The objective of this investigation was to develop a manual estimating method through the use of equations, factors, and curves for preparation of feasibility-type estimates for capital and operating costs of mining and primary beneficiation in the United States and Canada of various types of minerals occurrences, except fossil fuels, using state-of-the-art technology. The user should have basic estimating experience in the mining industry and/or related fields. The primary usage of this handbook will be for the preparation of preliminary estimates within a reasonable degree of accuracy with relative small amounts of hard input data. Output may be used to determine if a more finite type of estimate should be produced.
