National Instrument 43-101 is an internationally recognized standard of disclosure for mineral projects and it has become a brand in the mining industry. This webinar presentation will review the roles and responsibilities of a Qualified Person when preparing scientific and technical information for public disclosure including content of technical reports.

Experience and competency in their area of expertise is not sufficient to be considered a Qualified Person for the subject matter on which they are providing a professional opinion. There is also an expectation for the Qualified Person to maintain a knowledge and understanding of the principles behind the disclosure standards of NI 43-101, as well as the professional practice documents that are referenced in NI 43-101. Consequences of not meeting this level of understanding will be discussed throughout the presentation.

Learning Objectives

  • Setting the regulatory scene: preferred capital markets for the mining industry.
  • Regulators in Canada that have oversight of mining technical disclosure.
  • Efforts to harmonize mining industry disclosure standards, definitions, and practices.
