Exploration geophysics as applied in the
Philippines yield favorable results.
Aeromagnetic survey done by Hunting
Geophysics, Ltd. defined several areas
for probable iron occurrences.
Subsequent prospecting efforts,
including ground magnetic work in
suggested areas revealed the presence of
iron bodies. Elsewhere, ground magnetic
work in iron properties helped evaluate
the potential and promises of the areas.
Several blind ore bodies were
Electrical method played a major part in
discovering a sulfide ore body in
Balabac Island. Airborne radiometry done
by Hunting established several
anomalies. One anomaly in Larap was
proved to be caused by uranium
mineralization. Lately a U.P.
geophysicist demonstrated the use of
seismic refraction method in probing the
extension of chromite bodies. Gravity
survey conducted on the Masinloc
chromite deposits disclosed a few
million tons of ore.
