The ION team is also excited about the US government’s recent Memorandum of Understanding with the Mongolian government, to advance critical metal cooperation between the two governments. ION Energy’s long term vision to disrupt the Asian battery metal supply, through our flagship assets in Mongolia, continues to provide a strong value proposition to our shareholders.” states CEO & Director, Ali Haji.
