AusIMM Project Evaluation 2016 – Independent Peer Review & Benchmarking

As part of the AusIMM conference at in Adelaide Neil Cusworth and Jane Miller presented industry leading thoughts on Independent Peer Review and the use of Benchmarking in capital projects.

In the last 10 years the world mining industry has been through a boom-bust-boom-bust building cycle driven by commodity prices and demand.

The sheer scale of development has caused rapid and huge fluctuations in the availability and cost of materials, equipment, construction resources and services for mine development and operation.

The rate of changes has challenged the governance processes of both Benchmarking and Independent Peer Reviews.

Use and Abuse of Feasibility Studies 2016 Update

As part of the AusIMM conference at in Adelaide Neil Cusworth presented an update to the Use and Abuse of Feasibility Studies Paper.

Also winning best presentation as part of the conference.

Projects whose expectations have been set after comprehensive, detailed and integrated feasibility studies and that are then delivered by experienced, integrated teams encompassing all relevant areas of project expertise are able to deliver predictable project outcomes regardless of the inherent project factors or external macroeconomic circumstances.

The impact of the uncontrollable changes in external macroeconomic circumstances will be lessened if all other aspects of a project’s planning and execution are well controlled.

Where have projects gone horribly wrong?

As part of the London Mines and Money conference at Enthalpy’s UK launch Neil Cusworth presented “Why, for the last decade, did the international Mining sector deliver so many bad projects – and importantly how can we stop history repeating itself”.

This article explores project mistakes and how to prevent them.

Since the boom in commodity prices and the rush to develop and construct new mining projects to meet demands for products, many projects have been analysed and stated to be failures.

Enthalpy has been involved in delivering a range of mining projects or conducting reviews of studies and projects over the last 25 years. We have also been involved in conducting many post project reviews.

Most of the public dialogue and particularly “Management consultants” point to cost and schedule overruns as indicators of project mistakes. But is this dialogue correct?

And what are the causes of the project failures?

Can these failures be prevented or do investors have to learn to live with the reality of risks in the mining industry?

So if a project fails to be robust enough to withstand swings in commodity prices or cannot deliver the product tonnages forecast, or suffers exchange rate changes then capital costs overrunning and schedule delays will be just minor issues.
