The workshop will consist on the presentation of the most recent 1:5 M scale Tectonic Map of Africa (TMA), which is a result of a number of years of meetings and workshops mainly held in Africa and most of them were sponsored by UNESCO with the support of the Council for Geoscience and other organisations.

WS9: Seismotectonics and seismic hazards in Africa.THIS WORKSHOP HAS CHANGED INTO A “SCIENTIFIC SESSION” S4.6. PLEASE SEE “Scientific Program”.
A new workshop is offered instead (Venmyn Company)
WS9: “Definition of a Resource”. Leader: Andy Clay
The workshop will use a practical example to discuss how geologists define a resource. Attendees will be asked to determine resource ounces from an example stratigraphic column of a tabular orebody and discuss the mining method most appropriate for a particular orebody. Following from this, attendees will discuss what the valuation consequences are for their decisions to include or exclude waste material or adopt a particular mining method. This workshop provides attendees with an insight on how a techno-economic assessment of exploration results is performed, and is suitable for those interested in determining what the mining and financial implications are of exploration results. The workshop is presented by Venmyn, a company which is well known for drawing up companies’ Resource and Reserve and Valuation Statements.
