Welcome to the second podcast in our Fresh Thinking from the World of Mining podcast series.
This week Ian Glacken, our Director of Geology, talks with Adam Mullett about Reasonable Prospects of Eventual Economic Extraction (RPEEE), and why the principle is critical to reporting resources.
The podcast at a glance:
0:48 What is RPEEE?
1:33 Why do we need to have RPEEE as part of all the reporting codes?
2:28 The codes are there to protect investors – reporting the right information to investors is critical
3:19 What has changed from the versions of JORC 2004 to 2012?
4:28 RPEEE has also been controversial because of its inconsistent application
5:34 Why is the principle not being applied everywhere?
6:38 What is the approach for open pit mines for RPEEE?
7:45 How does RPEEE apply to underground mines?
8:56 Are there any differences between how the RPEEE has been applied in the JORC, SAMREC and CIM codes?
