Updated: Jun 14, 2023

MMS's Metal Accounting course provide participants with a solid foundation in the principles, practices, and techniques of Metal Accounting, preparing them for a career in the mining or metallurgical industries

MMS has been working with a top tier South African University to create a metal accounting short course which aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to accurately quantify and report the production and inventory of metal products in a mining or metallurgical operation. The specific objectives for such a course include:

  • Understanding the principles of metal accounting: participants will be able to comprehend the fundamental concepts and principles of Metal Accounting, including material balance, metal balance, and loss/gain analysis.

  • Developing technical skills: participants will develop technical skills in areas such as sampling, analytical techniques, and data analysis. They should also gain proficiency in the use of specialised software tools used for Metal Accounting.

  • Learning about industry standards and best practices: participants will be familiar with the current industry standards and best practices for Metal Accounting, including guidelines such as the AMIRA P754 code.

  • Understanding the importance of accuracy and accountability: participants will appreciate the importance of accurate Metal Accounting, both in terms of financial performance and environmental impact. They should also understand the legal and regulatory requirements for reporting metal production and inventory data.

  • Applying Metal Accounting principles to real-world scenarios: participants should be able to apply their knowledge and skills to solve real-world problems related to Metal Accounting, such as reconciling production and inventory data, identifying sources of material loss, and optimising sampling and analytical procedures.

As part of our course we also look at how technology can be leveraged to aid the Metal Accounting process and therefore aim to create an awareness on how to leverage technology to improve the accuracy, efficiency, and transparency of Metal Accounting practices within a metal processing operation.

The following are some of the objectives of the course:

  • Understanding the importance of digital transformation: Participants will learn about the benefits of digital transformation in Metal Accounting, including increased accuracy, efficiency, and transparency.

  • Adopting digital tools and technologies: Participants will learn the benefits and impact of using digital tools and technologies to automate Metal Accounting processes, such as data entry, reconciliation, and reporting. They will also learn how to use digital systems to store and manage Metal Accounting data.

  • Improving accuracy and efficiency: Participants will learn about best practices for implementing digital technologies to improve the accuracy and reliability of Metal Accounting data, as well as ways to increase the efficiency of Metal Accounting processes.

  • Enhancing data management and analysis: Participants will learn about the importance of data management and analysis in Metal Accounting, and how to use digital tools and technologies to capture, store, and analyse Metal Accounting data.

  • Ensuring compliance with regulations: Participants will learn about the legal and regulatory requirements for Metal Accounting. They will also learn about the importance of maintaining ethical and responsible Metal Accounting practices in a digital environment.
