Example of a Rising NPV Profile for a Mining Project

Peter Bell ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper describes a situation where the NPV Profile for a mining project is rising in the initial periods of production. This is an interesting case because mining projects are typically characterized by decreasing NPV Profiles caused by declining reserves and ever-approaching end to mine life. In this example, the NPV Profile is increasing alongside mine production levels in the first half of the project life. The parameters for this model are based on simplifying assumptions for the potential production profile of Anaconda Mining, a publicly-traded mining company.
