Delta Minerals project in the Philippines
In large river basins occurs frequently flooding, especially during monsoon season, which seriously impact the population in these areas with fatal accidents and large property damages due to the eroded and accumulated sand. By removing excess sand Delta Minerals activities are contributing to important environmental and social activities. The magnetite is extracted from the sand and sold to the steel industry.

Delta Minerals AB has developed well during the time the company has been in operation. We have shown at economically viable extraction levels of minerals in the rivers, which we are interested in, we have expanded our survey areas, which now include Cagayan province in the Northern Republic of the Philippines. We have established an agreement with NOVA; a Korean group to operate their facility in Appari in Cagayan province.
