Mining economics is a fundamental key to investment decisions, project financing and dispute resolution. Wardell Armstrong has an extensive track record of delivering financial modelling and economic evaluation services for many years and for projects all over the world, covering every stage of the mining lifecycle and the majority of commodities.

Economic valuation can come in at any stage of a project’s development from early stage Scoping Studies, through Pre-feasibility to Definitive Feasibility Studies.

Ultimately, much of our work is geared towards project financing in some form or other, whether it be debt or equity.

We help our clients to improve project performance through detailed project valuation from exploration to production, often included within Scoping to Definitive Feasibility Studies, by identifying key risks and modelling, through sensitivity analysis and by alternative scenarios valuation.

We use discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis which is broadly accepted within the mining industry as representing the economic value of a project after allowing for the cost of capital invested.  DCF models are usually based on our mine designs and production schedules prepared with respect to historical performance.

Our comprehensive mining project financial models meet international best practice and are acceptable to both institutional and private investors.

Effective Communication with existing shareholders and potential investors is crucial to the success of any listed company, and with the recent implementation of MiFID2, the pressure on Investor Relations Officers (IRO) globally is ever increasing.
