Financial modelling for mining projects

Being a capital-intensive industry, mining needs a structured approach to project development to prevent cost blowout and optimise return on investment.

Miners bank on sophisticated financial modelling to estimate the capital investment, operating cost and profit yield of a project, as well as assess the economic viability and calculate the value of a mining asset.

Financial modelling for mining projects uses metal prices, production schedules, mineral reserves, mill capacity and capital costs as the key data to analyse profitability and assist with investment decisions before the design and construction of the project proceeds.
