(6) Hosting the barite deposit is the Mansalay Formation located in the municipality of Mansalay in southeastern Mindoro Island. The deposit is of vein and fissure-filling type and is related to Tertiary dioritic rocks. A geochemical anomalous zone was found in the upper reaches of the Barac River, which is close to the Taoga working mine. This may be an indication of new ore deposit but is still considered small in scale from the geological point of view. (7) Coal deposits occur in the Miocene-age Sablayan Group composed of alternating beds of calcareous sandstone/siltstone and calcareous mudstone with calorific values ranging from 11,100 to 12, 600 BTU/lb, which correspond to high-volatile C bituminous coal (American Standard of coal Classification). The observed deposits are found in the municipality of Bulalacao in Oriental mindoro Geographical Map

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
