Abstract USGS

There are eight individual cost categories for both capital and operating costs, plus a total cost equation for each. Electrical costs are a small cost component for the open pit mine models and are included in the construction material category. Note that capital costs are expressed in dollars and operating costs in dollars per short ton of material (ore and waste) mined. All costs are based

Australia’s gold mines by production, grades and costs

22/05/2019· Scale, grades, processing costs, open pit vs underground. The interesting aspect of the AISC metric is the number of factors that feed into the final figure, and similar to any other sector costs, they can vary from month to month and year to year. In the case of gold stocks, better grades usually translate into lower cost mines.

Estimation of the potential production rate

D.A. Singer, W.D. Menzie and K.R. Long revised Taylor's rule in 1998, based on a data set of 41 open pit gold-silver mines. Their model found that appropriate rates for open pit gold-silver mines should be significantly higher than what Taylor's Rule suggests. Their resulting equation was: D.A. Singer, W.D. Menzie and K.R. Long also adapted Taylor's rule for underground massive sulfide

All-in sustaining costs and all-in costs | World Gold Council

It is expected that laybacks at existing open pit mines will be considered sustaining in nature unless they meet the criteria outlined above. Companies that report under US GAAP are not permitted to capitalise open pit stripping costs during the production phase of the mine under EITF 04-6. As a result, differences in reported AISC may arise

Opening New Mines

For small capacity mines, 40% of the capital cost of the large capacity mine is used based on trends seen in the capital cost calculation for refining. The variable portion of the cost calculation is based on the open pit mining models published by the USGS, which take into account several factors that affect capital expenditures (Camm, 1991). From these, the following calculations were made:

How to profit from low-grade gold mines Part 1 |

24/12/2018· Open pit vs underground: Of utmost importance to the cost of extracting gold is where the gold lies within a deposit. A deposit of disseminated gold (small particles of gold distributed throughout the rock) close to surface will be open-pit mined, while gold found in often-thin veins hundreds of meters below surface is mined using underground methods. There are many more low-grade gold

COVID-19’s impact on the global gold industry

More generally, on the positive side, the big winners from a margin standpoint will probably be remote, open-pit, diesel-powered mines—in some cases with costs that have declined by more than $100 an ounce—and mines in regions (such as Mexico, Russia, and South Africa) with high currency depreciation against the US dollar.

Surface mining planning and design of open pit mining

09/01/2016· A slope failure occurred at the Cleo Open Pit (Sunrise Dam Gold Mine, Western Australia) in December 2000. At the time of failure the pit-floor was at 100 m depth below surface. Two critical factors played a role in the failure: The top of the water table is at a very high level: only 30 m below surface. A strong layer of younger clay sediments overlies weaker weathered bedrock. 2 February
