The chart/table below are crude budgetary estimations for the cost of major plant equipment. Actual cost will vary depending of the process details and detailed equipment list and origin. Please use this to decide if your project and dream for becoming a miner or mining company is something you can afford.
This is only an approximation. Engineering, installation and construction costs are not included here.
Doing metallurgical process development testwork and engineering is the best way to keep your final and total cost to a minimum.
