• ### New approach for estimating total mining costs in

The total operating cost and capital cost of mining are calculated by using the proposed econometric model and verified by comparing the outputs with CostMine data and Sherpa software outputs for a surface coal mine. The model shows that the capital cost and production rate have a negative effect on the operating cost, while the deposit average thickness and stripping ratio have a positive effect.
