Mining firm achieves high rehabilitation rate

Using world-class technologies, OceanaGold (Philippines), Inc. group of Foresters continually puts forward the Company’s reforestation and rehabilitation projects. The mine has already planted more than 1.6 million trees in its rehabilitation areas within the Didipio Mine including reforestation plantations in the provinces of Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino. The reforestation survival rate is an impressive 92%, above the Philippine national standard of 80%.

The Didipio Mine’s Environment Team utilizes macrosomatic clonal propagation to produce various species of trees faster and more efficient than conventional planting. It produces approximately 500,000 seedlings in a year hence the Company’s partnership with different organizations and individuals in tree planting activities. Through the Mining Forest Program, OceanaGold has reforested a total area of more than 1,258 hectares in Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino.
