There are also mining areas in the province, such as found in the Municipality of Bayog managed by TVI, a Canadian-based mining firm which concentrates on gold mining, and the Cebu Ore Mining which is handling the Ore-Copper-Steel mines.

 In the Current year, the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office of Zamboanga del Sur implemented the different priority programs and projects for environmental enhancement and protection in conformity with the approved Physical and Financial Plan (PFP). This is extracted from the General Plan of Action (GPOA) which is the operational blue print of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

  As a policy, the targeted activities reflected in the plan were correspondingly distributed/assigned to the two (2) CENR Offices – the front liners and/or direct project implementers. The conduct of the series of consultation, taking into consideration the manpower capabilities, administrative area of jurisdiction and the felt needs in terms of developmental perspective and service of the respective offices was the determining factor in the target allocation. 

 For the year 2013, PENRO Zamboanga del Sur had exemplarily accomplished the programmed targets for the year. The realization of these momentous achievements attributed much to the untiring commitment of all DENR officials and personnel at all levels coupled with the strong support and partnership of the concerned stakeholders; the Local Government Units, People’s Organization, Non-Government Organizations, National Service Agencies, Private Sectors and the Academes.
