Southern Ionics Inc.

Mr. Renner is a geologist and environmental planner with 25 years of experience in natural resource consulting.

He is working to advance a company-wide commitment to environmental stewardship and is assisting the newly-formed mining group in developing mines and mineral processing facilities in southeast Georgia.
