Technical Reports

Mining companies require independent technical reports for many reasons; they may be needed by financiers to support equity or debt investment for regulatory purposes such as a new listing or in order to support technical disclosure. They are known by various names in different jurisdictions:

  • Qualified Person’s Reports-Canada
  • Competent Person’s Reports-America/Australia/UK
  • Mineral Expert’s Reports-SE Asia, Russia
Detailed knowledge of the requirements for technical reports within different jurisdictions is essential for preparing a report that does not create regulatory issues. DMT Geosciences staff have prepared many such reports across many jurisdictions and a wide range of mineral commodities and oil & gas projects. We work closely with members of the Canadian Securities Administrators the TSX to ensure our reports are fully compliant. Much of the work involves preparing reports for listed company transactions or listings. These reports are required to conform to the Canadian Securities Administrator’s Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, which consists of National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, Form 43-101F1 and Companion Policy 43-101CP.
