Didipio mine project feasible
(ported from story by Ceasar M. Perante)

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya ? Pro-mining groups backing the Didipio gold-copper project located on the border of Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino are now jumping with joy after the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) approved the venture.

DENR ordered the approval of the Partial Declaration of Mining Project Feasibility (PDMF) for the Didipio gold-copper of the Australasian Philippines Mining Inc. (APMI).

In a belated copy of the order obtained by Manila Bulletin, which Environment Secretary Michael Defensor approved on October 11, 2005, the PDMF of the Didipio gold-copper project has been issued subject to four conditions.

The first condition orders that the mining operations shall confine within the project area as stipulated in Condition No.1 of the Revised Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) dated August 6, 2004.

Any increase in the production output and coverage area in the succeeding years of the mining operations under the FTAA, shall be subject to amendment of the said ECC pursuant to the Environmental Impact Statement System (EISS).

In the implementation of the project, APMI shall ensure that the contractual obligations under the FTAA are fully complied with, including the reporting requirement in accordance with the permanent provision of DENR Administrative Order No. 96-40.

The conduct of mining operation in the contract area subject of the PDMF shall undertake in accordance with existing applicable laws, their implementing rules, regulations and the permanent provisions of the FTAA.

Mineral exploration activities outside the 975-hectare portion of the contract area shall continue to pursue in accordance with the conditions governing the first renewal of the exploration period of the FTAA.

"This is a landmark event for our company, clearing the way for us to complete debt financing and concentrate offtake agreements," said Climax Mining Ltd. CEO Robert Thomson.

On June 20,1994 FTAA No.1 was executed between the President of the Republic of the Philippines (Fidel Ramos) and Climax Arimco Mining Corporation (CAMC) originally covering an area of 34,992 hectares located in Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino.

The FTAA intends for the rational exploration and possible development and commercial utilization of gold, copper and other associated mineral deposits that maybe found in the contract area.

Subsequently, CAMC transferred the FTAA to Australasian Philippines Mining Inc. (APMI) through an agreement it executed with the latter on December 23, 1996, as amended on September 15, 2004, which was approved by the DENR on December 9, 2004.

On March 18, 2005, APMI filed its Partial Declaration of Mining Project Feasibility in the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) Regional Office 2, covering 975 hectares of the remaining 21,429-hectare contract area for the proposed Dididpio gold-copper project under FTAA 001.

"Pursuant to the pertinent provisions of the DENR Administrative Order No. 96-40, as amended, the implementing rules and regulations of Republic Act N0. 7942, Philippine Mining Act of 1995 and the FTAA, APMI has complied with the requirements for the approval of a Declaration of Mining Project Feasibility," Defensor declared.

"While negotiations are underway, they can now be rapidly finalized. Looking beyond these agreements, we can now start detailed project design for Dinkidi as a precursor to bidding construction contracts," explained Thompson.

The Dinkidi hill, said to contain toms and upon tons of gold and copper ore deposits, straddles the disputed boundary of Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino.

Didipio project development manager Arnel Arrojo said the Dinkidi is expected to start production by the first quarter of 2007.

"The project is expected to produce about 158,000 oz /year of gold equivalent, comprising about 94,000 oz /year of gold and 10,000 metric tons /year in copper-in-concentrate," APMI senior geologist Chito Gozar projected.
