Goals of harmonization of solid mineral resources classification systems.
A b s t r a c t. There are a few substantially different regulations regarding reporting of mineral resources, which shall be followed as a result of law in force or recommendations issued by a recognized professional association. Some of them have already undergone a successful harmonization process while the remaining is subjected to intensive efforts. Majority of published papers are based on implicated assumption that harmonization is a legitimate goal on its own and does not require any justification. This article is dedicated to fulfil this gap by identifying goals of harmonization of selected mineral resources reporting systems to be applied in areas of financial markets and national accounts.
