    Alternative Learning System (ALS) Building Groundbreaking

    The King-king Copper-Gold Project (KCGP) recently facilitated the groundbreaking ceremony for the proposed multi-purpose building of the Alternative Learning System (ALS) Pantukan District, an informal educational system for out-of-school youths and individuals who failed to finish formal education.

    Clyde Gillespie, Director for Environmental Permitting of St. Augustine Gold & Copper Ltd. (SAGCL) and Rogelio “Jing” Bantayan – Community Social Responsibility Head of SAGCL attended the event. Also present is Brgy. Capt. Roberto Yugo of Brgy. Kingking; Ms. Carmen Agustin, DepEd District Supervisor; Mr. David Vismanos, ALS District Coordinator and the elementary teachers from all over Pantukan.

    “This donation is part of the continuing effort of SAGCL’s ongoing commitment to support the education sector of the Pantukan community” said Mr. Gillespie. In the past, KCGP has also provided school facilities to Pantukan’s schools.

    KCGP is currently studying the feasibility of mining the Kingking gold and copper deposit in Pantukan. In connection with this, they are conducting extensive environmental research, community consultations, exploratory drillings and other related studies within the area.
