Admitted in a ceremony at CRIRSCO’ s eleventh annual meeting held in Jogjakarta, Indonesia becomes the eleventh member – joining Australasia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Western Europe, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, South Africa and the US. Indonesia’s national reporting organisation, KOMBERS, is a committee made up of the Indonesian Society of Geologists (IAGI) and the Association of Indonesian Mining Professionals (PERHAPI).

To meet the membership requirements, KOMBERS developed the Komite Cadangan Mineral Indonesian (KCMI) Code 2017 as the reporting code compliant with the CRIRSCO Template, according to CRIRSCO chairman Ian Goddard.

“KOMBERS also established procedures for the registration of Competent Persons in Indonesia, and put in place a Code of Ethics with provisions for disciplining the members of IAGI and PERHAPI,” says Goddard.

In other progress at this CRIRSCO meeting, many potential new members – including India, China, Philippines, Turkey and the Kyrgyz Republic – outlined their progress in meeting membership criteria. The aim of the organisation is to help the mining industry earn and maintain investor trust by promoting high standards of reporting of mineral resources and reserves, and of exploration results.
