Government officials are trying to avert a “gold rush” in a remote barangay in Siaton, Negros Oriental.
This was after the reported presence of raw gold traces in the area that could attract the attention of enterprising businessmen or individuals who could endanger the lives of small-scale miners.
Gov. Roel Degamo and Siaton Mayor Albert Ator announced Wednesday the suspension of illegal quarrying operations at the “placer deposit” site in Siaton to prevent loss of lives as in the January 5, mining disaster in Compostela Valley.
