waste rock and scrap pollution

Waste rock definition — AccountingTools

2022-2-25 · Waste rock is usually removed in order to gain access to a commercially-producible mineral deposit. If so, the cost should be capitalized along with other development costs and then amortized over the life of the mine. If the removed waste rock does not provide access to a commercially-producible mineral deposit, then the related cost should be ...
