Overview of the 2019 Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve Best Practices Guidelines


Abstract: Reno Pressacco will discuss CIM’s recently approved Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve Best Practices Guidelines, prepared by a committee of knowledgeable and experienced individuals to update CIM’s 2003 Best Practices Guidelines. Their work draws on information from various international guidelines, and incorporates lessons learned and knowledge gained by colleagues in the intervening years. There have been extensive revisions and additions to the original document in terms of structure and content. Since their roll-out, the updated guidelines have been well received and are expected to be a seminal reference source for Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve estimators within Canada and internationally.
