Mineral Resource - 22 October 2018

SRK convened the Mineral Resource estimation conference at the Geological Society of London, forming part of the GeolSoc’s Year of the Resource. The conference brought together resource geology practitioners including consultants, mining companies, software providers and students across Europe. The aim was to discuss and share current best practice and recent developments with themes including data quality issues, geological modelling and grade estimation techniques along with resource reporting. A variety of topics provoked interesting discussion amongst the 90-strong audience, from machine learning applied to an operating underground palaeoplacer gold deposit to dimension stone reporting and valuation methodologies. SRK hopes that the success of the conference allows for it to become a regular feature in the calendar of European-based resource geologists.
