Note: The administrative hierarchy of the Philippines is inconsistently described in the usual web resources, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippines#Administrative_divisions and http://www.statoids.com/uph.html

According to Wikipedia, the Philippines is divided into three island groups: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. As of March 2010, these were divided into 17 regions, 80 provinces, 138 cities, 1,496 municipalities, and 42,025 barangays.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Pleistocene : 1.56 ± 0.29 Ma to 1.17 ± 0.16 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
