PRRD prepares EO vs. open-pit mining

President Rodrigo Duterte will soon prohibit open-pit mining possibly through the issuance of an executive order, Malacañang said on Thursday.

"He has said it before – he will soon prohibit open-pit mining. I don’t know when but I guess when the Executive Order for this is prepared," Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a press conference in Ipil, Zambaonga Sibugay.
