This study presents the findings from assessing the extent of implementation of Social Development and Management Program (SDMP) by the mining companies and their impact to the multi-sector group in CarCanMadCarLan (CCMCL). This study employed the descriptive research design where quantitative data gathered through a questionnaire was substantiated with qualitative data gathered through interviews. The participants chosen were representatives from the different social, economic, health, education, and environment sectors. Data were analyzed using frequency count and percentage distribution, mean and standard deviation, t-test, analysis of variance and Tukey?s HSD Test. The findings demonstrated that among the five multi-sectoral groups, Education Sector received the highest mean while Environment Sector obtained the least in the assessment of SDMP implementation and its perceived impact. The study concludes that mining operations in CarCanMadCarLan leave positive and negative impacts. This can be attributed to the extent of implementation of SDMP, which cannot be considered as par excellent.
