Friday Seminar: QA/QC for Exploration and Mining (Post-Seminar On Demand Registrations still being accepted)

Face-to-Face, Live Streamed and Post-Seminar On Demand
Presented by the AIG (Qld Branch)

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
• For different geoscientific data sets – what are the QA/QC issues to consider
• 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

At the completion of the seminar there will be a complimentary networking drinks/nibbles function to continue the discussion on the joys of QA/QC!
