Environmental Regulation and Performance
In South Korea exploration and mining activity is principally regulated at the national level by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) which in turn manages mining and exploration affairs through the Mine Registration Office and the Mine Safety Office.
Environmental issues are regulated through either the Framework Act on Environmental Policy or the Environmental Impact Assessment Act.
Iondrive’s wholly owned subsidiary in South Korea, Korea Metal Resources, carries out exploration activities and there have been no known environmental breaches attributed to these exploration activities to date.
