This paper will discuss the Comparable Transaction method, which is a subset of the Market approach to the valuation of Mineral Assets. The paper will focus on copper, but will touch on some issues frequently encountered when dealing with other commodities. Statistically analysing large datasets provides another tool to investigate trends and common themes, in order to assist in establishing robust valuation metrics. Trends in valuation metrics over time, within the context of differing commodity prices and technical considerations will be discussed, as well as the practical application of these metrics and some of the common pitfalls encountered.
