El Salvador mining ban could be precedent

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

On March 29, the Legislative Assembly of El Salvador passed what activists are hailing as a “landmark” law that essentially bans all forms metallic mining in the small Central American country.

Mining has obviously become a very contentious issue in the Philippines of late, and perhaps El Salvador’s action can provide some guidance for the Asian country.
