As part of the continuous effort to attain a wider reach of audience in the dissemination of information on mining and geohazard in the region, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) Region XII activated its radio program at DXKI, Koronadal City.

The radio program entitled “Gabay sa Pagmimina” highlights the laws, policies and programs implemented by the bureau. Likewise, news about mining in the region will be aired in the program. It also encurages the listeners to send queries on mining and geohazard related issues and concerns in their area or in other areas via the hotline number provided by the office.

The initial program of MGB XII was undertaken on March 7 with regional director Constancio A. Paye, Jr. and the division chiefs as guests. As initial offering, the bureau’s mandate and the services provided to the public were tackled in the program.

The radio program’s overall goal is to provide the public with correct and accurate information and to impart deeper understanding on what mining really is and the processes and laws being implemented by the bureau. The program is airing every Tuesday at 4 to 4:30 in the afternoon at DXKI at 1062 kHz.
