That portion of the identified resource from which a usable mineral and energy commodity can be economically and legally extracted at the time of determination.
That part of a resource that can be mined at a profit under current or reasonably anticipated economic conditions which are specified. In addition to the information required for a resource estimate, the technical, operating, legal and financial factors must be considered in a reserve estimate.
Part of a resource for which economic viability has been demonstrated at a confidence level which would justify a commitment to major expenditures.
Portion of a resource for which technical and economic factors have been established at a high confidence level. The term is generally restricted to that part of a reserve which is being developed or mined, or for which there is a detailed mining plan.
The quantity of mineral demonstrated to be present and known to be economically producible.
area of land and/or sea, specially devoted to protection and conservation of biodiversity, natural and cultural resources related and managed through legislation or other efficient means.(IUCN 1994).
In the context of mineral resources, a deposit of known location and quality that is economically extractable at the present time.
The portion of a resource that has been actually discovered, outlined and measured but not yet exploited and which at present is technically and economically feasible.
A known resource that can be exploited for profit with available technology under existing political and economic conditions.
that part of a valuable mineral resource which can be extracted profitably using existing technology and under present economic conditions
That part of a mineral deposit that could be economically and legally extracted or produced at the time of the reserve determination.
a measure of metal that can be profitably mined
a resource that has been discovered and can be used under existing economic and technological conditions
the amount of a resource that is recoverable.
That amount of a resource held by the EOS Program and Project to satisfy unanticipated requirements or objectives. Source: EPO.
the amount of coal that can be mined economically
In wildland fire suppression terminology resources not assigned to a specific task, but available for assignment.
A Mineral Reserve is the economically mineable part of a Measured or Indicated Mineral Resource demonstrated by at least a Preliminary Feasibility Study. This Study must include adequate information on mining, processing, metallurgical, economic and other relevant factors that demonstrate, at the time of reporting, that economic extraction can be justified. A Mineral Reserve includes diluting materials and allowances for losses that may occur when the material is mined.
that part of a resource that can be profitably mined under current or specified economic conditions. A reserve estimate must consider all technical, operating, legal and financial factors
The calculated amount of material that can be mined from a mineral deposit, based on dense drilling and sampling and on technical assessments of minability
The economically mineable part of a measured or indicated mineral resource demonstrated by at least a preliminary feasibility study. Mineral reserves are subdivided in order of increasing confidence into probable mineral reserves and proven mineral reserves. For more information, see our annual report at cameco.com.
That part of a resource which can be legally mined and at a profit under economic conditions that are specified and are generally accepted as reasonable. Economic viability must be demonstrated by at least a preliminary feasibility study based on based on indicated and measured resources.
That part of a mineral resource that can be mined profitably.
