Subject: Draft Revised UNFC-2008 and Draft Accompanying Explanatory Note From: Geoscience Australia

13 February 2009

Dear Colleagues

Comments from Geoscience Australia on the latest Draft UNFC-2008 and Draft Explanatory Note are available to view

As stated in the attached comments, Geoscience Australia considers the latest version of UNFC-2008 to be improved and easier to understand compared to the previous versions although additional modifications would enhance consistent application and the transfer of resource categories between different mineral resource systems.

We hope that you will find our comments helpful in making UNFC-2008 ultimately achieve its objective of becoming a useful tool at the international level for comparing mineral resources from different resource classification schemes.

Best regards

Ian Lambert
