Public reporting, professional practice, and industry guidance: Meeting expectations of securities regulators

While NI 43-101 is the “public face” of mining disclosure in Canada, there are several key organizations that play a significant role in the overall stability of the mining disclosure rule. This course will discuss the interdependence of securities regulators, professional geoscience regulators, and technical societies in maintaining the confidence in public reporting.

NI 43-101 sets minimum standards for disclosure—it does not prescribe how exploration programs are designed and executed or how mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates are prepared. This means the qualified person, with the required technical competence, relevant experience, and professional ethics plays a critical role in upholding the success, or failure, of the disclosure regime.

Presenters from Professional Geoscientists Ontario will cover the ethical obligations of professional geoscientists, including procedures when practitioners fail in their duty to uphold or protect the public interest. Members from the CIM Best Practice Committee will discuss recent updates to the best practice guidance documents for mineral exploration and estimation of mineral resources and mineral reserves. Securities regulators will present findings from recent compliance reviews, particularly disclosure of mineral resource estimates in technical reports.

Craig Waldie, Ontario Securities Commission
James Whyte, Ontario Securities Commission
Reno Pressacco, CIM Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve Best Practices Committee
John Ryder, Chair, Professional Geoscientists Ontario
