   The Philippines is a well-endowed country in terms of mineral resources. With its long history and experience in mining, it has demonstrated its very rich potential for copper, gold, nickel, chromite and other metallic minerals through the commercial operation of numerous mines. It is also abundant in non-metallic and industrial minerals such as marble, limestone, clays, feldspar, rock aggregates, dolomite, , and other quarry resources.
   The country plays an important role in the world mineral resources due its relatively high mineral endowment ranking compared to its small land area. Based on past production and defined resources, the Philippine mineral endowment is second in the world for gold and third for copper.

location of mineral resources in Philippin
    During the past two and half decades, metallic minerals accounted for 61% of the country’s mineral production .Gold contributed the highest (36%) share followed by copper which comprised 21% of the total cumulative production.
   Copper deposits are also widely distributed throughout the country, and most copper deposits contain variable amounts of gold and silver. Estimated reserves of the copper ore in 1996 amounted to 4,052,087,000 metric tons that have an average grade of 0.4% Cu. Porphyry copper plays a major role in the country's mineral industry. It was a major commodity mined with the introduction of bulk or large scale methods of mining. While disseminated copper is the most popular, deposits of vein, contact metasomatic, Cyprus, Kuroko and Besshi type are also of economic significance.
