This course is designed to help geoscientists and mining, geological, metallurgical and other engineers, who are or may be involved in mineral exploration or technical studies, to comply with ethics and regulatory standards (particularly, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Regulation S-K subpart 1300).
At the end of this two-day course, participants should be able to: (i) report exploration results, mineral resources, and mineral reserves per the new SEC standards; and (ii) act with the highest professional and ethical standards when reporting exploration results, mineral resource, and mineral reserves. The course covers a range of topics necessary to transition from Industry Guide 7 to subpart 1300. The course starts with the definitions of key terms and basic principles of public disclosure (materiality, transparency and competence). It then uses these concepts to help the participant understand how to apply this consistently and ethically to various scenarios in order to comply with the law and professional ethical standards.
