Volcano's Debris May Spark Industry

Associated Press

President Corazon Aquino's government on Sunday suggested making bricks, pendants and souvenirs from the tons of debris left by Mt. Pinatubo.

Her government is trying to find creative ways to use the ash, pumice and rocks that the volcano spewed out, presidential spokesman Tomas Gomez said.

"It's not a total loss. Somehow . . . we'll find a use," Gomez said.
