Abstract USGS

Working capital, based on 2 months of operating costs, was included in the capital cost of each mine and mill model. Working capital covers the cost of meeting operating costs in the initial stages of production, before revenue is generated from the first shipments of product (concentrates or dote). This value can vary from. 2 to 6 months.
