DEFINITION
  • That part of a Mineral Resource for which tonnage, densities, shape, physical characteristics, grade and mineral content can be estimated in part with a reasonable level of confidence and in part with a low level of confidence. It is based on exploration, sampling and testing information gathered through appropriate techniques from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes. The locations are in places too widely or inappropriately spaced to confirm geological and/or grade continuity but are spaced closely enough for continuity to be assumed, and in other places of limited or of uncertain quality and reliability.
