a
Metallics values for Copper, Nickel Beneficiated Ore and Zinc Concentrates are the same with values in metal form therefore
are not reflected in the overall production values.
b
Cement in the National Accounts of the Philippines is classified under the manufacturing sector thus values for cement shall
be excluded in the total mineral production values, instead values for cement raw materials shall be considered.
c
Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas gold purchases from Small Scale Mines (SSM) not available by province.
d
Sand and Gravel and Salts are estimates.
Details may not add up to totals due to rounding. Figures in parentheses are not included in totals.
