Banawe Rice Terraces in Ifugao, which have been damaged by typhoons,

said.

Brimo said the criticism was unfounded, as large-scale miners have
been cautiously conducting their operations in accordance with the
Mining Law. He said the critics failed to distinguish between
large-scale and small-scale mining operations.
