By 2pm we arrived in Camp John Hay Trade and Cultural Center in Baguio City to witness the 66th Annual National Mine Safety and Environment Conference (ANMSEC). I saw several Mining equipment including the drones that cost around 2.5m to 4.5 million peso used for survey and mapping.

As well as hi tech industrial equipment used to build great home and cities. Imagine those finest Jewelry, great house, buildings and roads which cannot be completed without the involvement of the mining industry.


The next day is we did the early morning sports fest in Baguio Athletic Bowl. They called it Palarong Minero. A team building kind of games to different students that involves critical thinking and teamwork to every students members involve.

Then proceeded back to City Travel Hotel fro Breakfast and the most important part of the tour. Which is the YAMAN Luncheon Forum in which they invited the expert speakers to share their knowledge to these future mining professionals.
