Mining financial modelling

This is an interactive, hands-on course focused on the skills required to create a best-in-class financial model of a mining project. The course is case-based and uses an example of a company developing an open-pit mine to produce base and precious metals.

Topics covered include:

Design and structure a financial model
· Design and layout a financial model clearly and logically
· Discuss the need for a model to serve as a marketing tool
· Create clearly defined inputs and assumptions sections
Build powerful scenarios and cash flow projections
· Use switches to create effective scenarios and value drivers
· Forecast and build-up the project’s revenues and expenses
· Construct all necessary schedules, including:
· Commodity pricing (includes hedging for primary and secondary minerals)
· Production profile (includes construction, mining and processing profiles)
· Variable and fixed operating costs (includes mining, milling and TC/RCs)
· Development and maintenance capital costs
· Reclamation and closure costs
· Resource tax (includes regional resource tax rules)
· Develop a cash flow projection for the mining project
Evaluate the mining project
· Incorporate a schedule to evaluate the project’s returns:
· Net Present Value (NPV)
- Net Asset Value (NAV)
· Internal Rate of Return (IRR)
· Payback and Discounted Payback periods
· Build a detailed summary page to display the results
· Use various sensitivity tools to sensitize the project’s returns
