Welcome to Indophil Resources NL
Indophil Resources NL is an Australian publicly-listed company, incorporated in 1996, to acquire, explore for and develop gold and copper-gold opportunities in the Philippines, elsewhere in South East Asia and broader horizons where opportunity exists to enhance and maximise shareholder value.
The Company's key asset is a strategic 37.5% interest in Sagittarius Mines, Inc. (SMI), the operating arm for the world-class Tampakan Copper-Gold Project in the southern Philippines in which Xstrata Queensland Limited (Xstrata Copper) holds a 62.5% interest and acts as project manager.
As the holder of a granted Financial and Technical assistance Agreement (the Columbio FTAA), SMI acts as contractor to the Philippines Government which owns the mineral rights to Tampakan and acts as a project partner on behalf of the people of the Philippines.
The Tampakan Project has a global resource of 2.94 billion tonnes containing an estimated 15 million tonnes of copper and 17.6 million ounces of gold at a 0.2% copper cut-off grade. At start up, targeted for 2019, the annual average rate of production over its first 17 years is estimated at 375,000 tonnes of copper and 360,000 ounces of gold. In the first five years, Tampakan is expected to produce 450,000 tonnes of copper and 435,000 ounces of gold annually.
Indophil has other interests in the Philippines - mainly in Northern Luzon (Itogon and Balatoc) and Eastern Mindanao (Manat).
