This subject is designed to provide students with a working knowledge of the issues and calculations involved when analysing and valuing a mining project or mining company. The characteristics of the Australian mining industry are examined before focusing on the technical determination of inputs into the valuation. This involves analysing the costs of mining and mineral processing stages. Students will work through a case study which is a practical demonstration of how a mining project is evaluated. Other financing alternatives are also explored.
This subject contributes to the following majors: investment management and financial analysis.
