Objectives The paper aims to develop an assessment methodology for currency risk adapted to gold mining enterprises. Methods A methodological basis for assessing the currency risk of gold mining companies is the systems approach. As well, we used the method of historical modeling. Results The assessment of currency risk is proposed to be implemented on the basis of the VAR concept and the methodology for assessing stress losses. Stress assessment is suggested to be carried out for two types of shocks, determined by the growth of currency rates by ten and thirty percent.
