Restatement of Financial Statements for the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021
The Company determined that its interpretation and application of certain technical accounting standards related to an advance on profit-sharing and the gold ounces to be delivered which requires the Company to make a restatement to the audited consolidated financial statements for the years ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021. The Company has restated, due to material errors, the comparative information included in the financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2022 and in the management’s discussion and analysis (the “MD&A”).
Users of the Company’s financial statements should note that the restatement and the associated adjustments are not as a result of any change to the Company’s operations or the Company’s business. For any and all of the aforementioned periods there is no impact on the overall cash position, or net cash flows from operating, investment or financing activities on the statement of cash flows.
Advance on profit-sharing
As at September 30, 2022, Management of the Company determined that its initial interpretation of the accounting treatment of an advance received under an agreement dated March 15, 2019 was not in accordance with IFRS 9. Management reassessed its interpretation and concluded that the advance on profit-sharing received under the agreement at the contract date should have been recorded as a financial liability since inception of the contract instead of as a credit against exploration and evaluation expenses incurred in 2019 and 2020 as part of this agreement.
Gold ounces to be delivered
As at September 30, 2022, Management of the Company determined that its interpretation and application of certain technical accounting standards related to gold ounces to be delivered signed in prior years was not in accordance with the IFRS. Previously, gold ounces payable were recorded at historical cost as the transaction contracts was considered to be entered into and continued to be held for the purpose of the delivery of a non-financial item in accordance with the entity’s expected sale requirements (or the “own-use” exemption). However, following the agreement to sell the mining properties on August 30, 2021 (Note 6 of the annual financial statements), the gold ounces to be delivered were no longer held for the purpose of the delivery of a non-financial item in accordance with the entity’s expected sale requirements. Consequently, the gold ounces to be delivered are considered a derivative instrument and accounted for at fair value.
A summary of the restatement is described in further detail below. More details can be found in the Financial Statements and the MD&A that will be available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) website at www.sedar.com.
