Effective July 2006
International Reporting Template for the Public Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources & Mineral Reserves
Developed by the Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO), this Template integrates the minimum standards being adopted in national reporting codes worldwide, with recommendations and interpretive guidelines for the Public Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves.
The purpose of the International Reporting Template is to assist with the dissemination and promotion of effective, well-tried, good practice for public reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves already widely adopted through national reporting codes.
The International Template is advisory only and where national codes already exist, these will take precedence.
The Template is intended to assist those countries that either do not have a reporting code or whose code is outdated, to produce a new code consistent with international best practice. It also provides a consolidated version of national codes that reflects their compatible international components and may thus be used in comparison with other international reporting systems.
