OceanaGold appeal scheduled for Sept 18

Gold miner OceanaGold Corporation will face the Court of Appeals, in Manila, on September 18 for a hearing on a preliminary injunction as part of the company’s appeal against the Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Court ruling denying the miner’s request to end a restraint of operations at the Didipio mine.

Since the start of July this year, local government units from the Province of Nueva Vizcaya have impeded access to and from the Didipio mine site, in response to a directive from the Governor to ‘restrain any operations’ from OceanaGold.
