Investment Oppurtunities

Mining has considerable potential as an industry in the province with its diverse range of mineral commodities such as Iron Ore, Magnetite, Shale, Silica, and Armor Rock. To protect its natural resources, Ilocos Norte passed the comprehensive quarry ordinance to create a sustainable and responsible mining industry.

Investment Potential

  • Armor Rock: used for the construction of sea walls or shorelines, streambeds bridge abutments, pilings, and other shoreline structure against scour and water or wave erosion.
  • Silica and Feldspar: mainly used in glass-making and electronics.
  • Limestone: used as an aggregate - the solid base for many roads as well as asphalt concrete.
