A new U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) standard drastically changes how publicly traded mining companies submit their financial filings.
The SEC’s mineral resource and reserve reporting standards, commonly referred to as S-K 1300, went into effect January 1. Any U.S. security registrant who has a mining operation which is material to their business or financial condition must adhere to these new reporting standards. They differ significantly from the previous Guide 7 reporting standards and align closer to the Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards.
