The mining industry is involved in the extraction of precious minerals and other geological materials. The extracted materials are transformed into a mineralized form that serves an economic benefit to the prospector or miner. Typical activities in the mining industry include metals production, metals investing, and metals trading.

What Would it Cost to Build a Bitcoin Mining Rig Today? –
Critical to all mining operations is the "break even" factor, which the mining estimator seeks to determine. This is the value of cryptocurrency that must be produced for the cost of the rig to be paid for. For example, one featured Bitcoin mining rig costs USD $1,767 to build and operate and generates $4.56 in profit per day at current prices.

The Cost of Maintenance Destroys Your Capital Investment Returns
The cost of maintenance destroys your capital investment returns. When equipment is first selected the buyer has the choice to buy for quality and long trouble-free operating life or to buy based on least cost. The least cost choice will result in high maintenance and operating expense for the life of the equipment.

Mining Costs – CAPEX vs. OPEX. Depending on the location of the project and the type and quantity of the minerals contained within the deposit, the mining costs can vary a lot between different mining projects. In general, underground mining is more expensive than open pit mining as with open pit mining the minerals are found near the surface
Mine cost estimation may be done at many levels. At first it may be a simple "back of the envelope" estimation using similar operations to benchmark against. Later it may be decided to use an existing mine that the company owns and factor and compare costs against them.
