List of Existing Permits for Marine Sand Quarry in the Philippines

Requested from PRA by C. Seso at 09:19 PM on Dec 02, 2021.
Purpose: Personal research - to check whether all existing marine sand quarries have a complete set of permits.
Date of Coverage: 12/02/2021 - 12/02/2021
Tracking no: #PRA-583371938268

Seso 09:19 PM, Dec 02, 2021

Hi, 

Good day!

This is to request from your good office a complete list of all ongoing marine sand quarries in the Philippines and their corresponding locations, operators, and licenses/ permits information (date of approval, date of expiration, approved quantity of quarry/ extent of quarry). 

This research is personal and not school-sanctioned work. With the increasing number of reclamation projects all over the Philippines, the requestor, and the public is getting concerned about where these reclaimed materials will be coming from. 

I hope that you find this request acceptable.
