You will need to either apply a Surface Template to the Terrain with a minimal thickness 0.0001 or use the "Mesh from Element" tool with "Keep Original" ticked and apply a Mesh feature Definition.
Unfortunately only Featurized meshes get exported using the ORD IFC Export tool currently.

I have a ridiculously large terrain model...can you point me to this magical surface template, as my list is empty. Thanks in advance
You should be able to create one that you can use in 1 minute (a simple component in your Template Library).
Mark, Thanks for the speedy response. Lets pretend i am neither a true microstation, nor inroads user. Templates went out the door 30 years ago for me. However, I need to create an IFC model from a terrain surface and i do not have a template library? that I know of, unless it was packaged with ORD. A little more of a hint would be perfect. Thanks heaps
These should help:
