It is very interesting to note for a traveler that the spectacular karsts limestone in the Saint Paul area and El Nido area that Palawan is somewhat famous for different origin and age. The limestone in the Saint Paul National Park east of Ulugan bay where the famous underground river is based are relatively young. Based on its fossil content, it's assigned an Oligocene-Miocene age, approximately thirty to fifteen million years old. Younger limestone formed largely as reef structures on the bit of continental crust that drifted south from China during the opening of the South China Sea.
These limestones are the same as those that host most of the oil and gas that is being extracted offshore in the South China Sea. But on the other hand, the limestones in the El Nido area are largely Permian in age. These kinds of stones are the equivalent of the karst limestone found in Vietnam and China. The rocks in central Palawan and northern Palawan are young granite bodies in the age of Miocene or approximately thirteen to fifteen years old.
