Best Practice Guidelines for Reporting of Lithium Brine Resources and Reserves
November 1, 2012

These guidelines were prepared by the Sub-Committee on Best Practice Guidelines for Resource and Reserve Estimation for Lithium Brines. The procedures and concepts presented below represent the state of the current understanding of the best practices that are applicable to the estimation of brine resources and brine reserves for lithium and other valuable metal ions in brine deposits. It is acknowledged that these practices are likely to evolve and improve with time as additional experience is gained from this deposit type. It is anticipated that these improvements will be the subject of and included in subsequent revisions of these Best Practices.
