Pacific Mining Conference: Philippines Open For Business

By Richard Mills, Chairman

Chalre Associates

Download articleHeld recently in Manila, the 7th ASIA PACIFIC MINING CONFERENCE was possibly the largest such event in the region. Organized by the ASEAN Federation of Mining Associations (AFMA), it attracted many of Asia’s most prominent miners and mining organizations.

Charlie Sartain, CEO of XSTRATA COPPER, provided an interesting speech on his company’s recent progress toward world domination. Sartain’s most recent acquisition was the world-class Tampakan project in Philippines. With pre-feasibility estimates of 2 billion t of copper-gold ore, the project is the largest copper development in Xstrata’s portfolio and some say it will be the most significant in Asia. Copper, he explained, is arguably his company’s most important mineral since it alone accounts for 53% of Xstrata’s entire cash flow. (www.Xstrata.com)

The story of the development of the Tampakan project is one of great achievement in the face of extreme adversity. The original ownership entity called Indophil Resources was founded in 1996 by a fanatical Australian named Tony Robbins. It almost ceased to exist during the lean years, but Robbins endured personal hardship and plodded on. From an original market capitalization of just A$500,000 it has grown to A$300 million today. Indophil and its hard-driving boss’s success would not have been possible without dedicated government support. Most importantly, Tampakan will provide a 50-year economic benefit for the people of Philippines and will open the gates for investment by other world-class companies. 

Owen Hegarty, the high-flying CEO of OXIANA, gave what many considered the most enthusiastic performance of the three-day conference. He provided a riveting account of his company’s early beginnings in the late 1990s and its recent rise to stardom. With operations almost exclusively in Asia, Oxiana recently reported a profit of A$500 million. Over the past 10 years, Owen’s company has grown its market capitalization from A$20 million to A$5 billion. (www.Oxiana.com.au)

Mitch Hooke, CEO of the MINERALS COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA, spoke about his strong beliefs in the mining “super-cycle.” This theory says that demand for minerals will be strong for many years to come since countries in Asia with roughly half the world’s population are industrializing quickly. The super-cycle concept is treated with suspicion by many experienced industry watchers who have “seen it all before.” But, to people
in Asia who witness relentless economic growth taking place before their eyes, it is considered more like a force of nature. (www.Minerals.org.au)

Patrick Waters of ANGLO AMERICAN gave a persuasive presentation to document his belief that field exploration is the best path to value creation. His numerous examples in places such as Indonesia and Philippines showed investment returns that were beyond those obtainable through the high-priced acquisition route that seems more fashionable these days. (www.AngloAmerican.co.uk)

Lastly, Benjamin Romualdez, the extroverted president of the ASEAN FEDERATION OF MINING ASSOCIATIONS and the CHAMBER OF MINES OF THE PHILIPPINES, expressed strong opinions on continuing growth of the mining sector in Asia. Using his country (Philippines) as an example, he cited billion dollar investment intentions of such celebrity companies as BHP BILLITON, SUMITOMO METAL MINING and Xstrata. He predicted that mining industry dollar earnings could reach as high as $10 billion by 2012, up from just $2 billion today. Other countries in southeast Asia have similar growth opportunities ahead, according to Romualdez. (www.AfmaAsean.org and www.ChamberOfMines.com.ph)

While not everyone believes that such growth is possible, it is clear that most people in Asia feel strong development in the mining sector is inevitable for years to come.
