    Gold prospecting in Philippines

    Is here somebody with good knowledge of Philippines? What are the best places for gold dredging, using of metal detectors, etc.
    I have selected some places for visit during my vacation in February 2011 (Sibuyan, Compostella Valey, Surigao) whre some gold is. However, I accept advice from more experienced. (any good area to try metal detector?)

    Re: Gold prospecting in Philippines

    first, I do not know of areas in the phillipines, but a heads up thats important. When traveling in certain countries
    you need to be extra careful, I know that the jungles in the phillipines harbor some unsavory, anti american militant
    groups. In addition, when in countries where there is extreme poverty, you need to take care, that your detector
    will be a magnet for bandits.

    Using your detector at a beach in a heavy tourist area may be safer, but remember there are thieves who thrive on
    tourist. of course thats almost everywhere, but in countries where there is much poverty more so.

    Here in Panama if they know you are an american, its like you are walking around with a sign on your head that
    says ATM. I am more fortunate as my wife is Panamanian, so she knows the ropes. Panama is a great place
    for vacation, detecting the tourist areas of the miles of beach.

    Prospecting for gold is a different game, need to go to the interior rural areas. There is a company called Panama
    adventures, and one other that advertises vacations of gold prospecting. These would be safer bets. No I do not work for them
    just a retired vet, whose been around the block.

    best wishes and good luck

    (Finding gold)
    Go to this site http://www.mindat.org/loc-21930.html >find your region on the map or find your prvovince in the list below>open all the links and find the ones that say major commodities gold or trace gold.


    (my opinion)
    Perhaps after seeing all the sites find the ones that seem safest or easiest to get to. As far as thieves I would suppose that yes they would be concentrated in the tourist areas or in places where they would have the best chance of finding a victim. I doubt being far away from a tourist area in the jungle somewhere they will be looking. Besides I bet you can hire a guide and they would be armed and know the lay of the land well.

    I don't know about militants or political issues in country.
    I would look into it contact the authorities in the area look up information on the area and so on. You might find a forum from there so you can speak with other people from where ever your going. I am sure there is a group of people like you there

    If you tell me exactly where you will be going I will make a map of the area you want with only gold mines on a google map.

    (Geology)
    Gold is found along or near fault lines and is also found in certain types of rock. You can download google earth and then get a geologic overlay for the area you need.

    Thank you for your reply.
    I consider Cagayan de Oro district in Mindanao, Surigao, Sibuyan Island in Visayas. However, I can go anywhere except some hot areas in southern Mindanao or a NPA dominated areas in Bicol. The most important is that I need a proper place where gold is in suitable form. For instance, in Compostella Valley near Nabunturan the gold is dispersed in fine grain inside the rock. The panning or metal detecting is not possible. So for me is most important to look for place where the gold is in suitable sized nuggets.

    Davao's mains product is GOLD, so there is plenty...

    I have a friend not far away from Davao that finds some but need equipment to find more, a metal detector could be a good thing for a start.

    Gold in river tends to hang in the curves, good places to explore dry river curves.

    There are many reports about professional mining in Philippines on the net as well.

    I have a site here in the Visayan region and we have some positive signs engraved in the rock namely ( a heart shape, an F and an arrow). Our site also has a Japanese history. A lot of treasure hunters(korean and japanese) have been visiting our lot before and were very interested. Some of the koreans dug up some bones and brought it to korea. It is in the mountains and is near a river creek. A bomb was also found beside our lot and the bomb( water barrel size) was pointing to our lot. I would want to now if you have gadgets or a scanner that would be able to see the object and its depth. If possible, may I ask for your contact number. I am willing to negotiate it with you. Thank you very much. Happy Holidays and God bless you all.

    Lets Opend it again :-)

    Four killed in CamSur over small mining row

    Caramoan Mayor Jun Cordial, Vice Mayor Irene Breis and Barangay Gata Captain Mercy Sueno yesterday appealed for immediate assistance from the national government after Sagip Kalikasan personnel allegedly killed four barangay folk in the gold-rich island-barangay Gata in Caramoan, Camarines Sur.
    The killings took place after Sagip Kalikasan personnel were said to have harassed residents over small mining in Barangay Gata. This prompted the local folk to apply for a “minahan ng bayan permit” from the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
    While the permit was being processed, the MGB issued a temporary permit through DENR-MGB personnel Marcel Pestao so that the residents of Gata could support their livelihood and maintain order in the area.
    Because of this, the barangay residents were able to continue their small mining activities which had been their livelihood since World War II.
    Irked by this development, the Camarines Sur Sagip Kalikasan personnel in Gata, Caramoan headed by Eco Tria yesterday insisted that the barangay residents should halt their mining operations.
    In response, Barangay Captain Mercy Sueno presented the temporary permit of the barangay residents and asked the Sagip Kalikasan personnel to present documents that would prove their presence in the was legal.
    Tria asserted that they were there under the orders of Gov. Luis Miguel Villafuerte. He presented a document which showed that the Sagip Kalikasan personnel were allowed to conduct a checkpoint.
    The lady barangay captain questioned the document by saying that it does not apply in the island barangay since checkpoints are conducted on roads.
    Tria asked the barangay residents to wait as he would confer with “higher” officials.
    Tria left the barangay but returned with about 20 Sagip Kalikasan personnel. They allegedly pointed their guns at the barangay residents engaged in mining.
    When the barangay residents felt they had no choice but to fight, the Sagip Kalikasan personnel allegedly opened fire, instantly killing four residents, with one victim hit in the eye.
    This prompted the municipal officials headed by Mayor Constantino Cordial and Vice Mayor Irene Breis to reiterate their request for the national government to intervene.
    Municipal officials of Caramoan question the presence and illegal activities of the provincial government’s Sagip Kalikasan in the island which conducts its own gold-mining activities.

    Hello. Though this post is old, Im replying considering that Im from the Philippines. I just registered in this site. If you are interested I can be your partner in hunting gold bars in my place. I suspected alot of gold bars buried underground in my farm considering some suspicious treasure signs. My neighbors even got some by plowing a field. If you have gold scanner, we can work together on this. You can contact me at my email address gentzcool@gmail.com.
