Mineral Deposits » Company Gold Reserves

MineFund.com maintains a database of projects reporting gold or gold equivalent reserves that meet JORC, NI 43-101, SAMREC or SME standards. The database represents declared reserves of ~1.2 billion ounces representing an estimated 94-7% of all known gold reserves.

Understanding mineral resources and reserves

Mineral resources are classified according to a level of geological knowledge and confidence. They ascend in importance from inferred resources, to indicated resources, to measured resources. Click the image at left for a simple illustration.

Proven and probable reserves are declared when modifying factors (mining, metallurgical, economic, social, marketing, legal, environmental, governmental) are applied to a project, and from which it can be determined that the minerals are capable of being extracted for a profit.

For an overview of basic mineral economics for investors, please see my presentation from a recent workshop.
