The Philippines possesses abundant mineral resources. According to the Mines and Geoscience Bureau’s report, the country is ranked 3rd globally in terms of copper reserves and 2nd in gold reserves. The presence of the Philippines along the Pacific Ring of Fire results in a significant number of copper-gold deposits, primarily of the porphyry type. These deposits benefit from efficient and widely adopted processing methods, such as flotation and leaching for copper, resulting in the production of copper concentrates.
