Mining and Metals

In spite of the global recession which temporarily put the brakes on the growth of the mining and resource sectors, the long term prospects remain strong as population growth, increased urbanization and the economic growth of emerging markets underpin the demand for both natural resources including commodities, energy, precious metals and gemstones.

Dedicated professionals with a high degree of practical, technical and commercial expertise provide a wide range of risk and assurance, corporate advisory and taxation services by clearly understanding the challenges faced by companies in this sector. The sector is also faced with the increased challenges of changing expectations in the maintenance of its social license to operate, skills shortages, effectively executing capital projects and meeting government revenue expectations.

Key issues in today’s mining and metals environment include:

  • Business risks facing the mining and metals sector
  • Major trends in transactions and financing
  • Competing for growth in the steel sector
  • Resource nationalism
  • Sustainable Cost Reduction in the Mining Sector
  • Complying with regulatory & reporting requirements
  • Addressing sustainability issues
