International standards for the reporting of Mineral Resources, Mineral Reserves and Exploration Results have been developing at a rapid pace for the past 20 years due to the globalization of the mining industry.
Standards for the valuation of Mineral Properties have followed a similar course. This website acts as an online "hub" providing access to the standards, guidelines and best practices for reporting and valuation in Canada and globally.
The development of this website is guided by the CIM Standards and Guidelines Advisory Group. Led by experts, this group will set the strategic direction of the site to create a forum for knowledge sharing.
As well, the site will provide for increased discussion on the practical implementation and sound interpretation of the standards, guidelines and best practices guiding reporting and valuation activities.
