The Mining Valuation Handbook: Mining and Energy Valuation for Investors and Management, 4th Edition


Equity markets have experienced turbulent times in recent years, particularly in resource valuations and commodity prices. In this international bestseller Victor Rudenno once again provides comprehensive, current information on mining and unravels some of the mystery surrounding the resources industry.

  • extensive commentary relevant to the mining industry
  • valuation concepts
  • worked examples and feasibility studies
  • the role of resources and reserves
  • commodity values and forecasting
  • real option analysis
  • extensive commodity profiles.

The Mining Valuation Handbook is an essential addition to the libraries of astute investors and mining and financial analysts.
