In an environment of increasing accountability, the Association of Exploration Geochemists has taken the initiative to develop international standards for writing geochemical reports.

The guidelines are applicable for the preparation of early-phase exploration geochemical surveys and are directed toward geologists and geochemists who write reports for distribution to joint venture partners, regulatory authorities or within a corporation. The guidelines focus on preparation of a report that provides a systematic and permanent record of the work performed. The underlying premise is that a reader must be able to confirm the interpretations of the writer particularly with regard to definition of areas prospective for mineralization.

Additional copies of the 38-page booklet are available at a cost of US$15 for members (all members should have received one in the mail, at no cost) and US$20 for non-members. A digital version has been purchased by several major international corporations for internal distribution, usually posted on their intra-nets, and can be acquired at a cost of US $100.
