Benchmark Cost Curves 
Create presentation-ready charts displaying where your company ranks on a global cost curve for competitive analysis. Our intuitive charting tool enables you to drill down within the SNL Metals & Mining database, an offering of S&P Global Market intelligence, to group, filter, label and highlight multiple cost curves by property, equity owner or geography. Incorporate data series such as All-in Costs, All-in Sustaining Costs, Total Cash Margins and other filters to obtain deeper analytical insights into cash costs and production forecast. View detailed mine level production, costs and cash flows. 

Perform Scenario-Based Risk Analysis
Evaluate possible risk caused by unanticipated market changes. Our flexible models let you analyse mine value, costs and production for insight to react to the market. Apply your proprietary price assumptions or apply our Consensus Commodity Price Broker Forecasts to the model. Export the full flex model to Excel or a PDF. Our Flex Model allows you to change, save and flex assumptions for all mines for all forecast years:

  • Metal Prices & Fuel Costs
  • Exchange Rates
  • Country level Cost Percent Inflators (ie, Labor, Electricity, Reagents etc.)
