About the Online Professional Certificate in JORC Code Reporting

The Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (‘the JORC Code’) is a professional code of practice that sets minimum standards for public reporting of minerals exploration results, mineral resources and ore reserves.

Alongside leading experts in the mining industry, AusIMM has developed the Online Professional Certificate in JORC Code Reporting for resources professionals to understand how to report effectively and in accordance with the JORC Code. The interactive, online format of the course will provide participants with an opportunity to learn in a community-based environment from wherever they are situated – in the office, on a mine site, at home or at the airport.

Note: This course does not enable a practitioner to qualify as a Competent Person. All the criteria as specified in the JORC Code must still be met.

This course was developed to provide a clear explanation of the JORC code and its context, including how to successfully apply the Code in minerals reporting conditions. The case studies and group work examples should be as valuable to those considering becoming Competent Persons as to those who may need to refresh on the latest code updates, and ASX and ASIC reporting framework.
