Mineral Resources Mineral Reserves Committee (MRMR)

The Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (MRMR) Committee develops and defines the standards, best practices and guidelines that are intended to foster greater standardization of reporting within the public domain, specifically under NI43-101. These standards provide a benchmark for both companies and Qualified Persons in discharging their responsibilities. MRMR’s mandate is to be aware of advances in international classification, definition and reporting; maintain, update and make changes to Standards as required; undertake a program of industry and CIM member consultation prior to submitting definitions to CIM Council for approval; serve as a conduit between the industry, CIM and the CSA; and represent CIM and Canada on CRIRSCO.
