HOW WELL ARE YOU TREATING YOUR DATA?
Successful exploration programmes generate vast quantities of data. The critical decisions made throughout the LOM are based upon the data collected and underpins all critical decisions from infill drilling, to mine planning and financial studies.
In many cases, there is a disconnect between the amount of money spent, attention paid to an exploration programme, and the treatment of the data collected. If data are not stored correctly, data integrity is negatively impacted, which can lower the confidence and the value in the asset and increase project risk.
International reporting codes such as JORC, SAMREC, CIM and PERC require information about data collection procedures, checks on data accuracy and database integrity.
Projects with gaps in data management may have difficulties in reaching Measured or Indicated Resource Classification or may be detrimentally affected by data integrity problems throughout the project life.
