Event description

Description

After more than ten years since the Bre-X scandal, are the risks associated with the geology of a Mineral Resource still being overlooked?

Reporting codes such as JORC, CIM and SAMREC have attempted to prevent such a scandal from happening again by qualifying the risks associated with projects within a standardised framework. However, more recent project examples show how geological and Mineral Resource risk still have a significant impact on the industry.

Over the past decade, companies have seen share prices collapse on the back of erroneous Mineral Resource estimates, and mining companies fail when risk-reduction opportunities in the project life-cycle have been overseen.

In this lunch seminar, geological risk expert, Justin Glanvill, will discuss:

  • Some of the key sources of geological and Mineral Resource risk.
  • The impact on projects through publicly recorded examples.
  • How risk is qualified through the use of reporting codes.
  • Potential future approaches to develop a more quantitative way of defining risk.
