Not so soon: Mining audit results out by 2018 the earliest


The audit process will stretch on to a year.

The Mining Industry Coordinating Council (MICC)’s review will be kicking off sometime late 2017, which is several months after former Environment Secretary Gina Lopez ordered the conduct of a thorough audit of 26 sites all over the country.

Despite delays, the MICC said the “fact-finding and science-based” investigations of the 26 closed or suspended mines under Lopez will be done meticulously by experts divided into technical teams.

Initial audit results are expected by January 2018, with the final reports due March next year.

The review will be a regular thing every two years, according to Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III.
