Natural Resources

Addressing uncertainty with experience

As commodity prices fluctuate and environmental concerns continue to draw the attention of regulators, the Natural Resources industry is facing more pressure than ever. Operating at the centre of an international political debate over industry tax incentives, junior miners, offshore drilling legislation, and alternative energy, the industry is confronted with a unique set of challenges, complexities, and uncertainties.

BDO's Natural Resources sector practice leverages industry experience and global resources in all of the world's energy centres to help clients navigate challenging landscapes both at home and abroad. Our partners and professionals understand the intricacies of the industry from traditional mining to Junior mining. Our partner-led service teams consist of professionals with a variety of multi-disciplinary backgrounds, allowing them to serve clients with a uniquely comprehensive perspective. In addition to traditional audit, tax, and business consulting, BDO provides advice on complex matters, including transaction advisory services, revenue recognition, technology issues, and risk management in South Africa and globally.

The natural resources sector is dynamic, internationally focused and complex. It is always under the microscope as environmental concerns and fluctuating commodity prices draw the attention of regulators, politicians and the general public.

BDO works with some of the country’s largest mining companies (BHP Billiton, Exxaro Resources, AngloGold Ashanti, Petra Diamonds, Glencore, Continental Coal and Harmony Gold). We also have experience in servicing mining engineering companies (Hatch Goba, DRA, DetNet) and Junior Miners, locally and abroad. We pride ourselves on our ability to service the mid-tier mining sector across the majority of commodities.

We also have a focus on the energy and renewables sector, servicing a number of renewable energy projects in the Cape (Nordex Energy and Enel Green Power).
