Authorities of Phu Yen Province in south-central Vietnam have imposed a VND1 billion (US$42,700) fine on Tu Mai Construction – Trading Joint Stock Company for administrative violations in mineral extraction.

On May 22, officials in Song Hinh District and Duc Binh Tay Commune inspected the area at the foot of Hon Giang Mountain and discovered signs of illegal stone mining on a ​​0.2ha land lot.

At the working session, Dang Duc Tu, chairman of Tu Mai Company, admitted that from April 28 to May 19, this company illegally quarried granite in the area, scooping up the amount of buried stone.

The mining company does not have an operation license issued by a designated agency.

Furthermore, the company was found to have concealed its equipment to cover up its violations.

In addition to the fine, Tu Mai Company also had its mining site and quarrying equipment confiscated and was ordered to restore the environment of the exploited area, bringing the mining area to a safe state.

The time limit for implementing remedial measures is 10 days from the date Tu Mai Company received the punishment decision.
