 The mining engineers and geologists of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. VIII (MGBRO8) attended the (Philippine Mineral Reporting Code) PMRC 199 Technical Seminar spearheaded by the Philippine Society of Mining Engineers (PSEM) on September 30, 2021.

The aim of the webinar is to present three (3) papers on slope stability in mining with the objectives, among others, of explaining the ground control engineering and analytical procedures of designing and applying methods of mitigation by way of constructing effectively functioning and least costly engineering control structures to address potential impacts of hazards and risks due to excavation and the new Global International Standard on Tailings Management (GISTM).

The attendance of the mining engineers and geologists of MGBRO8 is apt to enhance the knowledge and skills of the technical personnel of this Office and to keep them abreast of the recent developments in the mining community.
