NI 43-101 has dominated mining technical disclosure in Canada for over 20 years, and yet companies, engineers, and geoscientists still find themselves producing technical reports which contain compliance issues. However, NI 43-101 itself, is just the starting point for writing a technical report. In order to create a technical report, it is necessary to have an understanding of how other factors such as regulatory guidance, corporate motivations, investor trust, and the ethical conduct and technical knowledge of the qualified person(s) can influence report development. As each report will be surrounded by its own set of unique factors, it is important to be aware of these as they can result in potentially misleading technical disclosure.

This short course provides the participant with the knowledge and guidance to identify many of the common factors that can impact report creation, as well as avoid the traps that lead to technical reports that don't comply with NI 43-101.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the different types of risks when developing technical reports (regulatory, corporate, personal).
  • Find out where to obtain important guidance given in NI 43-101 and CIMM standards, guidelines, and best practices.
  • Gain insight as to which reports will be likely be reviewed for compliance, and by whom.
  • Recognize the different challenges between preparing a report for an early stage property versus an advanced stage property.
  • Identify hurdles that can slow down or disrupt report development.
  • Avoid common technical report disclosure errors and mistakes.
  • Know what is required when QP’s sign a Certificate of Qualified Person or provides a Consent.

Target Audience

  • Geoscientists
  • Mineral process engineers
  • Structural engineers
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Civil engineers
  • Geotechnical engineers
  • Environmental scientists
  • QP’s supervising people preparing content for a report

This course will appeal to anyone who is contributing or, or creating, technical content for a report prepared in accordance with NI 43-101. The course will also be of value to geoscientists and engineers for mineral exploration and mining companies.
