    Pinatubo Aetas resist Shuley Mine Inc mining project

    A mining firm met strong opposition from Aetas who attended the first public consultation that the company held on Saturday for an environmental impact assessment (EIA) of its copper, gold and silver extraction project within the tribe's ancestral domain in Barangay Camias here.
