  • 1. Update of Coral Bay Nickel Corporation’sHydrometallurgical Processing Plant For Low Grade Nickel Ores
  • 2. The Project is located within theindustrial facility of Rio Tuba NickelMining Corporation (RTNMC) in Brgy.Rio Tuba, Bataraza, Palawan.Since 1977, RTNMC has been miningsaprolitic nickel ores selling them toferro-nickel smelters abroad. In more Coral Bay Nickel Corporationthan 25 years of operation, it alsogenerated mine wastes of about 25million tonnes. Called low gradelimonitic mine wastes, these arestockpiled around the mine area. Rio Tuba Nickel Mining CorpCBNC will process these stockpilesusing the technology called HPAL orhigh pressure acid leach.

  • 18. The results of the study showed thatthe flora and vegetation within theproject site and its vicinities are stillintact. Generally the type of vegetationis secondary forest in a large extent,grassland and a disturbance issomewhat minimal and considered asinsignificant considering theparameters used by the monitoring andassessing team. Generally the type ofvegetation is secondary forest in a largeextent, grassland and brushlandformation which is dominated by thepioneer species. In some observationsagricultural areas and agroforest wereobserved including old follow orabandoned kaingin.The dominant plant form around thearea is trees followed by herbs, vinesand shrubs.
