Delta Minerals AB is a public Swedish limited company listed on AktieTorget with rights to pursue environmental projects in the Philippines with the support of regional/local authorities. The company's objective is to commence operations in estuaries in the North West/Northern Philippines for the extraction of minerals and sand
The company's operations
Chahaya Shipping & Trading Co. PTE LTD and Delta Minerals have signed a partnership agreement in April 2016 to increase sand volumes to about 1 million ton annually. Chahaya is a shipping and trading company, handling shipping and sale of reclamation sand to the government of Singapore.
In conjunction to the negotiations, Delta Minerals presented a Master Plan for Chahaya, to ensure the above deliverables. The plan describes how Panamax vessels will be loaded outside the Cagayan River mouth. Delta Minerals will also store the reclamation sand at the mouth close to the anchorage ground.
The expansion to deliver 1 million tons reclamation sand per year now commences. Chahaya is presenting the company plans for purchasers in Singapore. Request for quotation for sand deliveries are made on an ongoing basis, so we are likely to soon face deliveries.
The company has worked intensively in recent months to complete the Master Plan. Gauging the river mouth have been pursued, planning detailed logistics. An island in the river mouth will be used for stockpiling reclamation sand close to anchorage ground for the large Panamax vessels. A large area of sand storage on the eastern side has also been identified. Initially we will have slightly higher costs, but as the logistics is expanding, the business will become more cost efficient.
The cost of commencing the operations have significantly been reduced relative to the company assessment, made in autumn 2015. The initial dredging costs have been reduced, due to favorable bathymetric studies. By starting with modular plants, even the initial costs have been reduced.
Delta Minerals is one of the few companies in the Philippines, having all the necessary permits for reclamation sand and the company is strategically located in the Philippines. Other countries in the region have been interested in Delta Minerals´ products and business concept, and we have great expectations that potential customers project will be further developed.
In conjunction with the Chahaya partner agreement, the company has pursued out a rights issue to ensure that Delta Minerals will be well funded to respond to the Chahaya´s increased demand.
The downward trend of iron ore price now seems to have reversed and the last few months in the spring of 2016, the price has increased sharply to more normal levels. The company has since the fall of 2015 received advances from the main customer SunGlobe.
Social and ecological work
In addition to the works that we have been able to contribute, Delta Minerals is contributing to equip a local school. This has been made with construction materials that the company has been manufacturing and our support. We have also been supporting a hospital in Manila, run by the Catholic order; The Dominican Sisters of the Presentation.
In April 2016, the company was awarded the prize as the best CRS project (Corporate Social Responsibility) among the Nordic Business Council members in the Philippines.
The interest of the company has increased significantly and the number of shareholders has increased to 5800. The large number of shareholders allows for a powerful work in the Philippines.
Delta Minerals´ rights issue was oversubscribed by 13.3 MSEK and was signed to 183 percent. 17.9 MSEK was added to the company through this issue. In total, investors for more than 29 MSEKwere interested to in participate in the share issue. The Board has also pursued a directed equity issue of additional 2.2 MSEK.
