SAMCODES


The SAMCODES, the South African Mineral Reporting Codes, set out the minimum standards, recommendations and guidelines for the Public Reporting of mineral related issues in South Africa. They currently comprise three Codes, two Guideline documents and an affiliated National Standard:

a. SAMREC: The South African Code for the Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves
b. SAMVAL: The South African Code for the Reporting of Mineral Asset Valuation
c. SAMOG: The South African Code for the Reporting of Oil and Gas Resources
d. Commodity, or subject, specific guidelines/standards:
i. SAMESG Guideline: The South African Guideline for the Reporting of Environmental, Social and Governance parameters within the mining and oil and gas industries
ii. SAMREC Diamond Guidelines: SAMREC Guideline Document for the Reporting of Diamond Exploration Results, Diamond Resources and Diamond Reserves (and other Gemstones, where Relevant)

The Council for Geoscience Field School celebrated its ten year anniversary with the successful completion of the 2015 field mapping training programme. The growth and transformation of the field school programme over the decade has been significant. Initially, the field school was designed as a two-year programme linked to the Annual Technical Programme targeting mostly recently employed geoscientists. These scientists would spend their time at the Limpopo regional office benefitting educationally from the vast economic mineral deposits of the province (for example gold, platinum and copper) and the highly complex, high-grade tectonometamorphic terrane, the Limpopo Belt. During this time, the field school participants would work on map compilations and the writing of complementary map explanations. This work was undertaken in addition to courses on microscopy, GIS and 4x4 driving, all of which would provide the participants with the vital knowledge and skills needed to ensure a successful start to their careers.

As part of a countrywide incentive driven by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) to advance and support mining in South Africa, the Council for Geoscience has proposed several projects to investigate the mineral potential of specific minerals and the general mineral potential of various target areas in an attempt to promote sustainable mining and exploration. In 2015, the CGS launched a number of DMR-funded projects, including an investigation of the mining potential of the alluvial diamond fields in the North West Province using high-resolution geophysical surveys, remote sensing data and field mapping. The project focusses on mapping and associated research to determine the origin, character, transportation, distribution and trapping of diamonds in alluvial gravel. The results from these investigations will empower the Council for Geoscience to provide informed suggestions to the local communities and miners enabling them to perform cost-effective and sustainable mining and to propose exploration methods and targets for future mining.
