Philippines: New report alleges human rights & environmental violations by Australian-Canadian miner OceanaGold
A new report (linked below) by Robin Broad, John Cavanagh, Catherine Coumans, & Rico La Vina published by the Institute for Policy Studies (U.S.) & MiningWatch Canada concludes that OceanaGold's (an Australian-Canadian company) Didipio Gold and Copper Mine in the Philippines has had a significant negative impact on human rights and the environment. The authors urge non-renewal of the company's Financial and Technical Assistance Agreement (FTAA) which permits its mining operations and that the company be considered ineligible for additional exploration permits.
Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited OceanaGold to respond to the allegations. The company's response is linked below.
