Metals

JOGMEC seeks to ensure a stable supply of metal resources which are indispensable for Japanese industry, and contributes to a wide range of fields including surveying, exploration, development, production and stockpiling to recycling and environmental protection.

While implementing and assisting geological surveys in prospective areas for metal resources, JOGMEC also supports exploration and development by Japanese companies by providing equity capital and liability guarantees. JOGMEC also actively carries out technological development and provides technical support in each stage of metal resource development, and operates national stockpiling programs as a safeguard against disruptions to the supply of rare metals, which are unevenly distributed by region. In addition, JOGMEC is working on environmental protection including projects for mine pollution prevention and associated project development, as well as proactively providing related technology and knowledge to resource-rich countries.
