The JSE maintains Reader’s Panels which review all Competent Persons Reports and Mineral Asset Valuation Reports submitted to the JSE Limited. Such reports are reviewed for compliance with the JSE Listing Requirements that incorporate the relevant SAMCODES, and any other code recognised by the JSE for secondary listings, if required. Members of the Reader’s Panels are appointed by the JSE, based on submissions through the SSC and are recognised experts in the commodity and deposit under consideration.
If you would like to be considered for a position on the JSE Readers Panel, please send your (comprehensive) CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 November 2023. To find out more about the JSE Monitoring of Reporting Standards, please look at https://www.samcode.co.za/regulatory/stock-exchange.

Following the successful “Implications of S-K 1300 regulations and disclosures for dual-listed companies on the JSE and NYSE” workshop and outcomes arising, the S-K 1300 Forum site is open to participants of the previous workshop to share material and ideas based on feedback after the first cycle of S-K 1300 reporting from the SEC. There is a Q&A and repository of all the webinar key learnings and developments. The major themes and flagged topics from the forum will inform a follow-up annual webinar and possible engagements with the SEC for the benefit of our local mining industry affected and impacted by the S-K 1300 regulations.
This forum does not constitute legal advice, it is a collection of opinions from various professionals involved in the mining industry and the SSC does not accept responsibility for individual comments.

Attracting finance for exploration and mining ventures is a critical part of the resource business environment today, and there are a number of finance options available, including accessing private equity. With the increase in the number of non-listed (private) companies and individuals seeking to obtain financial assistance, it is important to appreciate that issues of public reporting are not confined to listed companies only. Under all circumstances, if Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and/or Mineral Reserves are reported publically (as defined in the SAMREC Code of 2016), and if said report is claimed to have been compiled in accordance with any of the SAMREC, SAMVAL or SAMOG Codes, then the report and the author are subject to the minimum standards and requirements of the relevant Code as well as the complaints procedure of the SAMCODES Standards Committee (SSC).
SAMREC Code Clause 3:
Public Reports are reports prepared for the purpose of informing investors or potential investors and their advisers on Exploration Results, Mineral Resources or Mineral Reserves. They include, but are not limited to, annual and quarterly company reports, press releases, information memoranda, technical papers, website postings and public presentations.
These Public Reports may be in printed or electronic media (including social media) and will include JSE circulars, reports as required by the Companies Act and reports for other regulatory authorities or as required by law.
Public Reporting refers to any documentation which may find its way into the public domain. It refers not only to reporting or documentation by companies listed on a Securities Exchange, but also includes documents compiled by/for private companies or individuals.
While every effort has been made within the Code to cover most situations likely to be encountered in Public Reporting, there may be occasions when doubt exists as to the appropriate form of disclosure. On such occasions, users of the Code and those compiling reports to comply with the Code should be guided by its intent, which is to provide a minimum standard for Public Reporting and the guidelines of materiality, transparency and competence, and to ensure that such reporting contains all information which stakeholders, interested parties, investors and their professional advisers would reasonably require, and reasonably expect to find in the report, for the purpose of making of a reasoned and balanced judgment regarding the Exploration Results, Mineral Resources or Mineral Reserves being reported.
