The gold development company primarily focused on South Korea said the new local JV partner is investing USD5 million into the Gubong gold project.

Chief Executive Officer Colin Patterson said: "Our recent trip to South Korea was highly successful. Having hit the ground running at Gubong with our new partner, engaging in discussions about development plans, the role of our geological team, and community programmes, we now hope to finalise a similar joint venture for Kochang to secure free carries on all our high-grade gold projects."
