Executives of Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited (“WGM”) will be presenting back to back seminar’s in this falls line-up of international mining conferences. On September 12th, Mr. Joe Hinzer, WGM President, will be presenting a paper at the China Gold Congress and Forum to be held in Beijing, China. Titled “Understanding and Managing Geological Risk”, Mr. Hinzer’s presentation will explore the inherent uncertainties of defining and quantifying economic gold mineralization.
“Mining is an inherently risky business, made all the riskier by the relative unknowns surrounding the definition of the mineral asset,” comments Mr. Hinzer, adding, “A prudent approach to understanding and mitigating geological risk is one that takes a dynamic view to defining the geological model. It is never static – constantly evolving based on newer information and insights throughout the mining life cycle.”
