Project Description: "Philex Mining Corporation located at Padcal Tuba, Benguet, Philippines is a dynamic company that stood tall for more than fifty years despite several problems. Although a lot of people are against mining, Philex held its ground and proved that mining is good if it is coupled with responsibility. The people behind this mining corporation are aware that they did nothing wrong. Yes, mining maybe blamed for some destructions in the environment, but Philex Mining Corporation practices responsible mining activities who abide by environmental laws and civil rights; This mining group try their very best to prevent adverse environmental problems. Lastly, they change the view that mining causes environmental degradation but instead, it promoted environmental awareness not only to their employees but to the whole community as well. Philex tries its very best to be eco-friendly by disposing their chemical residues properly and promote tree planting activities. Philex Mines has done a lot for Benguet. They contributed to the development of road works and they also provide free education, hospital services and other numerous contributions to the family around it.
The company lives by its core values – integrity, teamwork, respect, efficiency and lastly, social and ecological responsibility. With these values, Philex is not only able to produce precious metals but also great leaders.
The company is the biggest copper and gold production in the Philippines. Thus, the company reaches out to other countries and their companies to support them in their production. With this, Philex became an agent for business partnership among nations.
Behind these accomplishments of Philex Mines is a great leader Mr. Milton L. Agyao, whose life as a leader will be discussed in our website. He was a young man who believed that a small corporation then will grow into what Philex Mines is today. We provided his pains and gains as a leader and we hope that this website will motivate young leaders to dream and be able to unite people to come up with good organizations that can be of service to other people.
