Excerpt from Mine Accounting and Cost Principles The present tax laws of most of the States and of the Federal Government require that accurate records be kept and that complete reports be made to the Government of the results of each year's business. The employes of large industrial units are demanding that they be informed of the results of their labor, and be given a share either of the profits of the business or in the savings resulting from their increased efficiency or effort. The general public is insisting that, being the consumer of all products, the costs and profits of industry shall be accurately determined and made public. As the result of the gradual depletion of our richest deposits of minerals the mining industry is operating on a narrower margin of profit than at any time in its history, and must know its costs from month to month to protect against loss. Also, it is now recognized that a mining enterprise may be properly equipped with the best of mechanical appliances and have an organization of high ability and employes embued with the spirit of co-operation, nevertheless the business cannot be intelligently managed without a knowledge of the results of operation and the condition of the business for each operating period, which information can be obtained only by proper accounting and costing. Therefore, each unit of the mining industry feels the need not only of accurately determining its costs and profits so as to have an intelligent guide to operations, and to meet the requirements of the Government, the public and of its employes, but to compile the accounting and costing data in as uniform a manner as possible so as to obtain the benefit of the operating data compiled by the other units of the industry. To meet this need there is an urgent demand for a complete presentation of accounting and costing of mining operations compiled on a scientific basis and in a uniform manner. In spite of this demand, however, at the present time the published literature is inadequate and lacking in uniformity and there is practically no agreement nor any great degree of efficiency in the accounting and costing practice of mines. The only explanation of the present status of mine accounting is that the great diversity in methods of mining, treatment and disposal of mine products, as well as in the character of the mines themselves limits the treatment of the subject to a description of individual systems and accounts unless the fundamental principles underlying all mining operations are recognized.
