Mineral Industry in Australia
This chapter provides a summary of the major metal and non-metal mining industry in Australia which represents about 9 percent of its GDP. Discussed are mineral resources, production and Australia's ranking in the world for these minerals: bauxite, copper, diamond, gold, iron ore, lithium, lead, manganese, mineral sands, nickel, silver, tantalum, tin, and uranium.
Mine and Mill Cost Models
This chapter provides cost models for a broad range of sizes and types of surface and underground mines and mills. In addition to capital and operating cost summaries, most models provide listings of manpower, equipment and daily supply needs.
Check our Free Data & Samples for an example of a cost model.

Includes current and projected availability of furnace capacity, the types of material accepted, deleterious element limits, metals recovered, and indications of the company's interest in acquiring additional concentrates. You will also receive a guide to current charges and terms for copper, lead, and zinc smelting and gold and silver refining.
You'll Receive a guide to ocean shipping charges for ores, concentrates, supplies and equipment, along with an annual analysis of projected trends in shipping costs.
You'll Receive clear explanations of current federal, state and territorial taxes and how they apply to your proposed project.

Includes a discussion of federal direct and indirect taxation and grants by government to assist mining projects.
You'll Receive current and historical inflation indexes for 18 key cost categories that affect mining projects, plus our exclusive Australian Mining Cost Guide (AMCG) indexes that track cost inflation for surface and underground mining and milling. The indexes are unique in that they record national cost changes for capital and operating costs for these six segments by apportioning of data published quarterly by Australia's Bureau of Statistics.
Check our Free Data & Samples for the surface and underground mining indexes and milling indexes in North America. Australian indexes are produced using the same format.

You'll Receive current prices for virtually every supply item you need for estimating mine or mill operating costs - including explosives, fuel, timber, reagents, drill bits, grinding media, tires, rock bolts, tires, electrical cable, heap leach supply needs and much more.
You'll Receive current electric power and natural gas rates for utility companies serving mines in all states. This chapter also includes discussion of how energy is regulated nationally.
Dual product discounts available - Many of our customers purchase both Australian Metal Cost Guide (AMCG) and Australian Mine and Mill Equipment Costs, An Estimators Guide (AMME), including the interactive equipment database because the two guides together make a complete cost manual. Customers find the AMME provides important operating cost details for all equipment that cannot be included within the Australian Metal Cost Guide. The two products together provides estimators with all data critical to completing cost studies.
Australian Equipment Cost Calculator - The Australian Equipment Cost Calculator provides "on-line" interactive access to all equipment purchase, ownership and operating costs to all equipment contained in AMME. Users can select equipment, update the operating cost parameters such as repair labor, fuel, lube and other operating cost parameters to customize the equipment for their specific region and project. Project equipment can also be modified to currencies other than Australian dollars.
