To put the fun back into this wait ,if it ever was, I am proposing a gold pool. Official opening tomorrow and ending February 20,2013 for the person who can come closest in choses in the following categoriesas it relates to the Snowden report. One guess per moniker, basher included.
The categories are
IMR Inferred Mineral Resource is that part of a mineral resource for which tonnage, grade and mineral content can be estimated with a low level of confidence. It is inferred from geological evidence and assumed but not verified geological/or grade continuity. It is based on information gathered through appropriate techniques from location such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes which may be of limited or uncertain quality and reliability. IMR
IDR Indicated resources are simply economic mineral occurrences that have been sampled (from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits and drillholes) to a point where an estimate has been made, at a reasonable level of confidence, of their contained metal, grade, tonnage, shape, densities, physical characteristics.
MR Measured resources are indicated resources that have undergone enough further sampling that a 'competent person' (defined by the norms of the relevant mining code; usually a geologist) has declared them to be an acceptable estimate, at a high degree of confidence, of the grade, tonnage, shape, densities, physical characteristics and mineral content of the mineral occurrence.
All three categories and the winner for each will receive congratulation from us. One overall winner will be chosen closest to the numbers in all three category and I will donate 50 dollar to make a Wish foundation on their behalf. Sorry I not that rich yet.
