Antamok Mines in Itogon, Benguet circa 1937

Itogon is a mining town, being the site of the first large-scale mining operations in the country.

It is the largest municipality in Benguet by land area. Mining operations started in Itogon in 1903, after Benguet Corporation, the Philippines' first mining firm, was established in the town under the name Benguet Consolidated Mining Company (BCMC) by Americans Nelson Peterson and Harry Clyde.

Benguet Caretaker Eric Go Yap rushed to hospital

Benguet's caretaker Rep. Eric Go Yap was rushed to a hospital in Benguet before dawn Saturday after feeling discomfort, his chief-of-staff Kevin See said.

He was rushed to the Benguet General Hospital after collapsing at around 3 a.m., See told.

"Around 3:30 a.m., sobrang namumutla siya and bagsak ang katawan and in discomfort. He was also in discomfort," See said.

In a Facebook post, Yap assured and thanked the public for their support and prayers.

Maraming maraming salamat po sa lahat ng nagdasal, tumawag, at nagparating ng mensahe sa atin nang mapabalita na tayo ay dinala sa Benguet General Hospital kaninang umaga.

Tayo po ay sumailalim sa iba't ibang tests at tayo po ay cleared sa anumang seryosong karamdaman ayon sa Benguet General Hospital. Ngunit naging malaking factor ng biglaang paghina ng aking katawan ang fatigue, stress at pati na rin ng pabago bagong panahon dito sa Benguet. Alas-3 ng madaling araw na rin natapos ang aming pulong kanina kasama ang aking team para talakayin ang mga susunod na programa ng aming tanggapan.

This is just temporary and I will be up and running again soon! Maraming salamat po sa inyong pagmamahal at higit lalong maraming salamat sa Poong Maykapal at tayo po ay cleared of any serious illness.
