1 AMSZ AGM 2014 NYANGA 29 AUGUST 2014 WAYNE D. SILUNDE MINE SURVEYOR ( UNKI MINES) 1 IMPORTANT! THE ROLE OF THE MINE SURVEYOR IN PLATINUM ORE RESERVE DETERMINATION

2 SURVEY RESPONSIBILITIES TODAY 2 amsz2014agm Generic Surface Operations Underground Operations Reporting Technology

3 SURVEY RESPONSIBILITIES TODAY – Technology 3 The speed of technology…..

4 LEGACY OBJECTIVES 4 amsz2014agm PURPOSE – Re-establish Survey as the Knowledge Base through Mine Analysis Implementation of system tools to facilitate business appreciation and understanding (Basic Mining Equation, Basic Waste Equation, Basic Tonnage Equation, BRE, Inventory Management & Benchmarking) – Become a versatile source of information Re-establish the Mine Surveyor as a critical component of the Mine Management Team – Raise the STATUS of Survey on the Mines and as a profession. – Reclaim the AUTHORITY of the Surveyor on the Operations

5 AREAS OF CONCERN 5 amsz2014agm – Raise the STATUS of Mine Surveyor on the Mine Value Chain !! – Poor adherence to Standards and Safety Inventory Management Standard Layouts and Sections, Legal Notifications, Working areas (Raises, General Offices) – Poor adoption of Technology long periods of conversion – Poor Quality of Plans CGMS Plans, Production Plans, Surface plans

6 THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES 6 amsz2014agm ETHICS Mine Surveyors have an obligation to themselves, their survey colleagues and to their employer, to uphold and advance the integrity, honour, and dignity of the mine Surveyors' profession by: Using their knowledge and skill for the benefit of their employer; Being honest and impartial, and serving with fidelity their employers, the government and their clients; Striving to increase the competence and prestige of the mine Surveyors' profession; and Supporting the professional and technical societies of their disciplines. ( AMSZ, PLATO, IMSSA, SAIMM)

7 THE ROLE OF THE MINE SURVEYOR IN PLATINUM ORE RESERVE DERTEMINATION 7 amsz2014agm Figure 2—The interrelationship of increasing certainty and project value with advancing development stages and the level of technical study (after Lilford, 2011)

8 - Overbreak on Hangwall and footwall (cm) - Sliping on Hangwall or Footwall (Tips, Underpass) % - Reef in Hangwall or footwall ( % of content) - Scaling - Fall Of ground ( % of resource volume) - Redevelopment Factors (M) - Off Reef mining loss (% of Resource area) - Reef Tonnes extracted / Waste Tonnes extracted (% of reef horizon that’s removed from UG) - Extracted reef/waste tonnes to concentrator ( % volume trammed remainder goes to waste dump) - Temporarily not Available-TNA (% of TNA vs IMS) - In Stope Pillars (m ) - Discrepancy affect content and grade and not tonmes -Mine Call Factor (%, only affects tonnes not content) 8 amsz2014agm B Modifying Factors

9 MINERAL RESOURCE CONVERTION TO RESERVE PROCESS 9 amsz2014agm Figure 1—General relationship between Exploration Results, Mineral Resources, and Mineral Reserves (SAMREC, 2009)

10 Compliance and reporting rules in Mineral Resource Evaluation : 10 amsz2014agm PURPOSE A-Reporting codes B-Competency requirements C-Resources and Reserves

11 Reporting Codes Joint Ore Reserves Committee Code (JORC Code) - Australia National Instrument (NI ) - Canada South African Code for the Reporting of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (SAMREC) – South Africa These codes are broadly related Committee Code (JORC Code), and the South African Code for the Reporting of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (SAMREC are the general standards.. we will focus on the SAMREC code 11 amsz2014agm A

12 - Qualification ( Survey C. Competence, ND in Mine Survey, HND in Mine Survey, B.Tech Mine Survey) - Experience ( > 5 years in the deposit under consideration) - Professional registration ( Plato, Saimm) - Adherence to national and international standards ( The Codes) 12 amsz2014agm B COMPETENT PERSONS

13 How To Improve and stay relevant 13 amsz2014agm PURPOSE Embracing technological advancement  Laser Scanners, total stations, gyroscopes.  Profiling instruments GeospatialPlatform  Build technical decisional views  Maintaining strategic and technical reporting requirements  Image processing  Contouring  Batch processing and modelling GISSuite  Presentation  Visualisation  Spatial analysis  Data capturing and cleansing  Topology and data structure management Adopting Capable software packages  Cads mine, Stopecad, Valcan, Surpac,Microstation, Histogrames  Depletion
