Katipunan Barangay Chairwoman Paz Maglangit (2nd from left) in Nabunturan, Compostela Valley reads the deed of assignment for the turnover of the land to the Department of Science and Technology Regional Office 11. The field testing for the Integrated Gold-Copper Mineral Processing Pilot Plant will be constructed in Brgy. Katipunan and is expected to benefit small scale miners in the area. The plant will use “green technology” which does away with toxic chemicals like cyanide and mercury. Awaiting the turnover are (left) Dr. Anthony C. Sales, DOST Region 11 director, and (right) Mr. and Mrs. Aniceto Bolifer, the landowners. (Text by Rodolfo P. de Guzman/Photo by Henry de Leon/S&T Media Service)
