The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has canceled the environmental compliance certificate (ECC) of Cekas Development Corporation, a firm engaged in iron and copper mining located in Barangay Dansolihon, Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental, for failing to operate within the allotted 5-year validity period of the ECC.

DENR Secretary Regina Lopez noted that the ECC issued to the mining project was based on the existing environmental conditions at that time. She said the firm should re-apply and present a new environmental plan if it wants to continue the project.
