Derisk will run a full day workshop at the Mining Geology 2019 conference being held in Perth. The conference will run from 25-26 November with the workshop, titled “Geological risk in mining: Why everyone needs to understand and manage it better”, being held on 24 November.

This workshop will identify and assess the sources of geological uncertainty that feed into mineral resource and ore reserve estimates. Case studies demonstrating geological risks and implications from pit to port, including financial costs will be presented, together with risk management and communication strategies to assist geologists to convey geological uncertainty.

Geological information contributes to all stages of exploration, feasibility, development, mine operations and closure, including estimates of ore reserves, project capital/operating costs and therefore mine profitability.

This information is used by both technical and non-technical staff, company management and the board, and external parties; but almost everything geologists deliver to their stakeholders are estimates and interpretations, rather than facts. The workshop will focus on how geologists can effectively communicate the fundamental uncertainties and risks associated with their estimates and interpretations, whilst emphasising why these risks so important.
