Statement of Position (SOP) 98-5, “Reporting on the Costs of Start-up Activities,” provides guidance for mining companies as to when development stops and commercial operations begin. ” The SOP precludes the capitalization of start-up costs that are incurred during the period of insignificant mineral production and before normal productive capacity is achieved. (b) PRODUCTION COSTS. When the mine begins production, production costs are expensed. The capitalized property acquisition, and development costs are recognized as costs of production through their depreciation or depletion, generally on the unit-of-production method over the expected productive life of the mine.

The characterization of expenditures as exploration, development, or production usually determines whether such costs are capitalized or expensed.

Prospecting usually begins with obtaining (or preparing) and studying topographical and geological maps.
