Will this exploration project become a mine?

There are many decisions that need to be made early on in exploration projects – should we continue drilling? What grade and tonnage do we need to make this into an economic project?

How would we develop this project? These questions can usually be answered early on in the development cycle and the answers can provide valuable guidance on making a decision to continue investing or to walk away from a project.

This course is designed to give insight into early stage projects from a mining engineer’s perspective. We will look at all the key aspects required for determining early stage cost estimates including: mining method selection, processing methods, infrastructure requirements, environmental management, and social licence. We will also review key inputs to revenue including: metal prices, metallurgical recoveries, payable metal, transport costs, treatment and  refining charges, and royalties.

Ultimately, we will be able to use this information to develop an early stage cash flow that will give us an indication of a project likelihood of success.
