    Taganito Mining Corp. (TMC) recently launched DiSCUBA, a program that aims to get more people in the mining community of Claver and adjacent towns in Surigao del Norte to experience and appreciate diving.

    TMC, a subsidiary of Nickel Asia Corp. (NAC), encourages more people to become environment warriors – protector of the environment especially of the marine resources around the mine site.

    DiSCUBA, a portmanteau of discover and scuba, was launched to bring more people to see the underwater beauty around the mine site.

    The pilot program will first have TMC employees as participants and will be opened to the community by January

    TMC has adopted the Malingin islet, some 791 meters from the wharf .of TMC and about 1,234 meters or 1.2-kilometers from the mouth of Taganito river.
