This report discusses the history of Philex Mining Corporation and its ore body, which is the Sto. Thomas II and three main divisions of operation were tackled.</p> <p>In Mine Divisions, the paper focuses on the mine planning and design, development and production of the mine with some figures, tables and plans.</p> <p>In Geology Division, the district and regional setting of the ore body were presented with the help of cross-sections, figures and maps. It also comprises of lectures regarding the exploration, mineralogy and petrography, ore reserve, underground sampling and mapping, diamond drilling and core logging and engineering geology.</p> <p>In Metallurgical Division, the milling process undergone by the proper run of mine ore from the primary crusher up to its concentrate and how the valuable metal contained in the ore were treated to be able to separate from its gangue.</p> <p>PHILEX MINING CORPORATION</p> <p>6</p> <p>HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TRAINING</p> <p>To become green and responsible mineral extraction company is a greatest challenge to all mining companies here in the Philippines. This is to answer the challenge given by antimining organizations. Today is the best time for everyone in the mining industry to stand and open the mine of those one sided individuals.</p> <p>MINING, as one of the basic industry responsible for the development of the modern civilization, is also held as the prime mover that leads man to technology advancement.</p> <p>Since minerals, the basic raw materials for technological manufacturing, are nowhere to found, explorations and development have always been found.</p> <p>The prime purpose of this report is to acquire knowledge, information and skills in different aspects based on the actual observation on the daily activities in mining operation during the forty five days of training at Philex Mining Corporation. Through this training, the student trainee were exposed and became aware to all actual events that occur in the field and became motivated in pursuing the chosen careers.</p> <p>Having enough knowledge in mining operations and became exposed in one of the most known responsible mining company of the country, the trainees are assumed to be prepared on their role as one of the prime movers and good ambassador for green mining.</p> <p>This report aims to impart knowledge to the interested readers especially the Mining Engineering students who wish and plan to undergo their Summer Mine and Mill practice in Philex Mining Corporation.</p> <p>PHILEX MINING CORPORATION</p> <p>7</p> <p>INTRODUCTION</p> <p>Mine and Mill Practice is a pre-requisite subject in compliance in the Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering course. This 6-unit subject undertaking is offered every summer term intended to pre-senior student and served as the actual application of the theories learned from school for it to be more effective. Its prime purpose is to expose the students to the actual scenario of his/her profession.</p> <p>And so this year, eight (8) of the Cebu Institute of Technology - University Mining Engineering pre-senior students were sent to undergo their Mine and Mill practice at Philex Mining Corporation in Padcal, Tuba, Benguet, Philippines. Truly, Philex Mining Corporation is a gift of God, a work of Man, striving to become a world-class mineral extracting company.</p> <p>In order to share our experiences especially to the Mining Engineering students who have not yet undergo their practice, the students consolidated all they had learned about the company to generate this report. This is based on the students observations and evaluations during the actual operation. This report will serve as guide to the succeeding trainees.</p> <p>PHILEX MINING CORPORATION</p> <p>8</p> <p>GENERAL TRAINING SCHEDULE</p> <p>Area / Activity Processing of Papers Policy Orientation a.
