Public Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves and SAMCODE STANDARDS COMMITTEE (SSC) PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 29 January 2016 10:14

Attracting finance for exploration and mining ventures is a critical part of the resource business environment today, and there are a number of finance options available, including accessing private equity. With the increase in the number of non-listed (private) companies and individuals seeking to obtain financial assistance, it is important to appreciate that issues of public reporting are not confined to listed companies only.  Under all circumstances, if Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and/or Mineral Reserves are reported publically (as defined in the SAMREC Code of 2016), and if said report is claimed to have been compiled in accordance with any of the SAMREC, SAMVAL or SAMOG Codes, then the report and the author are subject to the minimum standards and requirements of the relevant Code as well as the complaints procedure of the SAMCODE Standards Committee (SSC).

Australian Guidelines for the estimation and classification of Coal Resources 2014 Edition PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 11 November 2014 13:40

New Australian Guidelines for the estimation and classification of Coal Resources 2014 Edition have now been published by the Coalfields Geology Council of New South Wales and the Queensland Resources Council following an extensive process of reviewing the former 2003 Guidelines.

The new 2014 edition of the Guidelines should now be referred to by minerals professionals working on Coal Resources estimation.

The Australian Guidelines for the Estimation and Classification of Coal Resources 2014 Edition has been recognised as the successor document as published from time to time by the Coalfields Geology Council of New South Wales and the Queensland Resources Council referred to in the guidance to Clause 42: "For guidance on the estimation of Coal Resources and Reserves and on statutory reporting not primarily intended for providing information to the investing public, readers are referred to the 'Australian Guidelines for Estimating and Reporting of Inventory Coal, Coal Resources and Coal Reserves' or its successor document as published from time to time by the Coalfields Geology Council of New South Wales and the Queensland Resources Council. These guidelines do not override the provisions and intentions of the JORC Code for Public Reporting. Competent Persons should as always exercise their judgement in the application of these guidelines to ensure they are appropriate to the circumstances being reported. They may not be appropriate for use in all situations in Australia or overseas."
