Samana, Dominican Republic.- Environment minister Bautista Rojas said Tuesday his agency will do with Loma Miranda what’s best for the Dominican Republic, but respecting everyone’s opinion.

The official’s statements comes in response to Mining agency director Alexander Medina, who yesterday said Xstrata Nickel Falcondo already has the authorization to mine and only awaits Environment’s permit to start extracting nickel and other metals.

"Our jurisdiction is the environment, we neither give concession nor pieces of land, or anything. There we will do what’s best for the Dominican Republic," the official said.

As to the environmental impact study, the official didn’t venture to estimate the time to conclude, there are terms of reference which his department has yet to issue.

Rojas spoke with a group of journalist at the Silver and Christmas Banks Marine Mammal Sanctuary, to observe the humpback whales in their yearly visit.

Exactly right !!!

Let do what is best for the Dominican Republic NOT for international interest.

If Xstrata want's nickel and gold from Loma Miranda,

and the damage to the environment is too high,

let Xstrat get their nickel in Cuba, or somewhere else.

The Dominican Republic and its noble people comes first !!

IRREVOCABLE AND DEFINITIVE SINCE 1929, TO INFINITY AND BEYOND !!
