M&M Team sponsors in-house mining trainings

The Mining and Metals Working Group (M&M Team) recently conducted trainings for engagement teams handling clients in the mining and metals sector. The M&M Team’s co-head and Assurance partner Len Layug welcomed the participants to the workshops, emphasizing that the trainings were organized as part of ongoing initiatives to enhance the Firm’s expertise and our people’s capabilities in the mining and metals sector.

Tagged as Mining 101, the first workshop which was held at the STI Holdings Center, served as an introduction to the mining and metals industry. An overview of the different phases of a mine operation and the basic concepts and theories relevant to the industry were discussed during the one-day affair. The second workshop, dubbed as Mining 201, was held at the WSDC. The course focused on the accounting and auditing considerations in the mining and metals industry. Participants were given the opportunity to share and raise issues based on their actual client exposure.
