Macroasia to Restore Mining Operations
MANILA, Philippines – MacroAsia Corp. plans to spend $12.9 million to revive the mining industry’s business by developing its nickel mine in Palawan. In a filing with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB), MacroAsia said it is investigating the Infanta Nickel Project (INP), which was granted Mineral Production Sharing (MPSA) covering 1,113.98 hectares in the Municipality . of Brooke’s Point, Palawan.
Incorporated in 1970 as Infanta Mineral and Industrial Corp, MacroAsia is involved in exploration and development of land. INP mined nickel as a base metal as its main product and exported it to Japan at that time.
However, MacroAsia turned into a holding company in 1996 and is now involved in aviation-related sponsorship programs through its subsidiaries and affiliates. On July 29, 2021, MacroAsia Mining Corp. (MMC) of MacroAsia has signed a memorandum of understanding with Calmia Nickel Inc. (CNI) for research and mining operations that can operate the Infanta Nickel project.

In launching its mining operation, MacroAsia cited the uptrend in the nickel market based on the London Metal Exchange (LME) in the face of a changing global economy. “(MacroAsia) believes that the nickel market will recover and stabilize which will allow this project to continue and make INP’s production assets fully commercial,” he said.
The company plans to produce nickel ore – a mixture of laterite, saprolite and limonite, which will be sold in foreign markets, namely Japan, Australia and China. Initial estimates show that the project has a lifespan of about ten years, based on a projected resource of 10.818 million DMT. 카지노사이트
The company plans to mine an average of 10 hectares per year for 10 years. However, MacroAsia believes that the project has sufficient resources to support a mine life of more than 20 years and further exploration of the mining area.
The mine’s production is estimated at 660,000 dry metric tons (DMT) of ore per year, with one million metric tons (WMT) of ore at an average water content of 34%. This will help the company generate $56.79 million annually, MacroAsia said.
Of this gross revenue, the company estimates it must pay $2.27 million in average annual excise taxes and $8.05 million in average annual income taxes to the government. Currently, the government’s expected annual share – including taxes, income tax, and local government tax and debt – is about $10.89 million.

MacroAsia also said that the Brooke’s Point area will directly benefit in terms of community services and community development through the Social Development and Management Program (SDMP), costing $193,587 annually. He also called for a royalty payment of $567,000 – equivalent to one per cent of the project’s gross revenue – to local residents (IPs) around the affected areas.
