CESK Mining

Used for conceptual and detailed estimating in mining projects.

The CESK Mining database contains the perfect data for conceptual estimating and detailed estimating of mining CAPEX projects. Using the built-in cost models, you can estimate the relevant equipment costs quickly and accurately. The knowledgebase consists of several key mechanical underground mining equipment, surface mining equipment and process equipment.

The mining cost models are based on more than 200 different pre-existing cost models from the CESK database, that are based on accumulated knowledge from thousands of executed projects and equipment quotes.

Using the CESK Mining models brings the following advantages:

  • Quick and accurate estimates of mining equipment fleet and process plant
  • Transparent cost build-up
  • Flexibility to easily compare different scenarios and design alternatives, such as benchmarking and trend analysis

A cost estimate made with the CESK Mining dataset provides a strong basis for informed decision making early in the project development stages. When more engineering input becomes available, your estimate can easily be fine-tuned further using the CESK Composites or CESK BOQ Rates.
