Mining industry legend and Associate Principal Geologist at AMC Consultants' office in Vancouver, Pat Stephenson, will present the paper The Australasian JORC Code for Public Reporting of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves for the Benefit of all Stakeholders at the upcoming Resources for Future Generations Conference—RFG2018. The conference will examine three critical resources—energy, minerals, and water—in the context of the earth, environment, education, society, and the needs and roles of future generations and will take place in Vancouver, Canada between 16 to 21 June.
Many mining companies are cutting exploration budgets to survive the current mining downturn and low commodity prices. As a result, some firms either do not have enough geological and support staff or they have inexperienced staff members who do not adequately understand the geology, mining method used and processing aspects of their operation or project. This can negatively impact the quality of Mineral Resource or Reserve estimates and statements as well as the preparation of long-term mine plans.
