Irving Resources Inc. (Irving) is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company with interests in Japan and Africa. In 2016, Irving incorporated a wholly-owned subsidiary in Japan named, Irving Resources Japan GK which enables Irving to acquire and hold exploration and mining projects in Japan. Irving is focused on identifying high-silica, high-grade epithermal vein mineralization that could potentially be suitable for use as smelter flux in the operating base metals smelters across Japan. In addition, Irving holds Project Venture Agreements with the Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) for the joint exploration programs in Malawi, the United Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Madagascar.
The Mining sector includes emerging companies engaged in mineral exploration and development, the backbone of Canada's natural resource industry.
