Mining financial modeling


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 operating a mine producing 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 (primary and secondary minerals)
· Production profile (includes mining and processing profiles)
· Variable and fixed operating costs (includes mining, milling and by-product credits)
· 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 value:
· Unlevered Free Cash Flow (UFCF)
· Net Present Value (NPV)
· Build a detailed summary page to display the results
· Use various sensitivity tools to sensitize the project’s returns
· Conditionally format output tables to highlight specified results
