Engr. Rodante B. Felina discussing the context of Responsible Mining to the Senior High School students of Lugait National High School

More than one hundred students participated with the said activity. The presentation was given by Mr. Rodante B. Felina, the chief of Mine Safety, Environment and Social Development Division, about “Responsible Mining Awareness.”


The activity started with an ice breaker where students were more than game as they danced and laughed following the video showed on the screen. After which, Engr. Rodante B. Felina started his presentation.
