RESIDENTS of Manicani island in Guiuan town planted about 100 assorted seedlings of native trees in order to rehabilitate the areas that have been denuded by years of mining operation of Hinatuan Mining Corporation (HMC). Led by the women and children of Protect Manicani Island Society, Inc. (PROMISI) local residents from the 4 barangays of Manicani island converged along the HMC stockpiles in Barangay Buenavista on February 10, 2018. The mining operations of HMC was suspended by DENR in 2002 and its application for renewal of the Mineral Production Sharing Agreement (MPSA) was turned down by DENR after its suspended MPSA expired in October last year.
