Fundamentals of Project Evaluation and Risk Analysis short course is an ideal practical introduction to project modelling and financial evaluation for professionals in the mineral exploration, mining and the security industry.
This four-day course will provide an understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts of finance and project evaluation as applied to the resources sector.
Focus will be on practical learning based on construction of a financial model of a mine using Excel.
Modelling will progress from an initial simplistic template to a more realistic ‘base’ case, including more detailed consideration of its revenue function and funding of capital investments during its pre-production stage.
