Bonao, Dominican Republic.- The Committee for Miranda and the Monseñor Noel Development organization announced a march to support mining at Loma Miranda, aimed at creating jobs and the province’s development.

Organization spokesman Ivan Santana said the protest tomorrow Tuesday will start in downtown Bonao near the Duarte Highway, and affirmed having the support of the city’s entire population.

He said they support Xstrata Nickel Falcondo’s continuing operations, “which has a more than 50-year history of work and development in the Dominican Republic.”

Santana added that the demonstration seeks to show the country the true technical, scientific and sustainable conditions to mine Miranda. “There are those who attack the project, lying to the people about environmental, hydrological conditions and species that the area doesn’t possess.”

People have been spoken about Loma Miranda over and over..The nest of more than a dozen rivers...

The environmental impact would be a real disaster to the Bonao community..Not to mention that they bring their own miners like the Peruvians in Barrick Gold..

People shouldn't be that naive..
