Technical Reporting

Technical Reporting

Maintaining compliance in today’s mining industry is a key regulatory aspect at every stage of development. Our wide range of tailored technical reports are unbiased, professionally sound, independent – and always guided by the governing principles of transparency, materiality and competence.

We’re a proven provider of competent person’s reports (or mineral expert reports) for many stock exchanges including the Main Board and AIM in London, Toronto, Hong Kong and Australia. Where resources and reserves are declared, we tend to favour reporting in accordance with the JORC Code. The new version (JORC 2012) became mandatory on 1 December 2013.

Other reports include technical due diligence (project audit), scoping studies (similar to a preliminary economic assessment as defined under NI 43-101, the reporting standard common to Canadian exchanges which allows some assumptions), pre-feasibility studies (±30% accuracy on costs, considering a number of possible project development strategies and within which ore reserves are derived), and definitive feasibility studies (10-15% accuracy on costs and used to take a project forward to development, often representing the trigger for project finance).

We have many expert engineers and geologists certified by the appropriate authorities to carry out these studies and sign off the reports.
