OceanaGold Launches P37-M Water Project At Didipio

In the Philippines’ volatile mining sector, OceanaGold appears to be hitting the mark and winning points at its Didipio Mine operations.

As reported by the local Philippines media, the fast-growing population in the upland mining village of Didipio in Kasibu town, Nueva Vizcaya, has prompted OceanaGold to provide it with a P37-million water system.

The natural spring water is the main source of the community’s drinking water as outlined in OceanaGold’s 2017 Mine Rehabilitation Fund Committee report, Water Resource Study for Barangay Didipio.

With this, OceanaGold, which operates the Didipio Mine, is working with the community for the construction of the P37-million Didipio Water System Project (DWSP) due for completion in 2019.
