Project Evaluation 2009

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2009

The Project Evaluation 2009 Conference was held at a time of unsteady economic activity on the world scene. Towards the end of 2008 there was a collapse in demand and price for the majority of commodities, with a few notable exceptions. As a result for many mining companies the ability to raise project finance disappeared overnight as did the possibility of financing projects internally from the cash flow generated from existing operations. This has had an unprecedented impact on our industry and mining projects globally.

The conference took as its theme 'Moving Forward in Challenging Times'. These conference proceedings bring together papers from best practice experts in a variety of fields and cover the following topics: benchmarking/value adding, improving financials/financial evaluations, project evaluation applications/back on track, resolving issues in challenging times and risk management.
