Scoping Studies


Not country specific

National Codes 

The relevant codes are used to compile the document, since resources may sometimes be declared in the conceptual or scoping stage. The relevant code is mentioned where resources are referred to.


Long form reports 


A Scoping Study is the first study that should be completed in a project, and represents a preliminary technical and economic evaluation that could include a Preliminary Assessment Statement (under National Instrument 43-101). It will define a resource and include a simple flow sheet and a description of the mining method. The resources (and, less frequently, the reserves) might be defined at this stage.
