Intex, mining sector upbeat after election May. 20, 2013 The generally peaceful mid-term election bodes well for the mining industry, industry experts believe, even  as the sector eagerly awaited the action of Malacañang to resolve contentious issues pertaining to mining reforms as embodied in Executive Order 79. The industry is banking on the government’s promise to finally come up with lasting solutions that will finally release the potential of mining as a huge revenue contributor to the government coffers. In the meantime, mining companies such as Norway’s Intex Resources ASA, which is developing the Mindoro Nickel Project, continues to make a difference in terms of corporate social responsibility. Its CSR scorecard this year has tremendously increased as its Leaf project marks 130 hectares of tree and agro- forestry plantations for the second quarter of this year—23 water systems installed in different barangays providing potable water to a total of 16,500 household beneficiaries in 23 host and impact communities. These milestones were what made this year’s Earth Day meaningful to Mindoro townsfolk as it was celebrated with three other major events in cooperation with more than 1,500 members of the Alyansa Laan sa Kaunlaran at Kalikasan, Laban sa Kahirapan in Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro.
