MetadataShow full item record
Two major mining firms that comprise the Masbate Gold Project have begun installing 400 to 800 reef balls in a fishing and mining town in Masbate, in a bid to help regenerate new reef covers. The coral reefs had been severely damaged by past destructive and illegal fishing activities in the area, officials of the two firms said. MGP member-firms Filminera Resources Corp. and Phil. Gold Processing and Refining Corp. installed reef balls in Colorada Point in Barangay Tigbao, Aroroy in the province.
