The Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in the province stopped an alleged treasure hunting activity along Culili Point at Brgy. Masintoc in this town. Upon verification by concerned authorities, the document presented by the treasure hunters appears to be fictitious and there was also no signage at the excavation area. The DENR also noted that the land classification is a timberland which means the hunters illegally occupied it, hence, violating Section 79 of Presidential Decree 705 otherwise known as the Forestry Code of the Philippines. The amount of estimated damage has yet to be determined by the DENR personnel.
