|Page: Mining Industry Standards - How Bre-X Changed the International Reporting Standards for Mineral Resources|
In the mid-1990s, the biggest scandal of all time in the mining industry shook public confidence and negatively impacted the industry’s capacity to raise capital. Bre-X reported a mineral resource of 70,000,000 troy ounces of gold which was subsequently found to be a fraudulent claim. (Detailed information about the Bre-X scandal can be found on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bre-X.) Suddenly there was an urgent need for determining specific international mining industry standards in order to minimize the risk of a future scandal.
In response, the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) developed the CIM Definition Standards on mineral resources & mineral reserves by reference in National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101), so that all estimates of mineral resources and reserves that are publicly disclosed in Canada must use these CIM Definition Standards.
The Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO) aims to promote high standards for international public reporting of exploration results like the NI 43-101 of Canada. The members are:
