This sequence was later intruded by intermediate plutonic rock (Kapoas granite) and subsequence overlain by relatively undeformed Upper Eocene to Recent sediments offshore. The northern parts of the main Palawan Island and the Calamian Group are composed of uplifted basement chert and limestone, which constitute in part.The igneous bodies in the Northern Part are the Kapoas Diorite intruded at the Kapoas Peninsula and at east side of the Ulugan bay during the Oligocene time and the Manguao Volcanics exposed at the eastern side of the northern main Palawan Island in the Pleistocene time.In the northern central part of the main Palawan Island , the basement consists of phyllitic rocks and mica schist. These basement rocks are covered by Tertiary Sedimentary rocks and thrusted over by t
