By: Philippine Resources August 30, 2022


In recognition of its commitment to promoting disaster preparedness and response, Taganito Mining Corporation was hailed as winner of the 2022 Regional Gawad KALASAG Search for Excellence in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management and Humanitarian Assistance under Best Private Organization Category.

TMC also received the 1st Gawad KALASAG Seal 2022 award under Special Recognition Category.

The award was conferred during the National Disaster Resilience Month Culmination Program of the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council at the Office of Civil Defense Caraga in Butuan City.

Gawad KALASAG stands for “Kalamidad at Sakuna Labanan, Sariling Galing ang Kaligtasan,” a fully institutionalized program of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

The annual recognition serves as avenue to promote awareness on best practices in the field of DRRM and humanitarian response and action.

The audits acknowledged TMC's contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic and after the onslaught of super typhoon Odette.

TMC’s notable interventions during the pandemic include the procurement of Php 15.6 million worth of vaccines for the municipality of Claver, along with other medical equipment and supplies.

TMC also conducted relief and recovery operations within and beyond its host community after the typhoon last December.

On behalf of TMC, the award was received by Engr. Cherry May C. Gabunada, Safety Manager along with Engr. Rommel R. Urbiztondo, Safety Section Head, and Engr. Iren Mae P. Ercillo, Safety Engineer.

“TMC has a corporate social responsibility not just to the communities where we operate, but even beyond, where we extend our resources to those in need,” shared Engr. Gabunada.

“This is the third time we are receiving this award and it is a testament of TMC’s commitment to extend assistance beyond our borders. More than ever, these critical times call for the bayanihan spirit of all stakeholders; and our manpower, through our Emergency Response Team, is always at your service,” said Engr. Artemio E. Valeroso, TMC Resident Mine Manager.
