Equipment Cost Calculator

The industry's most comprehensive online tool for mine & mill cost estimating.

The Equipment Cost Calculator provides all the same information as our Mine & Mill Equipment Cost Guide in a convenient online format. Build your equipment fleet, tabulate its costs, adjust for local economics and conditions, and export the data into your own spreadsheet for further analysis.

What's Included

Details

The Equipment Cost Calculator provide you with the underlying cost estimating methodology that you need to fully understand, adjust and have confidence in your estimates.

Who Uses the Mine & Mill Equipment Cost Calculator?

  • Cost Estimators
  • Purchasing Agents
  • Geologists, Engineers, Metallurgists
  • Appraisers

What does each equipment listing include?

  • Specification information to help you select the right size and type of equipment for your project.
  • Horsepower ratings to help you determine fuel or power requirements.
  • Current list prices to help you determine your capital budget for equipment.
  • Hourly operating costs itemized for overhead, overhaul parts and labor, maintenance parts and labor, fuel, electric power, lubricants, tires, and wear parts to give you instant estimates of operating costs.
  • Unit cost basis for hourly operating costs to allow adjustments for local wages and prices.

What can you do with the ECC?

  • Select your equipment inventory from our database of over 3,000 models and sizes
  • Utilize Costmine’s current capital cost and hourly operating cost data for all of the items you select.
  • Adjust the cost data to reflect local unit costs, currencies, operating conditions and economics.
  • Print a report containing the capital and operating cost data for your equipment inventory.
  • Export your inventory list with cost data to an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis if desired.

Compared to our Mine & Mill Equipment Cost Guide, the Equipment Cost Calculator brings you the added ability to change parameters on-the-fly to meet your specific project requirements. Unit costs such as repair labor, fuel, natural gas, electricity and lubricants can be changed to match your local supplier costs and factor-based adjustments may be applied to other individual cost centers such as tires or wear parts. Moreover, currencies may be adjusted to account for locales outside of North America.

Mobile and stationary equipment for surface and underground mining, reclamation and processing of coal, metals, and industrial minerals are included, with all prices and costs in USD.
