Tecoma Director and SAMCODES Standards Committee (SSC) Chair Matt Mullins will be speaking on Global Mineral Resource and Valuation Reporting Standards at the Minex Central Asia Forum in Astana, Kazakhstan next week.
With Kazakhstan being the newest member of the Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO), Matt will be discussing the Evolution, Convergence, and Effectiveness of reporting codes both in South Africa and globally. There will be particular focus on the current organisation and effectiveness of the SSC.
SAMCODES comprises the Minerals Reporting Code (SAMREC), the Mineral Valuation Code (SAMVAL) and the Oil and Gas Reporting Code, and these, together with the SSC relationship with the Johannesburg Securities Exchange, will be critically described.
As SSC Chair, Matt oversees this broad-based industry committee, which is tasked to develop, maintain, administer, ensure compliance with and promote the South African Codes.
To further strengthen the Kazakhstan reporting codes and their relationship with the South African and international versions, Matt will be meeting with key representatives from CRIRSCO, the Kazakhstan Reporting Code (KAZRC) Association, the Kazakhstan Stock Exchange (KASE), and the South African Ambassador to Kazakhstan.
