As you will see above, most base metal prices are given in US dollars/lb, whereas Au and Ag are given in price/oz. Most resources are calculated in metric tonnes and either as percentages (Cu, Ni, Zn, Pb, Mo) or in g/t (Au, Ag), therefore you must convert values using the following conversion factors: 1 oz = 31.11 g/t. 1 tonne = 1000kg = 2204.6 lbs. Part 1. 1) Using spreadsheet ES4211_Lab1_Part1.xls calculate the cumulative US dollar value for the deposit type (i.e., for each deposit in a group figure out the dollar value then find the sum of all the values for the top 25 deposit in a deposit type).
