About Us

The Company

Korean Metals Exploration Pty Ltd (“KME”) has established a portfolio of polymetallic mineral projects in South Korea based on 25 years “in-country” operational exploration expertise. KME is a privately-owned Australian company with a 100% owned Korean subsidiary Shin Han Mine Inc (“Shin Han”).



KME has secured the Mining Rights to “forgotten Brownfield Assets” in the Uiseong and Haman mining districts, located in the southeast of the Korean peninsula. Haman was Korea’s largest copper and cobalt producing district and mining occurred in the Uiseong district during 1968-1975. There has been no modern exploration concepts or methods applied on these properties since 1983. KME considers the Uiseong and Haman projects represent low-risk, very cost-effective Exploration Targets, with excellent potential for future commercial production.


KME offers investors the unique opportunity to quickly convert drill-ready Exploration Targets into Mineral Resources at low exploration risk. KME intends raising sufficient capital to undertake confirmatory drill testing, establish JORC/NI 43-101 compliant Mineral Resources, conduct metallurgical studies, and complete preliminary economic assessments on the identified, drill-ready Exploration Targets in the Uiseong, Haman and Goseong projects. KME would then propose to rapidly advance the key deposits into production by seeking local domestic offtake partners.
