• Market developments are defining the dynamics of growth for mining companies in what may be the 'post boom' era.

    The prolonged period of strong demand and very high commodities prices has ended – against this backdrop growth continues to be a function of outbound expansion and inbound investment.

This is resulting in a range of challenges for the mining industry. KPMG helps organisations and people to discover new ideas to grow and manage risk, and to deliver fundamentally better results through different ways of operating.

We offer global connectivity through 14 dedicated Mining Centres in key locations, including Australia, that work to deliver commercially astute solutions across all aspects of a mining business’s strategy – growth, performance, assurance, sustainability and integrated tax.

Understanding complex policies

Finding risk capital

Finding risk capital to invest into a high cost environment for new projects, particularly as the exchange rate starts to move around.

Preparing for increased automation
