    Pakatapos sirain ang Pilipinas, sana at least tayong mga ordinaryong Pilipino ang nakikinabang, eh sino po kaya ang yumayaman…sa history ng mining sa Pilipinas, wala pang lugar na minina na yumaman…not even the so called Philex communities, kasi ordinaryong pamumuhay pa rin sila ngayon, kahit ganito na kalaki ang kinikita nung mina nila…
