SEC Proposes Overhaul of Mining Disclosures
30 June 2016
View Client Update
On June 16, 2016, the SEC proposed a complete overhaul of the disclosure requirements for registered companies that engage in mining activities.
Key changes include the clarification of materiality standards for disclosure, required disclosure of mineral resources and exploration results, and the requirement that every disclosure is based upon the work of a "qualified person" liable under the Securities Act for omissions and untrue statements in the disclosure filings.
The proposed rule aligns U.S. mining disclosure regulation with industry and global standards and will likely increase the amount of information mining companies must disclose.
