The Provincial Mining Regulatory Board (PMRB) of Ifugao , composed of Mines and Geosciences Bureau – Cordillera Administrative Region (MGB-CAR), OIC Regional Director and PMRB Ifugao Chairperson, Fay W. Apil; Ifugao Provincial Governor and PMRB Ifugao Co-chairperson, Hon. Jerry U. Dalipog represented by his Executive Assistant Peter Bunnag and Provincial Legal Officer Atty. Reginald Buduhan; National Government Representative and PMRB Ifugao member, Mr. Miguel B. Dimalnat; and Small Scale Mining Representative and PMRB Ifugao member, Engr. Manuel B. Maguiwe, Jr., reviewed, deliberated and endorsed one quarry permit application and seven new and three for renewal commercial sand and gravel (CSAG) permit applications to the Office of the Provincial Governor during the third quarter PMRB meeting at the Senior Citizen’s Building of Ifugao Provincial Capitol, Lagawe, Ifugao on September 03, 2020.
Presently, there are 36 pending CSAG applications in the areas of responsibility of the CENRO-Lamut and CENRO-Alfonso Lista. The legalization of these aggregate extraction activities will not only increase the revenue of the concerned local government units, but also assist the Bureau's efforts in the campaign against illegal mining and the enforcement of environmental law.
