Intex set to start Mindoro project May 21, 2013 MANILA, Philippines - Norwegian-based Intex Resources ASA expressed optimism that it will finally be able to explore for nickel in the Mindoro province through its Mindoro Nickel Project (MNP) as it continues to  make substantial contribution to the province via its corporate social responsibility (CSR). The company’s LEAF project established 130-hectares of tree and agro-forestry plantations for the second quarter of this year. Furthermore, 23 water systems have been installed in different barangays providing potable water to a total of 16,500 household beneficiaries in 23 host and impact communities. “To this day, no single private initiative has ever contributed an important and basic service delivery to the development of Mindoro such as this.  This is a significant and major contribution of Intex Resources’ MNP   in the province” remarked BuCor’s Sablayan Prison Penal Farm (SPPF) Superintendent, Francisco Abunales in his speech at the ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the Potable Water System and the SPPF LEAF nursery.  “In more than 50 years, this is the first time that the SPPF will now have potable water in our offices, households, plant nurseries and prison cell facilities,” he added. With MNP’s community development program, a significant number of constituents from host and impact communities are already benefiting real socio-economic services even before MNP’s actual mining operations are conducted. They are serious in their environment initiatives to demonstrate consistency with being a responsible mining company.
