Technical reports keep track of company specific milestones and data that reveal the characteristics of a mining project. Companies disclose a technical report when they complete their first mineral resource estimate, a preliminary economic assessment, a mineral reserve, and/or any time there is a material change to any of the previously mentioned events. 

These reports are extremely useful and contain valuable information such as: 

  • Drill Results
  • Property History
  • Mineral Reserves
  • Mining Methods 
  • Recovery Methods 
  • Project Infrastructure 
  • Market Studies and Contracts
  • Environmental Studies
  • Permitting and Social 
  • Community Impact 
  • Capital and Operating Costs 
  • Economic Analysis 

However, this information is buried deep in electronic documents. Prospector brings the data from these technical reports to subscribers' fingertips quickly with a searchable database to reveal the patterns of global mining investment.
