SURIGAO DEL SUR—Officials here declared that Cantilan is a “no mining” town of this province, as an estimated 1,000 people staged a 4-kilometer march on Monday to condemn the entry of two mining firms in the locality.

Speaking at a rally in the town plaza, Cantilan Mayor Tomasa Guardo told protesters that “as long as I am the mayor, no mining will ever be approved in this municipality.”

The Sangguniang Bayan of Cantilan, led by Cantilan Vice Mayor Rosa Carreos, earlier approved an ordinance opposing the entry of the Marcventures Mining and Development Corp.
