Common Reference Framework Working Group


 The Common Reference Framework Working Group is designed to assess The Open Group’s Exploration, Mining, Metals and Minerals (EMMM) industry models as an overview of the business functions and processes of a mining organization from prospecting to the corporate financial statement. The purpose is to establish it as a common industry model through the publication of a user’s guideline outlining its use and application.


Review the EMMM Forum industry model as a reference framework, update it with increased mining input, and share how these documents can be useful tools for industry stakeholders.
