MINERAL RESOURCES

Mineral extractions and other economic activities in the upland areas threatened the marine ecosystem to deplete. Various initiatives and efforts are now beginning to emerge in the area. A notable initiative is the Sibuguey Valley Management Council (SVMC). However, the upland area of R. T. Lim, Tungawan, Ipil and other parts of the province are still to be given attention for Upland Resource management (URM).

The 2003 reports of the Bureau of Mines and Geosciences that claimed the sites for mining and quarrying were the municipalities of Alicia, Buug, Diplahan, Malangas, Payao, R.T. Lim, Titay and Tungawan. The list of mineral production are classified into two areas the Mineral Production Sharing Agreements (MPSA) and the Exploration Permits (EP).
