MANILA (Reuters) - A dozen more Philippine mines, mostly nickel projects, are in danger of being suspended in an ongoing environmental crackdown on the sector, an environment undersecretary said on Wednesday.
The audit committee recommended to halt the operations of 12 more mines because of environmental and legal violations, Environment Undersecretary Leo Jasareno told reporters.
"We will be ready with the final report on Monday," Jasareno said, adding that Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Regina Lopez will decide on the suspension.
