According to the Philippines Mines and Geosciences Bureau, of the total 44 operating metallic mines in the country, 27 are of nickel. Other metals account for the remainder which includes gold, silver, copper and chromite. Nickel is mainly mined in the Palawan and Zambales provinces, with notable activities in the provinces of Surigao del Norte, Agusan del Norte and the Dinagat Islands.

The Philippines had 3.1Mt of nickel reserves as of January 2015, accounting for approximately 3.8% of the global total. Nickel deposits in the country are predominantly associated with laterite ores (limonite being a member of the laterite family), but are also found in dunite, pyroxenite and gabbroic rocks as stated by the Philippines’ Mines and Geosciences Bureau.

Timetric's 'Base Metals Mining in the Philippines to 2020 – a Focus on the Nickel Industry' report comprehensively covers Philippines reserves of nickel, by ore type, grade by province and mine, the historic and forecast data on nickel mine production and price, production by province, nickel exports and exports by country.

The report also includes factors affecting demand for nickel, profiles of major nickel producing companies in the country and information on the active, exploration and development nickel projects.

The Fiscal Regime section provides information about the country’s regulatory authority, laws, licenses and other fiscal regime information such as taxes, rates and other charges applicable to the mining of the commodity in the country.

It is an essential tool for companies active in Philippines mining and for new competitors considering entering the industry.

Scope
The report contains an overview of the Philippines nickel mining industry together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodity.

It also provides information about Philippines nickel reserves, historic and forecast data on nickel mine production and production by provinces, the competitive landscape and active, exploration and development nickel projects.

Reasons To Buy
Gain an understanding of the nickel mining industry in Philippines, nickel reserves, historic and forecast data on nickel mine production and production provinces, demand drivers, active, exploration and development nickel projects, the competitive landscape and the country's fiscal regime.

Key Highlights
• Most of the nickel is mined from the Palawan and Zambales provinces, with significant mining operations in Surigao del Norte, Agusan del Norte and the Dinagat Islands.

• Nickel deposits can be found in combination with green chromium, lead, cobalt, silver and gold.

• The country’s mining industry is governed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Mines and Geosciences Bureau. The Philippine Mining Act of 1995 is the apex governing law for the country’s mining industry.
