"Mining in the Philippines – Mining or Food?" report & company responses/non-responses

In February 2009, Robert Goodland and Clive Wicks of the Working Group on Mining in the Philippines - Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility, issued a report, “Mining in the Philippines – Mining or Food?” The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the principal mining companies named in the report to respond to the report and related news stories... - Asiaticus Management Corp. (AMCOR)... We attempted to contact AMCOR to invite it to respond, but were unable to find any contact information for the company [company responses from BHP Billiton, Freeport-McMoRan, Intex Resources, Pelican Resources, Philex Gold, Sagittarius Mines Inc. (SMI)/Xstrata (for themselves & on behalf of Xstrata/SMI's project partner Indophil), TVI Pacific]
