Monte carlo simulation is a computerized mathematical technique that allows people to account for risk in quantitative analysis and decision making the technique is used by professionals in such widely disparate fields as finance, project management, energy, manufacturing, engineering, research and development, insurance, oil & gas. Simulation and decision support mining and large capital-intensive projects are continually faced with risky and complex decisions every day these decisions touch on matters relating to investment options, risk management, asset optimisation and process integration through to working capital efficiency and inventory management. • constructing a basic dcf model of a mining project introduction to uncertainty and risk risk management and real option valuation this course is an ideal introduction to risk analysis and real option valuation methodologies for professionals in the. Schedule risk analysis using the risk driver method and monte carlo simulation by david hulett “using the risk driver approach to risk analysis is a significant improvement over the more traditional 3-point estimate because it uses the high priority risks identified in the risk register that have been rank ordered through qualitative risk.
The objective is to value the mining project on a discount cash flow (dcf) basis, taking into account the impact of the risk analysis in the mining industry in addition, risk analysis simulation can provide management with the yardsticks to test and validate operational forecasts simulate – rather than speculate. Risk and safety management are the main issues facing mining industry as per the worker safety rules and regulations, precautions must be taken to avoid accidents mining software has helped the mining industry to increase the overall operational efficiency by automating various processes involved in mining. The term “risk” has many meanings in the mining world the current draft iso guideline uses the broad definition of risk as “the effect of uncertainty on objectives”, and similarly broad definitions for “risk analysis”, “risk management” and “risk tolerance. Using simulation analysis for mining project risk management simulation is a process of designing a model of a real system and conducting experiments with this model for the purpose of understanding the behavior of the system and/or evaluating various strategies for the operation of the system (shannon 1998.
Risk identification, assessment and management in the mining and risk identification, assessment and management in the mining and metallurgical industries or target groups are examined, they should be ranked the impact of project risk can be described in terms of. Project management simulation is simulation used for project management training and analysis project management simulation is often used as training simulation for project managersin other cases it is used for what-if analysis and for supporting decision-making in real projects frequently the simulation is conducted using software tools.

Governance authorities argue that one of management's major responsibilities is risk management risk management includes identifying the sources of risk, choosing the appropriate level of risk, and monitoring actual risk levels to identify situations in which the chosen risk levels might, or have been, breached. Mining project risk assessment and mitigation sgs has a proven track record for providing bankable project risk assessments and mitigation services for exploration and mining projects globally our capabilities help you mitigate technical, environmental, economic and social risks, as well as health and safety risks. Project schedule risk analysis: monte carlo simulation or pert project management journal (february) levine, harvey, a risk management for dummies: managing schedule, cost and technical risk and contingency.
The analysis shows that simulation can assist with determining whether financing terms are appropriate and whether these terms can be altered to better suit the project risk profile keywords real options , project finance , gold hedge , mining , project valuation , monte carlo simulation , financial engineering , risk management. Simulation analysis was introduced to a mining and iron production factory project to estimate performance and assess possible risks in a real life case simulation is a process of designing a model of a real system and conducting experiments.
