Illegal
• vast destruction that kills the environment (land and
aquatic)
• animals residing and depending on the area that has
been deforested. They usually leave the place
barren and polluted and
wasted.
The carbon output, erosion and
liquid-waste filled the place
killing all the habitants and
affecting the local community
once depending on the natural
resources.
Negative effects
• forcing them from their homes and land
• preventing them from accessing clean land and water
• impacting on their health and livelihoods
• causing divisions in communities over who benefits from
the mine and who doesn’t
• changing the social dynamics of a community
• exposing them to harassment by mine or government
security
The potential benefits that mining brings to a
community can be undermined if secrecy
surrounds the payment of mining taxes to the
government or the benefits shared at the
local level.
Awareness of the bad and
good impact of mining on
man and nature

#DigResponsibly
• Limit small scale mining industries
• Illegal mining should be banned in the country and also open
pit mining
• Rehabilitation should be carried out properly in the area where
the mining is located after the contract
• The DENR must ensure that the mining industry complies with
the mining policy
• Before they decided to mine a particular area, they must
consider some factors like, the mine site is far from people,
etc…
• If possible, DENR and the big mining corporation will work
together to achieve the so-called “Responsible mining”
