Examples of Mining Act in a sentence
In the present case, the allegation by Agham that two laws – the Revised Forestry Code, as amended, and the Philippine Mining Act – were violated by LAMI was not adequately substantiated by Agham.
Further, petitioner adds that after filing its Verified Return dated 21 June 2012, Agham never mentioned again the alleged violation of the Revised Forestry Code, as amended, and the Philippine Mining Act.
Dan Fernandez, a member of the Committee on Ecology of the House of Representatives, passed House Resolution No. 117 (HR 117) entitled “Resolution Directing the Committee on Ecology to Conduct an Inquiry, in Aid of Legislation, on the Implementation of Republic Act No. 7942, Otherwise Known as the Philippine Mining Act of 1995, Particularly on the Adverse Effects of Mining on the Environment.” HR 117 was issued in order to conduct an alleged ocular inspection of the port site in aid of legislation.
Agham alleged that LAMI violated: (1) Section 6823 of PD No. 705,24 as amended by Executive Order No. 277,25 or the Revised Forestry Code; and (2) Sections 5726 and 6927 of Republic Act No. 7942,28 or the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 (Philippine Mining Act).
Agham simply submitted a picture taken on 4 June 2012 where allegedly the backhoes owned by LAMI were pushing the remnants of the mountain to the sea.This explanation, absent any concrete proof, is untenable.Clearly, Agham did not give proper justifications for citing Sections 57 and 69 of the Philippine Mining Act.
