DAVAO CITY — President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has accused mining companies of destroying the environment. Duterte warned the mining companies that they need to “shape up” or local investors would take over their concessions.


During his thanksgiving party at Crocodile Park last Saturday (04 June 2016), Duterte said that “They have to stop,” “Mining people must shape up. Most of what you do today, especially in Surigao, is dig holes. And they are destroying Mindanao,” he added.

Duterte said that e would have all Filipino mining workers organized into a cooperative as an alternative and “give them instructions on how not to end up spoiling the land.”

He also said that, “All the big mining companies who are destroying the environment, they have to stop,”


This was the reason he did not give the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) portfolio to Leoncio Evasco, his national campaign manager. Evasco, a former political detainee, was a city administrator when Duterte was mayor of Davao City.
