The Petroleum Division of the Bureau of Mines is presently undertaking a general program involving biostratigraphic studies of the major depositional basins in the country. The primary object of this program is to establish bases for intra-and extra basinal and regional correlations by the use of fossil Foraminifera and, finally, to standardize the stratigraphic nomenclature of the Philippines. In connection with this project plane table section measurements and detailed microfaunal sampling were undertaken along roads in Bondoc Peninsula, Quezon. Subsequently, detailed studies of the microforaminiferal fauna collected therefrom, particularly their bathymetric distribution and associations as related to lithofacies, were undertaken.
