Zambales Magnetite Sand Project
The Philippine islands include 18 active volcanoes, and lie within the Pacific ‘rim of fire’, an orogenic belt associated with active ore-forming mineralisation. Three principal ore deposit types are associated with this volcanic arc environment – large-tonnage porphyry copper-gold deposits; disseminated and vein-type gold deposits, and volcanic sulphide deposits primarily constituting copper and gold. The Philippines has had a long and established history of mineral production and once ranked among the world’s top producers of chromite, copper, nickel gold and magnetite sand. According to various estimates, the Philippines hosts the world’s fifth-largest gold and copper reserves. However, at the end of 2006, the nation’s mining industry was valued at under US$2bn and accounted for less than 2% of GDP.
Ilocos Norte Nickel Project
The proposed contract area is located within the territorial jurisdiction of the Barangay Caangrian, Municipality of Pasuquin and Barangay Agaga, Municipality of Burgos, both in the Province of Ilocos Norte. With the phenomenal rise in the price of nickel and the enormous worldwide demand for nickel ore in laterites and sapprolites, the principal target of mineralization shall be nickel in the laterites within plateau areas of the tenements.
The Philippine Mining Act of 1995, has resulted in rising levels of mining development and exploration programmes throughout the nation. In 2004, the government unveiled the Mineral Action Plan (MAP), which identifies 24 large-scale mining projects. According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), these projects were expected to bring in US$4-6bn in investments and US$5-7bn in foreign exchange during 2004-2010. Mineral resources development has been identified by the government as an area of focus in the Medium-Term Philippine Development Plan, 2004-2010.
