Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda said earnings from quarrying of sand, ash and lahar from the 1991 Pinatubo eruption had reached almost P300 million over a five-month period even during quarantine.

The governor posted on Facebook an image titled “Buhangin ng Pinatubo, Parang Ginto sa Kapampangan.”

“Nang pumutok ang Bulkang Pinatubo noon June 15, 1991, pahirap ang dala sa atin ng abo at buhangin, pati lahar sa mga sumunod na taon,” Pineda recalled.

“Sinong mag-aakala na yung nagpahirap sa atin, naglibing sa maraming baryo at bukid ay magdadala ng biyaya sa atin?” he said.

Pineda said earnings from quarrying had reached a sizable amount.

“Ang quarry collections po natin sa nakaraang 5 buwan simula Mayo na naka-MGCQ ang Pampanga ay P289.6 million,” he said.

“Ang kita mula sa quarry ay ginagamit natin na pandagdag pondo para sa pagkontrol sa pagkalat ng Covid-19 at paggaling ng mga pasyente, pati ibang programa ng Capitol,” Pineda said.
