The IGF is hosting a training workshop on mineral export valuation in Lusaka, Zambia, from June 10 to 11, 2019.
The workshop will focus on the export valuation process, mineral product pricing, and key copper- and manganese-related issues.
Throughout the workshop, participants will explore timely issues including:
- Why does mineral export valuation matter? The effects of under-invoicing of mineral exports, risks to government revenue, risk of abuse, and the impact on mineral values and product pricing.
- What is the export valuation process? Distinguishing mineral export valuation from mine valuation, quantity and quality controls, different processes for different minerals and key valuation risks.
- How are different mineral products priced? A look into key mineral commodities for Zambia, exploring the method of beneficiation, market conditions and pricing, sales agreements and more.
The workshop will also feature deep dives into copper and manganese with practical exercises on valuation and pricing.
