It was a few years ago when we took these pictures in the gold mining village of Gango, which is part of Libona in Bukidnon province, in Northern Mindanao.
As the crow flies, Gango is a few kilometres from our house in Cugman.
This gold mining town is located behind Cagayan de Oro City and can be reached on foot from the barangays of Gusa, Cugman or Indahag.
We came into contact with the chairman of the gold prospectors’ cooperative during our visit, and he showed us some tunnels.
We visited this place again and this time found entry to the neighbouring tunnels. I was able to capture all this in a video, with the camera also going underground.
