Logical Consistency On the company website, Indochine Mining Limited holds 12 concessions in Ratanakiri province. In contrast, some sources reported the number of concessions up to 19; out of this number, 5 concessions were reportedly located in Kratie, 1 in Stung Treng and 13 in Ratanakiri. Like Indochine Mining, the website of Angkor Gold Corp lists only 7 concessions, instead of 8 concessions, by excluding the one in Siempang project.
Completeness This interactive map contains all of the data that is currently available to ODC and is not exhaustive. Projects or areas with publicly known boundaries are mapped as polygons; those without publicly known boundaries are represented as dots on the map. The dots are placed in the center of the closest known geographical area and thus do not represent exact locations. The development landscape is constantly changing, and there are also additional developments for which data is not available. While ODC takes every effort to ensure that the details in this map are accurate and up to date, some of the projects or areas marked on the map may have since been modified or cancelled since the map was published. Moreover, additional developments may have been approved that are not yet included here.
Process Step Available data was collected from many sources by ODC’s mappers such as government documents, news, company profiles, NGO reports and other publications in pdf and shapefile formats. The data in pdf format was then transformed to shapefile format by geo referencing, and digitizing. The data in shapefile then transformed to SQLITE format was finally exported to DB_TABLE, and WMS that can download as KML, Shapefile and GEOJSON files.
