The Pujada Nickel Project
The Pujada Nickel Project is one of the 23 priority mining projects that are part of the Philippine government's 2004 Minerals Action Plan intended to revitalize the Philippine mining industry and encourage foreign investment.
The Philippines has been identified as the 5th Most Mineralized Country in the world, and thus has the potential of attracting billions of dollars in capital investment. The Pujada Nickel Project has been declared one of the five mining projects that could boost the contribution of the mining sector to the economy of Davao Oriental with a potential capital investment of P540B.
The Pujada Nickel Project is located at the Northeastern section of the Pujada Peninsula and straddles the Barangays of Macambol and Cabuaya in the City of Mati, Davao Oriental. It is within the ancestral domain of the Mandaya Indigenous People who have given the company their Free and Prior Informed Consent following the process embodied in the RA 8371 or the Indigenous Peoples Right Act.
Mati is located 175 kms. to the East of Davao City, and base camp is 50 kms. from the Mati City Center.
Over the years we have been recognized by The Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association as the 2nd Safest Exploration Company in 2010 and 2011, and the country's Safest Exploration Company three years running from 2012 to 2014.
UNESCO Mt. Hamiguitan Project
In support of the environment and the UNESCO project, we have relinquished 7,200 hectares to adequately expand the Hamiguitan World Heritage Site. The Pajuda Nickel Project is located over 7 kms. away from the Mt. Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary.
