MINERAL


Badoc is not a mining community and so far there are no metallic minerals discovered
therein. There are however two non-metallic minerals found within the Municipality. The first one is salt
which is produced through the crude cooking process from the fine sand on a one- kilometer stretch
of the Pagsanahan shore. Salt making in this particular area serves as one of the principal sources of
income of many families living in this coastal barangay. Development of this is very feasible through the
adoption of easier and faster methods in the salt-making process. The second one is the clay deposits
on the mountainside situated at Barangay Labut. It has been tested that this kind of clay is good for
making pottery and likewise suitable for the ceramic industry.
