Depletion per ton = (Cost – Salvage Value) / life in tons

Depletion per ton = (4,900,000 – 500,000) / 20,000,000

Depletion per ton = \$0.22 per ton

Tons mined = 3,000,000

Depletion expense = 0.22 X 3,000,000 = \$660,000

December, 31              Depletion Expense                                          \$660,000

Allowance for Depletion                                \$660,000

Straight line depreciation = (Cost – Salvage Value) / life

Depreciation expense = (152,000 – 22,000) / 5

Depreciation expense = 26,000

Rate = Depreciation expense / depreciable cost

Rate = 26,000 / 130,000

Rate = 20%

The rate for double declining method will be 40%.

Depreciation expense = Book Value X rate

Depreciation expense year 1 = 152,000 X 40% = \$60,800

Depreciation expense year 2 = 91,200 X 40% = \$36,480

Depreciation expense year 3 = 54,720 X 40% = \$21,888
