Philex Mining Corporation

Company Description
Philex Mining Corporation (PX) was incorporated on July 19, 1955 to primarily engage in mining activities. The Company and its subsidiaries are organized into two main business groupings: the mining business under the PX, Philex Gold Philippines, Inc. (PGPI), Silangan Mindanao Exploration Co., Inc. (SMECI) and Silangan Mindanao Mining Co., Inc. (SMMCI); and the energy and hydrocarbon business under PXP Energy Corporation but not until July 15, 2016, when PXP and its subsidiaries ceased to be subsidiaries of PX as a result of loss on control through property dividend declaration. Currently, the group focuses on its core mining business.

PX and its subsidiaries are primarily engaged in large-scale exploration, development, and utilization of mineral resources. The Company operates the Padcal mine for the past 63 years using the underground block-cave method. It is one of the longest operating mines in the country and produces copper concentrates, containing copper, gold and silver. PGPI operated the Bulawan mine in Negros Occidental until the second quarter of 2002. SMECI, through SMMCI, owns the Silangan project covering the Boyongan and Bayugo deposits in Surigao del Norte.
