After the speeches of mining stakeholders in a conference in Makati came the heated question-and-answer segment. Pro- and anti-mining advocates debated on mining's impact on the Philippine economy and the environment. One heated exchange was between Gina Lopez, managing director of ABS-CBN Foundation and convenor of the Save Palawan Movement, and Manny Pangilinan, head of the country's biggest mining firm, Philex Mining Corp. -- Coco Alcuaz of ANC has the report.
