News: Mining industry to earn $2B this year, $10B a year by 2012

East Coast Mineral Resources Co. Inc. to be operated by Cagdianao Mining Corp., one for nickel, cobalt, chromite and iron development in Loreto, Dinagat Island, and another project involving the same minerals in Libjo, Dinagat Island.

Moves like those lately done by DENR are intended to persuade the Filipinos to invest in mining and awaken it from its decade-long slump. Industry players, especially the Chamber of Mines of the Philippines (CMP), have consistently reaffirmed its partnership with the government. Romualdez had once said that “mining done right can give the Philippine economy a much-needed boost, while providing the Filipino people tangible benefits through job generation and the trickle down effect of mining-related activities, like the construction of roads, schools and health centers at mining communities.” Read more...

More Motoracing Photos

Someone is asking where is the rest of the photos? I just said we were just waiting for the details. It’s just so frustrating Libjo is not that huge place that everyone knows everyone and here comes an event and nobody knows anything. No one knows who’s in the game. And not even the winner. All we know we have one entry from Libjo and that is Lordan Llamera Jr. in the beginner’s category. The rests are from Davao City, Surigao and some from Capital San Jose. Hint... click on the photos and look closely. You will notice people are watching the race on top of the roof and on trees. (Photos courtesy of Melody Llamera.)

Libjo Motocross Competition 2007

Where are all the people go? It’s fiesta day and nobody is in town. What happened here?
This is what happens when hosting a one of a kind event. Some sort of magnet, attraction gathers people to the place and nobody is left in the house to celebrate fiesta (I mean to prepare food and entertain guests.) Racetrack is located kilometer away from the downtown. So when the game started most of the people is in the race watching.

I talk about this before this is Habal-habal country. Kids even ladies knows how to ride a motorbike. That brings excitement to everyone if event like this happens.

The only thing is … Muthja is so busy she missed to get the names of the riders and who win the competition. (Photo by Melody Llamera)
