Environmental Regulation and Performance

South Korea

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. Southern Gold is currently investigating the detailed regulatory framework in South Korea to ensure it manages the business prudently as we move projects forward into production.

Southern Gold's wholly owned subsidiary in South Korea, Southern Gold Korea, carries out exploration activities and there have been no known environmental breaches attributed to these exploration activities to date.
