There are no Holocene eruptions known for Natib. If this volcano has had large eruptions prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

The massive stratovolcano of Mount Natib, at the northern end of the Bataan Peninsula, is truncated by a 6 x 7 km caldera. The latest dated eruptive products are 69,000 +/- 27,000 years old (Ebasco Services 1977), but sampling is not in sufficient detail to determine the date of the latest eruptions. Ruaya and Panem (1991) listed the age of the dominantly andesitic volcano as late Pliocene to Pleistocene, but gave a probable age of the latest activity as Holocene to upper Pleistocene. Five thermal areas are present in the summit region.
