Catholic Bishops have called on voters in the forthcoming Philippine election to consider the track record of every candidate in regard to logging, large-scale mining, and other ecological concerns. DCMI (not to be confused with minerals company, DMCI) has issued a follow-up press release on the April 2nd tailings "incident" at TVI's Canatuan mine - with photographic evidence of the breaches. Using the money, UK-Swiss based Xstrata is investing in the Tampakan project, Indophil is looking to expand its portfolio of mines outside the Philippines, while APC Mining, Philnico and Rusina are all looking to expand within the country.
