CFA Society Perth: Valuation from a Geologist’s Perspective

Published on August 12th, 2021

Join CSA Global (An ERM Group Company), for a brief presentation on ‘Valuation from a Geologists Perspective’ to be held on Thursday 26 August in Perth, Western Australia.

This high level presentation will provide an overview of the VALMIN Code, how it sits with the JORC Code and how it interacts with the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules in terms of providing a reasonable basis for an estimate of value associated with exploration projects.

The second half of the presentation will be set aside for Q&A about the presentation, or about valuing exploration projects.

Key Takeaways:

  • JORC and VALMIN Codes work together, when reporting on mineral assets
  • Stages of project maturity, and the associated risks
  • Exploration can be high risk, understanding the context of a VALMIN report can help manage this risk
  • Traps & pitfalls in practical situations
  • Questions to ask your VALMIN (and JORC) technical expert.

This event is complementary for all CFA Society Perth full members and at half price for Candidate Members.

Discount codes are emailed out separately or contact mona.basso@cfas.org.au for more information.  To join candidate membership, please see more information here.
