…exposure to the metals and mining. This includes well-known titans of the mining industry, such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Metso-Outotec, Epiroc and Sandvik. Operating margins average 15% across this landscape of…

Mining: crushing, grinding and comminution costs?

Mining crushing grinding costs

Mining: crushing-grinding costs. Extracting useful resources from mined ores requires comminution. This is the integrated sequence of crushing and grinding operations, which breaks down mined rubble (3-10 cm diameter), effectively…

Energy costs of mining processes?

Energy costs of mining processes

…ore grades contract, because more effort is expended mining, transporting and processing non-valuable by-products. Generally, we think a 33% ore grade will likely require 100kWh of mining energy per ton…

Coal mining: the economics?

economics of coal mining

This data-file aims to approximate the economics of a new coal mine, using simple rules of thumb and data from past projects, capex (in $/Tpa) and opex (in $/ton). Coal…

Lithium mining and upgrading: the economics?

Lithium carbonate production

This lithium carbonate production data-file quantifies the economics of producing lithium carbonate from spodumene in mined pegmatites, via the usual process of comminution, flotation, calcination and then acid-leaching. We estimate…

Uranium mining: the economics?

economics of uranium mining

This simple model aims to disaggregate the marginal costs of a new uranium mine, as a function of uranium prices, ore grade, capex and opex. Our base case is a…

…to the energy transition. But mining is energy intensive. And so this requires a focus on improving mining efficiency. You could argue therefore that flotation and leaching are two of…

CO2 intensity of coal production?

mining is more methane-leaky than surface mining. For example, total methane leakage of US coal is 3.2 m3/ton, which breaks down as c30-35% from underground mines at 10m3/ton, and c65-70%…
