The Process Plant at Cagayan River

Delta Minerals has agreed with the Governor of the Cagayan province pursuing rights for studies and extraction of sand and minerals in Cagayan River.

The agreement gives the right to explore the Cagayan River from Magapit and upstream; also for the rivers Santa Ana, Abolog, Pamplona, Claveria and other tributaries. The company has initiated investigations in appropriate areas. Cagayan River is the largest river in the Philippines; located in northern Luzon. It has a catchment area of 27.281, km ² and a length of 520 kilometers, and flows in a northerly direction from its source in Nueva Vizcaya to the estuary in Babuyan channel in Aparri, Cagayan.

Cagayan River has over the year’s accumulated sand and sediment that has diminished the river's transport capacity. Although Cagayan is not very typhoon affected, the province is however often flooded when heavy rainfall occurs in upstream areas. Areas that are frequently flooded in the Cagayan River and its tributaries are 186 000 hectares and 52 villages. There are villages in the region with agricultural land particularly his. This has led to an unsustainable situation with frequent flooding with loss of life, livestock and crops.

Delta Minerals initially signed an agreement with Nova International, which is a Korean company, to act as operators for Nova's production plant at Cagayan River. This agreement has enabled Delta Minerals to develop a pilot production.

An optimal process for the extraction of minerals from the sand has been developed; the Delta Process. The same standard process will be used for the futures plants of Delta Minerals.

Through a pilot production, company is able at  fine-tune production and at the same time deliver finished products according to specifications and also magnetite of high quality.
