Mining risk and assurance: A survival strategy 

Faced with falling commodity demand and prices and rising input costs, mining companies are experiencing declining margins. A series of major project failures has also put risk management under the microscope, with the further threat of labor unrest, political uncertainty and changing regulations.

This webcast discusses the recently launched KPMG Global Mining Institute paper, Mining risk and assurance: A survival strategy, which analyzes the following eight key drivers of value and their associated risks:


  1. Strategy
  2. Sustainability
  3. Quality growth through major projects
  4. Operational excellence and profitability
  5. Regulatory compliance
  6. IT strategy
  7. Reputation and ethics
  8. Taxation
