Who Will Benefit from this Course? This course is intended for those with little knowledge of mining, but a desire to learn enough to make wise and successful investment moves in public stock markets where mining shares are traded. This course is also intended for seasoned mining stock investors who wish to take a fresh look at the basics of investing in mining stocks with a view to polishing up on, and possibly revising, strategies and investment portfolios. The Good News and the Bad News The good news is that many people have made lots of money investing in mines. The bad news is that many have lost money, or had to wait many years for a fair return on invested capital. The basic reason is that mining is a risky business. There are multiple risks involved at all steps along the way through finding an ore body, confirming the extent of resources, permitting a new mining operation, constructing the support facilities, operating the mine, and finally closing it so that it is not a perpetual financial drain on the owning company. There are also related risks from mining scams and investment "bubbles." What this Course Can Do for You In this course, the author does three main things: describe the various phases of mining so that you can understand and evaluate the risk of investing in a mine that is involved in one or more of the phases of mining; discuss technical, social, political, and financial factors that make one mining investment better or worse than another; and present stories that highlight the risks and rewards of investing in mines. The course is arranged so that you, as somebody probably relatively new to mining and investment in mining, can identify and evaluate the risks involved so you can make informed decisions about how and when to invest in a mine or mining company.

An Introduction to Modelling Metal Project Finance serves as an introduction to the critical issues associated with the debt financing of mining projects. The aims and objectives of project financing are discussed with an overview of the steps leading up to application. The course is aimed at professionals throughout the mining industry and assumes a basic appreciation of the main financial parameters. Logical guidelines on how to construct a preliminary level cash flow model of project finance are provided, with descriptions of the major input variables. Nickel and platinum are used as example commodities with which to demonstrate the principles of modelling project finance. A background discussion on the technical aspects and major costs involved in developing a large-scale open pit nickel mining project is followed by a step by step guide to the development of a financial model of the project using the financial modelling software tool IC-MinEval. Similarly, background discussion on platinum mining is followed by a step by step guide to developing a financial model of an underground platinum mining project using IC-MinEval. The workbooks generated by IC-MinEval are also included as downloadable spreadsheets for each worked example. The fully linked Excel workbooks have been saved such that by changing the variables in the input sheet revised performance indicators are generated. This does not require the user to have access to IC-MinEval.  A case example is included from Prof. Buchanan's book, Metals and Energy Finance (2018).
