A number of scandals have scarred the Canadian mining industry over the years. In the 1990s, the impact of the Bre-X fraud led to a significant decrease in the public's confidence towards the industry and consequently to a drastic reduction of financing. As a response to foment investment once again, Canadian authorities developed codes and regulations to ensure that the public receives accurate and timely information from mining companies listed on stock exchanges within Canada.
This course is a high-level review of the Canadian codes and regulations. As part of the course, you will learn about:
- the important role Canada plays in raising and spending capital around the world,
- the reasons why these codes and regulations where put in place,
- how the Canadian codes compare to international ones, and
- how the National Instrument 43-101 (the Instrument) and the codes are used in conjunction with other instruments to ensure proper and timely disclosure.
We will also review practical aspects of the Instrument, and look at good and bad examples of its application. Student participation is encouraged as we work through the real-life examples and identify problems with non-compliant disclosures.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- explain the purpose of the Instrument,
- know where to look for critical information within public disclosures, and
- critically read press releases and technical reports to see if they conform with the Instrument.
Who Should Attend?
This course is aimed at an international audience of mining professionals (including geologists, explorationists, and engineers) that work at mines owned by Canadian mining companies who need to understand why project disclosure for Canadian-listed miners is important. It is also relevant for regulators, mining analysts, mineral economists, and anyone wanting to understand more about best practice project disclosure, and what to watch out for when critically reviewing an NI 43-101 report issued by a Canadian-listed mining company.
Prior to the course, registered delegates have access to the online e-learning material on Edumine. Students are strongly encouraged to work through the online course Mineral Project Reporting Under NI 43-101.
