DENR serves show-cause letter to mining firms

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) began sending out show-cause letter to mining companies facing suspension. These firms are also expected to respond next week and explain why their operation should not be suspended.

Chamber of Mines of the Philippines (COMP) Vice President for Legal and Policy Ronald Recidoro said on Wednesday that several weeks after the DENR announced the initial findings of the mining audit, the agency finally issued show-cause orders to some mining companies asking them to explain why their operation should not be suspended.

Recidoro said in a phone interview that the distribution of the letter should also be done this week.

According to the DENR letter, all these companies have the opportunity to address the findings and recommendations contained within the audit report within seven days of receipt.
