Question 1 2 out of 2 points Hick Mining is evaluating when to open a gold mine. The mine has 48,800 ounces of gold left that can be mined, and mining operations will produce 6,100 ounces per year. The required return on the gold mine is 11 percent, and it will cost $34.1 million to open the mine. When the mine is opened, the company will sign a contract that will guarantee the price of gold for the remaining life of the mine. If the mine is opened today, each ounce of gold will generate an aftertax cash flow of $1,410 per ounce. If the company waits one year, there is a 65 percent probability that the contract price will generate an aftertax cash flow of $1,610 per ounce and a 35 percent probability that the aftertax cash flow will be $1,310 per ounce. What’s the NPV of openning the mine in one year? Selected Answer: $13,143,980 .01 Answers: $9,821,000 $7,991,000 $13,143,980 .01 $11,841,423 .43 Response Feedback: If you open the mine in one year, the cash flow will be either: CFUp = 6,100($1,610) = $9,821,000 per year CFDown = 6,100($1,310) = $7,991,000 per year The PV of these cash flows is: Price increase:PMT=$9,821,000 N=8 I/Y=11 FV=0 CPT:PV=$50,540,071.64

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
