13. The maximum compensation payable from the fund for the period covering the fiscal year of the Order is $100,000 for all claims in respect of a geologist.
Where the board of directors has reasonable grounds to believe that claims in excess of that amount may be filed in respect of the same geologist, it may have an inventory drawn up of the funds and property kept in trust by the geologist and notify in writing the persons likely to file a claim. It may also suspend the payment of compensation until it has reviewed all claims concerning the geologist.
The maximum compensation is reviewed every 5 years from 31 May 2012.
