As part of the IEC campaign of the region in the promotion of responsible mining, the MGB-IX is continuously fostering partnership with various stakeholders, to include partnering with our mother department agency, the DENR-IX, whose IEC campaign efforts are intensified each time.

The Dalaw-Turo (DT) is an IEC strategy in order to generate awareness and advocacy among public and private high school students within the region. This is in pursuant to Republic Act No. 9512 or the " Act Promoting Environmental Education" and DepEd Order No. 72 Series of 2003, which mandates the establishment of the YES-O in all private and public elementary and secondary schools.

As part of the regular involvement of MGB-IX in the Dalaw-Turo session organized by the Regional Public Affairs Office (RPAO) of DENR-IX, Ma. Virna Baguio, SSRS, joined the DT Team once again in the conduct of IEC on DENR programs last November 13 and 14, 2017 in selected secondary schools in Pagadian City. This DT session is in line with environmental celebrations of the National Environment Month, National Clean-Air Month, National Climate Change Consciousness Week and the National Day for Youth in Climate Action, and is one of the many DT sessions undertaken this year.

Ms. Baguio gave lectures on the benefits of mining, giving emphasis to responsible mining and Geohazards awareness.
