Smokey Mountain

Smokey Mountain. Clouds of dust rise above a mining site for nickel ore operated by Taganito Mining Corp. (TMC) on Red Mountain in Claver, Surigao del Norte. The pollution has endangered the ecosystem of the area while residue from the operation has spoiled rivers as well as the sea near the site. The ore is loaded onto ships anchored offshore that will take it to Japan for processing.
