CIM president Chris Twigge-Molecey recently made a stop in the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator to meet with members of the newly formed Mongolian Mining Club, faculty and staff members from the Mongolian University of Science and Technology’s School of Mining Engineering, as well as its Mining Institute, a semi-independent research and consulting body.

Following a presentation by Twigge-Molecey on CIM, its activities and future plans, the group sat down to discuss potential ways of collaborating. “They showed a particular interest in collaborating on the reconciliation of their reserve and resource standards (which are based on the Russian approach) with JORC and NI 43-101, and they want to understand how to set up a QP qualification,” he said. “Additionally, we discussed CSR and how, in Canada, we reconcile the interests of the local communities with those of the mining companies, which is also a big issue there.”
