I have a little knowledge about Philippines because my wife is from that said country. I know that some places in the Philippines are blessed with abundant mineral content. I read somewhere in the internet that the well developed province of Batangas which is 100km south of Manila is known to have a large copper-gold porphyry deposit. Because of this, a mining company in Canada is working on the Taysan Project. The mining company focuses on drilling and assessment of the Taysan Deposit that is present in the area. It is also believed that the project has an excellent exploration potential for other mineral content.

I am glad to know that there have been many successful mining ventures in the Philippines. I am sure that it brought financial gain to some people and it provided job opportunities too. One of the successful mining that is very well-known is the Antipolo Epithermal Gold Mine.
