Balabag: A documentary film on illegal mining in Zamboanga del Sur The illegal gold mining activities in the sleepy town of Bayog in the southern Philippine province of Zamboanga del Sur have been going on for the past 15 years. Small scale miners have illegally claimed hundreds of hectares of lands in Balabag in the mountain village of Depore and since then have caused tremendous environment pollution. The illegal miners used cyanide and nitric acid and other hazardous chemicals including mercury to process gold. And despite these problems, Filipino authorities are hapless in putting a stop to illegal mining in Bayog where miners blasted their way through tunnels with improvised explosives. Many laborers and miners had died from landslides and collapsed tunnels, but the greed over the ...

Balitok (Ilocano term for Gold) captures a slice of life and reality of indigenous tribes (Kalanguya and Kankana-ey) practicing artisanal or small-scale mining in Nueva Vizcaya as their means of economic survival. The documentary follows the laborious stages of mining (from extracting the ore, milling, panning and heating) from the point of view of Ongan (13 yr old small-scale miner) and Mona (artisanal miner since 1960's). The documentary can also serve as case study in the over-all situation of small-scale mining in the Philippines. The lush, mountainous and mineral rich province is one of the 23-28 Mining Priority Sites of the government.

On the 19th anniversary of the passage of the Mining Act of 1995 (RA 7942), nationally-coordinated actions across the Philippines were launched to call for the revocation of Pres. Benigno Simeon Aquino III's mining liberalization policies and projects. Executive Order 79 further reinforced the wholesale exploitation of mineral lands and worsened environmental destruction, land-grabbing and human rights violations. Similar protest actions were held in the Cordilleras in Northern Luzon and in Mindanao.
The World's Biggest Gold Mining - Documentary. It is impossible to know the exact date that humans first began to mine gold, but some of the oldest known gold artifacts were found in the Varna Necropolis in Bulgaria. The graves of the necropolis were built between 4700 and 4200 BC, indicating that gold mining could be at least 7000 years old. A group of German and Georgian archaeologists claims the Sakdrisi site in southern Georgia, dating to the 3rd or 4th millennium BC, may be the world's oldest known gold mine.

This video taken at surigao del sur mining
Marcventures Mining and Development (MMDC), which is mining in the Surigao del Sur towns of Cantilan and Carrascal, was suspended on April 22, 2014 by Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) for mining illegally in an unapproved area. Not covered by ECC, its mining activities were also found to be unsystematic and poorly engineered, causing massive siltation and destruction of the environs around Mt. Hilong-Hilong, a protected forest and watershed reserved area. In this video taken on May 29, 2014, MMDC's mining activities are clearly going full-scale, in defiance to the suspension order that limited its activities to "remediation." MGB, to date, has not yet penalized by MMDC and even allowed the company to ship some P500 million of "incidental ore" while it is under suspension.
