Washington Updates
SEC begins process to update IG7

The Securities and Exchange Commission asked SME for help in finding an academic Fellow to work in Washington, D.C., and begin the rule-making process to update Industry Guide 7 for mining. The academic selected for this fellowship will work with the SEC for 12 months as it reviews the disclosure requirements for companies with significant mining operations.

SME has had an on-going, long-term dialog with the SEC regarding IG7, the federal mining disclosure policy for U.S. mining operations. We regard this effort as a high priority for promoting and protecting economic growth, innovation, competitiveness and job creation.
