IFRS Briefing Sheet 207: Stripping Costs: Surface mine production phase 

This IFRS Briefing Sheet summarises Draft Interpretation DI/2010/1 Stripping Costs in the Production Phase of a Surface Mine published by the IASB on 26 August 2010.

The key proposals are:

  • production stripping costs that meet certain criteria would be capitalised as a component of the larger asset to which they relate
  • subsequent to initial recognition, the component would be recognised at cost less depreciation/amortisation and less any impairment losses
  • the period of depreciation/amortisation would be based on the expected useful life of the specific section of ore body that becomes directly accessible as a result of the stripping activities.


Comments were due to the IFRS Interpretations Committee by 30 November 2010.
