KPMG asked the group of executives in attendance at the KPMG’s 9th Annual Mining Executive Forum (“Forum”) to rank the major risks facing the industry using a brief survey. We have framed the discussion of these key risk areas in terms of the tough questions management is facing, and should be prepared to answer. By doing so, we hope to support some of the constructive dialogue taking place in the industry as it seeks to reassert itself.
