Philippines gold mine shuttered over pollution concern
The Philippines' largest mining company has suspended operations at its northern gold mine after waste leaked from a storage pond.
Philex Mining Corp. vice president Michael Toledo said Friday the discharge came after two recent typhoons that caused an "unusual accumulation" of rainwater in the tailings pond of its Padcal Mine in Benguet province.
