Davao City and Biliran province approved as mining-free zones.

House passed Bills 3166 and 872, declaring Davao City and Biliran Province, respectively, as mining-free zones.

House committee on natural resources chaired by Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate (Party-list, Bayan Muna) passed these two House Bill. Zarate said, “it is the policy of the State to protect and advance the right of the people to a balanced and healthful ecology in accord with the rhythm and harmony of nature.”

House Bill 3166.

 “An Act Declaring the City of Davao as a Mining-Free Zone,” explained that “if opened to mining operations, a world-class city like Davao City would unnecessarily be endangered by deforestation and the risks attributed to mining since the place is traversed by Davao River from the highlands to the lowlands.” 
Author: Rep. Alberto Ungab (3rd District, Davao City)

House Bill 872.

 “An Act Declaring Biliran as mining-free zone,” stressed that mining will be destructive to Biliran, citing the province’s small land area which is composed of two volcanic islands.
