Top Audit Risks
Thank you!
By: Sheila, Michelle, Avijot, Arvind
Have not incurred any pro-longed losses
Always tried to expand its market share in low risk area
Have 43% debt-to-equity due to the expansions during the year
We will continue to monitor the non-compliance with litigation

November 22, 2013
- Chile's Supreme court had frozen Goldcorp's El Morro gold and copper mine project. The reason being that they have not conducted the required consultation and that the mine could potentially pollute a local river
December 9, 2013
- Santa Cruz, Argentine authorities state that Goldcorp would have to pay about $3.2 M due to health and safety violations
January 29, 2014
- A mine in Quebec, Canada, sues Goldcorp, alleging they used confidential information and acted in a way not agreed upon in their confidentiality agreement during their takeover. Goldcorp let its offer expire after being outbid by two buyers
The control risk related to employee turnover is a concern and will be paired with a procedure to help address it
Inherent risk related to employee turnover is high
A global presence increases inherent risk because of Goldcorp's foreign operations
The audit risk is moderately low because there is minimal fraud that can occur due to Goldcorp's respected reputation. Also, previously audited statements illustrate that the financial statements were appropriately accounted for and free of error
Summary of Strategy
Procedures to address top audit risks:
Knowledge of health and safety standards will help mitigate violations
Finding a balance to reduce employee turnover by creating a loyal workforce that flourishes in an integrity filled environment
Currency conversions utilizing data software to reduce potential misstatement when accounting for foreign currency from operations
Research environmental policies before proceeding with mining operations in different countries
Mining companies gold mine, but it also includes exploration, extraction, processing and reclamation
Essential part of the development of highways, networks, housing and electrical.
Canada is known as one of the largest mining nations in the world. There are over 800 mining operations throughout the country
It contributes 5% of Canada's gross domestic product and 19% of its total exports
