Geological survey

Joint venture survey

JOGMEC actively carries out joint venture (JV) exploration activities with overseas national corporations and private metals companies, through satellite image analysis, geophysical exploration, geological and drilling survey. When obtaining promising result by those activities, JOGMEC’s position in the project may be transferred to Japanese companies.

Major recent achievements

The Waterberg JV project in South Africa

JOGMEC enhanced the value of its project, by increasing the inferred mineral resource into 693 tons of platinum group metals and confirming the intercept of up to 80m, the thickest ever, with an average grade of 4.80g/t of platinum group metals, as the result of ongoing explorations.
