Resources and Energy Alert: PPSA tips for mining and resources - 21 Mar 2012

The Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (PPSA) came into effect on 30 January 2012 and has a wide-ranging impact on Australian businesses. This ground-breaking legislation creates new concepts and discards accepted principles that have formed the basis of commerce for many years.

The PPSA impacts a range of transactions within the mining industry, including joint ventures, farmouts, equipment supply and the sale of extracted minerals.

Partner Paul Cullen, the head of HopgoodGanim's Banking and Finance practice, discusses how the PPSA affects mining and resources companies, and what they can do to protect themselves, on BRR Media.
