging why many illegal mining and existence of mini-gold processing plants spewing dangerous toxic materials in Agusan del Sur continue to operate and proliferate unhampered right at the very eyes of authorities.

They also complained why existing mineral ore stockyards and gold ore stockyards and gold ore rod and ball mills found in Placer, Surigao del Norte allegedly continue to operate unhampered. (pia)
