According to the investigators, the minerals mined was transported without any mining permit. This resulted in charging criminal act against Gungob and to others; Glecerio Galo, Leonardo Capao, Joeboy Dayon, Juanito Gerundio, Beda Comeso, Nicarter Yray, and Dionito Mangilaya. Filing of the case will be made in the Sandiganbayan for violating the Philippine Mining Act of 1995.
