Background

The SAIMM announces the 5th Mineral Project Valuation Colloquium. This very successful Colloquium has been run in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2017. The Colloquium will start with the basics for determining market values for mineral projects using the Income Approach (Discounted Cash Flows). The Colloquium will then progress to advanced discussions around shortcomings of the various current methods as well as new approaches. This colloquium will thus cover a broad selection of topics and should be of value for anyone in the mineral asset valuation (MAV) space. Whether you a mining engineer, project geologist or consultant, the lessons, presentations, and discussions will cater to all experience levels, from novice to highly experienced valuators.

Overview

The focus for the first day will be on best practice in valuation techniques. This will be targeted at those who do not perform valuations regularly and in need of a refresher or those looking to develop valuation skills and enter into a new field. This will also be of use to those working in industry who are exposed to or interact with valuations. Those that are looking to engage more meaningfully to improve their decision making and insights into mining and the potential of projects and companies.

The focus for the second day will be on more advanced topics and discussions on some of the challenges with valuation. This day is generally of benefit to more experienced valuators although it can be helpful for less experienced valuators to have exposure to issues that will confront them in the future. It is also an opportunity for them to understand the limitations of valuations and the data on which valuations are based. The discussion of these limitations is intended to improve the ability of experienced valuators to interpret their valuations and for discussions on ways to contextualise valuations and provide more insightful feedback.

Objectives

  • To overview basic theory and principles of valuation techniques and focus on the commonly used DCF technique
  • To cover aspects that commercial and development banks look for when deciding to fund a project
  • To address aspects that mining companies consider in mineral project valuation
  • To evaluate risk in mineral project valuation
  • Impact of changes in the accounting standards
  • To look at the implications of environmental and social aspects of valuation
