TOPIC: Statistical Analysis of Parameters Influencing Capital Overruns on Mining Projects

LOCATION: Toronto, Canada

 

For more than 20 years, the mining and metallurgical sector has been plagued with a poor record of estimating initial capital costs. Capital overruns have been well documented both in the media and mining specific publications. In an effort to improve the quality and maturity of studies throughout the project lifecycle, the speakers have examined factors contributing to error and systematic bias in feasibility study cost estimates. In this presentation, Mr. Pearson and Ms. Wong-Cameron will present their findings from regression analysis of 98 mining projects completed from 1997-2015, identifying project elements found to have a statistically significant impact on capital cost overruns.
