SELECTED MINERAL ECONOMICS REPORTS AND PUBLICATIONS

 

TAXATION & POLICY ANALYSIS

 

Whitney & Whitney, Inc. conducted numerous studies on taxation and investment policies for mining companies, both domestic and foreign; and for State, Federal, and Foreign governments. Whitney & Whitney, Inc. provided analysis on the impact of taxation on the mining industry and analysis on the impact on specific client projects. Studies include investment and risk analysis in the minerals industry, and reports on the tax impact in major mining states. Clients include Fortune 500 companies, the American Mining Congress, State mining associations (Nevada, and Idaho), the United Nations (for the Namibian Mining industry), and the government of Bolivia (Potosi).

 

ECONOMIC STUDIES

 

Whitney & Whitney, Inc. prepared reports that analyzed the economics of specific mining projects and the economic impact on the mining industry in specific geographic areas on select companies and mining associations. These reports addressed project financials and/or impacts on local governments. Projects reported on include the world class Red Dog zinc mine, the Thunder Valley, Idaho, gold mine, and economic impacts of mining in Idaho, and Nevada, both in1981.

 

GEOLOGY, MINING AND METALLURGICAL EVALUATIONS

 

Geologic reports were prepared to evaluate client interests in mining projects, and to document Whitney & Whitney, Inc. activities: geologic mapping, sampling, drill supervision, and mineral resource quantification.

 

Mine engineering and metallurgical services were provided to provide mine and facility designs; construction and mining schedules; ore testing, and selection of a processing method and equipment selection; capital and construction budgets, feasibility studies, and operating plans for the mine and mill

 

Mineral and metal projects include gold, silver, copper, molybdenum, magnetite, zinc, and industrial minerals.

 

MISCELLANEOUS STUDIES

 

Whitney & Whitney, Inc prepared reports (1989) for Sierra Pacific Power Company to assist them with quantifying power requirements to support the expanding gold mining industry in Nevada.

 

Reports were prepared on the effectiveness of exploration expenditures (1985), and reports on the strategy of whether to explore or to acquire mineral properties (1982 case study analysis).

A comprehensive report was prepared to compile 50 years of exploration and mining history on the Buckskin Range, Nevada to prepare marketing documents to help vend the client’s claim holdings. The report integrated geology, geophysics, geochemistry and drilling data to identify favorable drilling targets. Target selection emphasized geophysical anomalies that are located along, and occur at intersecting linear features that reflect a favorable structural geologic fabric: intersecting faults that tend to have the same trends as known mineralization.

 

This comprehensive report was converted to a PDF that included 60 pages of text and 65 drawings, tables, and figures, and was then burned to a CD for distribution and viewing. Whitney & Whitney successfully located a buyer for the project.

 

FERTILIZER STUDIES

 

Marketing studies were prepared on fertilizer markets in the United States. Fertilizers reported on include ammonium thiosulfate, calcium, iron, manganese, manganese sulfate, sulfur, and zinc. These commodity reports were prepared for various clients.
