At the beginning of 2014, Aristotle Company acquired a mine for $1,336,970. Of this amount, $101,300 was ascribed to the land value and the remaining portion to the minerals in the mine. Surveys conducted by geologists have indicated that approximately 12,070,000 units of the ore appear to be in the mine. Aristotle incurred $172,210 of development costs associated with this mine prior to any extraction of minerals. It also determined that the fair value of its obligation to prepare the land for an alternative use when all of the mineral has been removed was $40,520. During 2014, 2,459,000 units of ore were extracted and 2,150,000 of these units were sold.
