The SAIMM hosted a 1-day School on Bankable Feasibility Studies and Project Financing for Mining Projects on 18th March 1999.  This School was a mixture of technical and financial project evaluation and could not therefore adequately address financial aspects in mineral project valuation.

In addition developments have occurred towards stochastic valuation techniques and with the recent recession beginning to wane off, previously mothballed projects are going to have to be re-evaluated for possible inclusion in the project pipeline.

The requirements of the new Royalty Act also need to be factored into the project re-evaluation.

The current IASB Extractive Industries Project also has implications on how mineral project valuation could be done in order for it to talk to IFRS reporting standards.

These developments call for a School to specifically address mineral project valuation.
