Australian Equipment Estimator’s Bundle

Tailor made for the Australian mining industry; The Australian Equipment Estimator’s Bundle brings together two great products to make your cost estimates quicker and more reliable.

Estimators worldwide have relied for years on Costmine’s guides to equipment capital costs. Now estimators have access to a convenient source of Australian-based hourly operating costs as well as capital costs for virtually every piece of equipment listed in our previous guides.

Included are capital and operating costs for over 3,000 equipment items most commonly found at mines and mills around the world – from 2 HP pumps to 2,000 HP trucks, from $200 slusher buckets to $30,000,000 walking draglines.

The Australian Equipment Cost Calculator provides all the same information as our 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.

Purchase them together for a special bundle price.

What's Included


Both the Australian Mine & Mill Equipment Guide and Australian Equipment Cost Calculator provide you with the underlying cost estimating methodology that you need to fully understand, adjust and have confidence in your estimates.

Each equipment listing includes:

  • 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.

The Australian 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.
