Philippine Mining Prospects (August 2005)


Introduction

The location of the Philippines being at the so-called Pacific “rim of fire” makes it a mineral-rich country. This vast natural resource, however, remained untapped at present. So rich is its mineral stock that it ranks third in the world in terms of gold deposits, fourth in copper, fifth in nickel and sixth in chromite.
