15-16 August 2017
Emperors Palace, Hotel Casino Convention Resort, Johannesburg
The object of the Course is to address the more complex application of the codes through case studies. It will be assumed that the participants are fully conversant with the codes and are able to discuss their perspective on aspects of the case studies. The emphasis will be on being able to face one’s peers and include both compliance and best practice aspects of the codes.
The course will take the form of group discussions of various case studies to facilitate discussion. The four topics selected are Precious Metals, Coal, Diamonds and Valuation covering Exploration Results, Mineral Resources, Mineral Reserves and Valuations.
Participants will be supplied with material to review prior to the workshop. They will be placed in groups to discuss and dissect the material – 2 or 3 groups will be asked to present their findings at the end of each session. Each case study is designed for a 3-hour morning or afternoon session.
The workshop is intended to allow mining industry professionals to improve their knowledge and application of the advanced aspects of the SAMREC and SAMVAL Codes.
Sponsorship opportunities are available.
