Company Awards

We take pride in having won a number of awards for operating the safest surface mines in the Philippines.

In addition to other awards, our operating companies have been recognized with numerous Presidential Mineral Industry Environmental Awards. This annual award was established under a Presidential Executive Order issued in 1997, pursuant to which all mines and exploration companies must undergo an evaluation process by a selection committee headed by the Secretary of the DENR. Our operating companies and personnel consistently feature prominently in these awards and have been the recipients of the highest award, the "PMIEA".
