My understanding with that map you posted is that it is only part of the map. Half of that map posted would point to Davao that started from the rivers going out to the sea. I have attach Sat photo of my opinion on what the map is describing and the other maps. Regards.

Hello chrispadi, I don't know whether this map is a treasure map or for logistic purposes. But the two map combined it would look to me as location and vicinity map. The rectangular shape on that map seems to point in a location near the Davao pearl farm. See Attach.

yamideo i cannot read the words and characters in the map as well but quite familiar of the place, the one in the map is the old runway and the sat pics you posted belongs to a log importer and lumberyard that cease operating and now the area being develop as a big first class resort type condo and townhouse complex.

Yes i was thinking  that it could be a runway or a pier. But i could not identify the old runway. Is the old runway in the area of DENR

Well i cannot locate the old airport to check if it is in the right orientation. Anyway the old lumber seem to be in the correct orientation and that area including the old airport is in the correct area being describe in the map which in my opinion is tied to paradise resort accross the island for the bearings.

oopps! we're getting farther.
but as for pearl farm it is owned by aguinaldo and joint venture with japanese as pearl farm planting bamboo sticks with oysters in it but hauling valuables from underneath, once completed the project, the place was bought/(or?) by floreindos to develop into a resort from once a ww2 seven ship resting place underneath the bay, and by the way FM probably knew this way back 58 and upward teaming up with the japanese investors.
and for that 25 hectare place of land in sat pics of log importer/lumberyard area, ayalas are the ones.

For myself, we re currently involved in a disputed land site of a confirmed deposit.  The legal owners are being defrauded in a phony land title claim files by guess who, Ayala .  The land is in the middle of nowhere and otherwise is worthless.  So why does Ayala want a 2 hector land plot, with no roads no access and no utilities in a non agricultural group of rocks ???  Hmmmm  - - - - .
