This 5 page PDF illustrates the direct impact that relatively minor cost adjustments can have on an operation, using an example surface mine to show how cost estimates to a mobile fleet change when adjusting costs such as fuel or electricity usage, including base case fleet capital and operating costs.
Costmine’s 2020 update of the Mine and Mill Equipment Cost Guide is here, as is our online software application, Equipment Cost Calculator.
These cost estimating tools provide estimators with an exhaustive list of the capital and hourly costs associated with owning and operating equipment typically used in surface and underground mining and mineral processing operations.
The granularity of our hourly operating cost items and the transparent methodology for determining each allows the estimator to make informed decisions about their specific project in a timely manner.
