Mining Toolbox is partnered with Big Iron Consulting to produce a benchmarking tool for heavy mining equipment (HME). It is presented on an easy to use interface and comes loaded with a large number of life cycle cost models.
The data is the result of real-world contributions from hundreds of mine sites around the world. Using this base data, you can build and save accurate cost profiles for your equipment. The models include allowances for depreciation, interest rates, insurance, major components, minor components, servicing, breakdown repairs, frame repairs, lubricants and fluids, tyres, ground tool, liners and fuel consumption.
The results can then be shared with your team using the multi-user version and print reports to PDF or Excel. Mining toolbox is cloud based and available anywhere you have an internet connection.
We update the base inputs including changes in currency, inflation adjustments and parts pricings each quarter with new models added on a regular basis.
Cost engineers, purchasing and supply managers, financial analysts, reliability engineers, maintenance managers and cost accountants use Mining Toolbox.
In fact, anyone involved in the operation, review, optimisation, benchmarking and purchasing of large mining equipment benefits from using Mining Toolbox.
Mining Toolbox increases the accuracy and reduces the time to develop life cycle cost models. This provides a better understanding of life cycle equipment costs across the company.
Included in the basic package are over 100 detailed life cycle cost benchmarking models based on real life data with haul trucks, excavators, wheel loaders, graders, bulldozers and more.
The ability to create cost benchmarks, budget models, feasibility models and plant rates for bids all on an easy to use interface.
Access to new models as they become available and the benefit of constant updates to reflect current market conditions and exchange rates.
