The International Institute of Mineral Appraisers (IIMA) is the SME branch focused on valuations and appraisals of mines and mineral properties.  Both the IIMA and SME adhere to and promote the Valuation Standards, also provided here, when performing valuations and appraisals.  This educational resource is to supply access to the IIMA website and 16 of their SME Annual Conference papers on valuation and appraisal topics.  An example paper is below in video format along with 15 additional papers on Valuation and Appraising Content, Methodology, Discount Factor and Case History.  Eventually, all IIMA papers will be available to SME members and public.  (The papers reflect the opinions of the authors and not the IIMA or SME.)
