To require a specific location or date Register Now
This two-day seminar aims at achieving an understanding at a theoretical and practical level about the development of resource models and the rules for achieving quality output. It will provide:
- An understanding of key concepts in resource estimation
- Do’s and don’ts of resource estimation based on practical examples
- An understanding of different levels of feasibility studies and the notion of recoverable resource
- Introduction to resource reporting codes such as JORC, NI 43-101, rules, criteria, developments
- Overview of project valuation techniques and how to account for project risk
By the end of this seminar participants should have a high level understanding of key resources evaluation concepts, market reporting codes and resource project valuations techniques.
Who should attend
The content of the course and the wide experience of the trainers aims to address a large audience of professionals involved in the estimation or the analysis of mining resource estimates and their reporting to the markets (business analysts, resource auditors in mining companies, banks, advisory firms, etc.).
