:: Metal Accounting Code Winning Industry Acceptance

The minerals industry now has a recognised and accepted code for accounting for metals and minerals across processing plants.

The code, which was drawn up by an industry and academic team coordinated by AMIRA and now being given widespread industry exposure and review, gives metal accounting a code with the potential to develop the same stature that JORC and SAMRAC provide for ore reserve estimation.

The code was developed with financial support from Anglo American, Anglo Platinum, BHP Billiton, Zincor (a division of Exxaro) and Rio Tinto.

Prof Peter Gaylard (AMIRA Africa) who led the code development team, now hopes that a professional body will take over the role of ongoing oversight and review of the code in the same way that AusIMM and SAIMM oversee the ore reserve codes.

A text book on the code is being edited by Dr Rob Morrison of the JKMRC, leader of the P754 research program, to support understanding and use of the metal accounting code and Prof Gaylard will be explaining it at a range of industry conferences and meetings over the coming months.
