Friday Seminar: QA/QC for Exploration and Mining

QA/QC is an essential part of our role as geoscientists to ensure the data we collect is fit for purpose. It covers all data we collect, not just sampling and analytical data. This Friday Seminar will present a range of talks covering QA/QC procedures, systems, and best practice, including case studies across exploration and mining. Topics will include:
• Why QA/QC is not just about sampling and analysis
• Data from handheld/airborne/UAV systems, scanning technologies, digital photogrammetry, geophysical surveys, etc – What are the QA/QC issues and is it fit-for-purpose?
• Sampling and analytical QA/QC systems, including a commercial laboratory perspective
• Geological database QC systems and integrity
• QA/QC issues to consider when estimating Mineral Resources
• Case studies from exploration and mine operations
