Philippines EITI Scoping Study On Small-Scale Metallic Mining

This study provides the contextual information on small-scale metallic mining that was included in the second Philippine Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative Country Report in December 2015. It particularly focuses on the legal and regulatory framework and the revenue streams as well as the general state of small-scale mining operations of gold, silver and chromite in the Philippines. The report also provides recommendations to the Philippine EITI Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) on how to approach the reporting of payments from this sector, considering the current state of available data from government offices and the gaps in the regulation of the small-scale metallic mining industry.
