The said launch was highlighted by the Keynote Speech of DENR Secrtary Roy A. Cimatu, which was delivered on his behalf by Undersecretary Analiza R. Teh. The speech mentioned the importance of the #MineResponsibility campaign in addressing the negative perceptions about the mining industry.

On the other hand, MGB Director Atty. Wilfredo Moncano stressed that the said campaign aims to help present a clearer and more factual image of the mining industry in the country and hopes to promote an inclusive approach in ensuring the protection of the environment and also emphasized the importance of having the public informed and involved.

Mr. Jose Bayani Baylon of Nickel Asia Corporation, representing the mining industry emphasized in his message that responsible mining is not only possible, but that, it is real and is happening as exemplified by a lot of mining companies in the country.

The main highlight of the launch was the presentation of videos/documentary films entitled, “Kutsara” (infomercial), “Minsan Kitang Minahan” (online ad) and “Biyaya ng Lupa” – all showing the importance and the role that mining play especially in the modern times and with the advent of modern technoloy.
