Over the year, the letter of the policy has dwarfed the spirt of the policy, which was to  provide the average investor with information to make an informed investor decision. To day, most NI-43-101 are very technical and cannot be understood by the most knowledgeable investors. From the company's point of view, the harsh reality is  that if  investors do not understand the report they will not invest.This situation hurts the investors and the companies and has caused much confusion and resulted in many questions. Examples of this  imbalance will be discussed  along with many  frequently asked questions about NI-43-101.
