SEC Regulation S-K 1300 and other regulatory codes often make reference to industry-accepted or
industry best practices as being precedents that Qualified Persons should be aware of, and
consider, when preparing scientific and technical information for public disclosure.
The attached document below provides a list of publicly-available texts and publications that can provide
examples of industry-accepted practices. Most from the Society of Mining, Metallurgy and
Exploration (SME) and the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) will require
purchase; however, a number of the publications under “Other References” can be downloaded
from the internet.
