The Industry Standard
APEX is the standard of the industry for economic
evaluation of mining projects - a status achieved only after
years of use by hundreds of mining companies, government
agencies, research organizations and mining schools. APEX
reports have appeared in boardrooms, courtrooms, and mining
offices worldwide. The reasons for its success are simple: APEX
provides the answers mining professionals need - consistently,
reliably, and conveniently.
APEX can help you put your
project decisions on a solid foundation of economic principles.
Terms such as tons, grade, mining costs, dilution, and mill
recovery are the working language for APEX. Present value,
payback period, rate of return, breakeven values, and risk and
sensitivity analyses are the results.
Simple, Complex Models Handled with
Enter simple models into the program
in minutes, with the results available in seconds. Complicated
models require little added effort, even with complex scenarios
like these: Properties with multiple ore types, commodities, and
smelter or refinery schedules; production costs that vary over
time; multiple royalty terms; multiple ore bodies mined
simultaneously by differing methods; equity, loan or joint
APEX is completely
menu-driven, with easy to understand data entry screens.
The Results You Need
produces a complete cash flow schedule for your project and then
computes the projected net present value, pay-back period, and
internal rate of return on either a before- or after-tax basis.
With the initial results
computed, it is a simple matter to change any of the data items
and determine what impact the change would have on the project
economics, or you can proceed to determine breakeven values for
any of the items and go on to conduct sensitivity and risk
analyses in a variety of ways.
easily compute the breakeven value for any of the data items you
entered, such as ore grade, production rate, stripping ratio,
smelting charges, or mining costs.
Risk and Sensitivity Analysis
Powerful risk and sensitivity modules allow you to examine the
economic effects of variations in the data elements. By testing
ranges of values, APEX allows you to work with data that might
not be as accurate as you would like it to be. If you can tell
APEX how accurate you think your data is, it will tell you how
certain you can be of the results.
report print-out contains a complete summary of data and results
in a professional looking format suitable for independent
presentation or inclusion in your project report. APEX also
allows you the option of exporting your results to popular
spreadsheet or word processing programs.
