This publication looks at some of the main accounting issues across mining companies. It considers currently effective standards and notes future developments that could impact accounting in the sector. It also discussed the IFRS conversion project as a whole, including the importance of the conversion management process, and considers the impact of IFRS conversion across an organization. While the main audience of this publication is those contemplating IFRS conversion, we hope that there is something stimulating and thought-provoking for all those dealing with IFRS in the mining sector.
