Introduction to the JORC Code

Course Leader: Mr Mark Berry, Derisk Geomining



Monday 29 April 2019, morning session



James Cook University, Townsville Campus

1 x half-day course

The JORC Code sets out the requirements for public reporting of exploration and mining information, however its scope is much broader than this. It sets out standards, recommendations and guidelines to assist geologists, mining engineers and other technical staff to establish sound processes for data collection; quality control and assurance; analysis; interpretation and estimation of Exploration Targets, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves; and reporting of all of these activities. The Checklist of Assessment and Reporting Criteria (Table 1) is a valuable tool for all technical staff contributing to exploration and mining, from new graduates to experienced veterans.

This half-day course is designed for anyone new to the JORC Code, including early career geoscientists, and geoscience and engineering students considering a career in the resources industry. Other technical and non-technical professionals who wish to develop an understanding of the Code are also welcome to attend.

The course will provide an overview of the Code and illustrate how Table 1 can be used to guide day-to-day work flows and procedures in exploration and mining. It will also introduce the concept of the Competent Person.

Mark Berry is a geologist with over 38 years’ experience, spanning exploration, feasibility and development, mine operations, management, research and development, consulting, and professional development.
