Note from the Consultants Society Chair

John Dunlop FAusIMM(CP)

Following on from our most recent projects – the Consultant’s Handbook webinars and involvement in AusIMM’s Social Responsibility Framework, and upcoming ESG forum and training course, I bring news of our next project.

This will be focused on feasibility studies – at all of the stages we all recognise – as set out in the JORC Code and several AusIMM handbooks.

The aim is to roll out, in phases, Guidelines for Feasibility Studies and an associated Feasibility Study training course, similarly structured to the JORC and VALMIN courses, which have been a great success already. We are aiming to deliver both these elements before the end of this year. Later phases will depend on how far it is decided that the Guidelines be formalised or expanded in some way.

The proposal for the project is currently going through the Policy & Advocacy Committee, but in the meantime, the training course is being organised under a Consultants Society team led by Paul Harper, with the assistance of the AusIMM Online Courses team, who have successfully developed other courses on JORC and VALMIN.

Hopefully, we can bring you more information about this much needed addition to our policy area in our next newsletter.
