One of the key audit matters that were highlighted by the Auditors of the company “Grant Thornton Audit Pty Ltd” for the financial year was the with regards to the AASB 6 which provides the standards for the Exploration for and Evaluation of Mineral Resources. As per the standard, the company is required to evaluate at each financial year ending, if there are any triggers/ circumstances for impairment of assets which may suggest that the carrying value is in excess of the recoverable value. The process undertaken by management to assess whether there are any impairment triggers in each area of interest involves an element of management judgement. In response to this Key Audit Matter (KAM), the auditors have conducted a detailed review of management’s assessment of trigger events prepared in accordance with AASB 6, which included, tracing the project to a third party signed agreement to ensure whether the right to tenement existed; performing an enquiry of management regarding their intentions to carry out exploration and evaluation activity in the relevant exploration area, including review of management’s cash-flow forecast models and budgeted expenditure; understanding whether any data exists to suggest that the carrying value of these exploration and evaluation assets are unlikely to be recovered through development or sale; and lastly reviewing the appropriateness of the related disclosures within the financial statements.
