Yes, it is possible. Just like in a part, you'll select the plane you want to mirror about and then select the parts you want to mirror. You can also box select.

If it's a large assembly, going through all the sub-components could be time consuming and the mates won't mirror over, but I would recommend doing it that way, it's cleaner.

Alternatively, a cheaty way to do it is to save the assembly as a part and mirror that if you just need the graphical representation
