Appointment to the VALMIN Committee

TAS and TAS Legal proudly announce the appointment of Ms Jay Evans-Wheeler CEO to the VALMIN Review Committee, specialising in tenure.

The VALMIN Committee is a joint committee of The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and the Australian Institute of Geoscientists with the participation of the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, the Australian Stock Exchange Limited, the Minerals Council of Australia, the Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia, the Securities Association of Australia and representatives from the Australian finance sector.

Ms Evans-Wheeler said “I am delighted to be appointed to the Committee. I believe that standing of tenure is one of the single most important aspects affecting the security and subsequent valuation of any mining or exploration venture”.

The VALMIN Committee is currently working through the comments received on the Exposure Draft revised VALMIN Code 2015, with a view to finalising the revised Code as soon as possible.

Ms Evans-Wheeler specialises in tenure management issues from a holistic viewpoint, taking into account legal, accounting, geological, operational and corporate aspects.

As General Manager Exploration with LGL (Lihir Gold), I brought in Jay Evans-Wheeler and the TAS team to help simplify and clarify tenement holdings in Cote D’Ivoire during a period of rapid governmental and social change.

The TAS team was able to get on top of the situation quickly and effectively, allowing specific processes to be implemented and management decisions to be made in an environment that had previously been largely been opaque.
