Sampling & QAQC

Appropriate Sampling and QA/QC is essential in all aspects of the evaluation process, to ensure the best estimates are achieved; the quality of an estimate is dependent on the quality of the data used.

Approach

SRK have experienced personnel who can audit, review and advise on quality control procedures in addition to data review during all project phases.

When reviewing QA/QC data, SRK would typically consider two defined areas: review of the QA/QC procedures in place, and review of the QA/QC database.

SRK's experienced consultants review existing sampling protocols or advise on the appropriate sampling strategy taking into account both theoretical and practical implications of sampling techniques.

Using a combination of analytical techniques and drawing upon their broad experience of best practise, SRK's experts are capable of drawing pertinent conclusions and making recommendations to clients to ensure compliance with international reporting codes.

SRK understands the importance of a managed QA/QC programme for all projects, ensuring data quality which forms the basis for all Resource Estimates.

Experience

SRK's resource consultants have extensive experience in reviewing of QA/QC data from all project stages, and have experience in advising and setting up of site and regional sampling protocols and associated QA/QC programmes. SRK has undertaken a number of projects managing electronic data capture, validation and management of QA/QC databases to ensure compliance with international reporting codes.
