The base is believed to contain underground military silos capable of holding long-range missiles. An image taken from a military intelligence satellite captured an image of what seem to look like underground missile pods and two small buildings believed to be the entrance of the tunnel and an external observation building. What stirs analyst to think that these are military installations is the composition of the structure: It is fully made of concrete even its sloping roofs.

He added that this 500-hectare area was allegedly sold to the Chinese by a former Governor of Zambales (name withheld for verification).

"They sold it to the Chinese – three mountains that compose a 500 hectare island area where they have stationed their missile; that’s why an American warship has been keeping an eye on it since the ruling favorable to the Philippines by the arbitration court),” Deloso said.
There were previous reports saying that "three Chinese conglomerates namely, Jiangxi Rare Earth & Metals Tungsten Group, Wei-Wei Group, and Nihao Mineral Resources Inc. also operate in Sta.Cruz and have put up five “minahang bayan (small-scale mines)” through Filipino dummies.
The governor noted that Beijing has already established itself not only in Panatag/Scarborough Shoal (formerly Bajo de Masinloc) but also in the mountains and the mainland. The disputed island is 85 kilometers from Sta. Cruz municipality but only 65 km more or less from Masinloc.
It looks like China is dead serious in invading the Philippine. They already exploited our minerals and they don't want to let go of it.
