In business terms, especially in the gold mining business, there is an objective need to create an own research facility within the Company in order to foresee possible risks, evaluate the chance of their occurrence and calculate the damage caused to the company by these risk events.
This project includes some potential business risks assessed based on the scale of probability (the impossible event is "0", the low probability is "1", the average probability is "2", the probable event is "3", the high incidence - "4").
|Type of risk||Subtype of risk||The probability of occurrence (0-4)|
|Production risk||Decrease in the volume of output and its realization||2|
|Reduction of unit price||1|
|Unforeseen increase in material costs||3|
|Over expenditure of the wage fund||1|
|Payment of increased taxes, deductions and payments||3|
|Losses caused by other circumstances||2|
|Commercial risk||Unfavorable changes in the price of purchased materials, raw materials, energy, fuel and other||2|
|Decrease in the price of products||1|
|Loss or decline in product quality||2|
|Excess of costs over project||1|
|Operational risk||Transport risk||3|
|Financial risk||Insolvency of one of the parties to financial transactions||1|
|Change in the rate of securities, currency||2|
