TIP: The depletion cost is the amount to be removed from the property, plant, and equipment classification ($180,000 in this case). It is based on the units extracted from the earth during the period. The portion of this $180,000 which appears on the income statement is dependent upon the number of units sold.

When the number of units extracted exceed the number sold, a portion of the depletion costs goes into the inventory account on the balance sheet.
