Abstract: 

Pre-feasibility & feasibility studies are vital for mining projects. The results of studies can be used for investment decision making. One part of these studies is estimation of project capital and operational costs specially the cost of required equipments. Due to possibility of several technical alternatives, estimation of costs should be fulfilled for each alternative separately. Therefore, suitable models or soft ware’s may be useful to do these studies in shortest possible time with sufficient accuracy.
In this study, a soft ware has been designed and implemented for estimating the capital costs of equipments in open pit mines. Basically, this software is designed using western mining engineering institute cost model. Visual basic programming language is applied for development the soft ware which can be run in the windows- XP, 2000, 98 and NT environment.
