On Monday, March 26, we conducted our first business meeting with one of the leading geological experts in Russia, Grigoriy Malukhin. He is the chairman of the Russian Society of Subsoil Use Experts (OERN), a member of the Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO) and an expert for the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). As part of our meeting with him, we outlined the principles of cooperation between our project and experts in the fields of geology and mining, both in Russia and internationally. We also discussed questions of methodology and organization for the expert evaluation of projects on our platform.
A key theme that emerged from our discussion is the future collaborative partnership between our platform and OERN. Very soon, we will sign an official agreement which will solidify the cooperative relationship among our organizations.
Mr. Mulakhin will provide our project with his professional advice on the creation of an expert project evaluation network. It is our hope that this undertaking will become one of the essential aspects of our platform.
OERN’s contact information and a description of their role in our project will soon appear in the “partners” section of our website.
