Shows mining concessions, groundwater vulnerability, and watersheds in the Philippines. From site: "A significant portion of mining concessions in the Philippines is located in areas of high vulnerability for groundwater resources, including aquifer recharge zones, which could be negatively affected by mining. About 8 percent of mining concessions overlap proclaimed watersheds (forest areas protected by law ot maintain groundwater quality and yield), where mining is prohibited."
