ATLAS MINING TODAY

I arrived sa Cebu last May 27 (Wednesday), mga six days ahead of my departure for Olutanga Island, Zamboanga Sibugay. I stayed at the SVD Provincialate and gi-welcome ko sa mga kasama nako na mga pari didto (Omg! What’s happening to my sentence construction! Halu-halong English, Tagalog, Bisaya na!).

Road to Atlas Mining

Ang aking good friend since college na si Joesard Ababa , xvd invited me the other day to go with him sa Atlas Mining sa Toledo City. Go naman ako.

Atlas Mining is a firm primarily engaged in mineral and metal mining exploration.  It has three open pit mines, three underground mines and milling complexes.

Look at that!

Atlas Mining’s Toledo mines used to be one of the largest mines in Asia and the third largest copper mine in the world, employing as many as 14,000 workers. It was, however, forced to close in 1994 when global prices of copper plunged.

Sarap ng Hangin Dito!

Today, binuksan na ulit ito…Actually, maganda ang lugar. The mountains surrounding the mining area can be compared to the beautiful mountains of Hongkong (yong maraming cable car!).

    • hehehe glad to know. ang utol ko kasi ay bs mining ang course kasi may western mining sa amin sa kiblawan, davao del sur…kami rin na mga svd ay may mga parishes na malapit sa mining areas — semirara sa romblon at ung isa pang mining din sa rio tuba sa palawan…

  1. huwaw, patravel travel ka na lang pala! er, bagong punta ko lang pala dito! hehe.

    gusto ko rin makapunta sa iba’t ibang lugar.. pati sa kalawakan!

  2. it’s nice to see the pictures of the company i used to work right after graduation. my work was with the special accounting group (SAG) under internal audit to monitor the importation needed for the Biga and Carment projects. during pay days, i sometimes go to the mining areas to bring the salaries of employees.

  3. goodluck sa olutanga. kinda bukid talaga siya but magpapari (pari?)ka naman so conducive ang environment para sa iyo. hehehe… may mga kakilala rin akong duktor doon. i hope you would enjoy being there kahit na ganun doon. alam naman nating sa buong pilipinas, ang mga taga-mindanao ang pinakanangangailangan ng tulong ispiritwal dahil sa dami ng mga krisis na pangpolitikal at pang-ekonomiya na kasalukuyang pinoproblema ng mga namumuhay dito.

  4. waaah! ang ganda naman ng lugar! ang sarap magpichur pichur! hakhak!
    buti pa po kayo at kung saan saan nakakarating! awwwooo!
    nature! nature nature!

  5. hai!kapoi anang mining dha oiszt!!!!!sana matigil na yan!!!!nakakasira kasi ng attitude ng mga tao….lalo na dun sa mga nakatrabaho!!!!!!tsaka nakakasira din sa mga punong-kahoy!!!!!!ang dami na tuloy alikabok sa kalsada…..ang sakit sa ilong….
