We currently operate from offices in Makati City in Manila, in General Santos and Digos cities and in the municipalities of Tampakan, Columbio, and Kiblawan. We currently employ about 64 people and around 100 contractors.

Indophil Resources NL, an Australian publicly listed company, and the Tampakan Group of Companies, incorporated in the Philippines, have had a long involvement in the exploration of the Project.
