PGMC is one of the first to implement temporary revegetation, based on the government’s call to promote a sustainable environment in mining operations, through the establishment of grass and shrub plantation in all inactive mining areas.
The company set its sights to temporarily revegetate 47 hectares located in CAGA 2 and CAGA 4 using grasses, vines, shrubs, and other leguminous plants within 2018 on top of it's Annual Mined-Out Rehabilitation commitment of 60.0 hectares. This will result to erosion prevention, aesthetics improvement and reduction of carbon footprint.
Mines helping minds
PGMC believes that quality education is the best tool to fight poverty.
That is why we maintain a program that awards scholarships and other forms of aid to deserving students, including those who are members of the indigenous groups. These scholarships and other forms of aid include payment of tuition, stipend allowances and provision of school supplies and uniforms.
Education projects also involve the improvement of school facilities, provision of educational materials teachers’ training programs, and payment of teachers’ honoraria.
At our Cagdianao Mine, we have constructed a seven school building, a library, and one (1) atrium for the community.
The school provides free education and school materials to about 521 students from barangays cagdianao and hayanggabon. communities.
In addition, we provide assistance under the Alternative Learning System project, an accredited program under the Department of Education. The company also provides salaries for six teachers who work with public schools in the communities where our Cagdianao Mine is located. Along with these programs, we have also initiated school-to-school campaign promoting knowledge in mining and sponsorship for inter-school educational competitions.
