Wind Mines case


Wind Mines is contemplating the purchase of equipment to exploit a mineral deposit
on land to which the company has mineral rights. An engineering and cost analysis has
been made, and it is expected that the following cash flows would be associated with
opening and operating a mine in the area:

Cost of new equipment and timbers	$275,000
Working capital required	$100,000
Net annual cash receipts	$120,000
Cost to construct new roads in three years $40,000
Salvage value of equipment in four years	$65,000

 Receipts from sale of ore, less out-of-pocket cost for salaries
utilities, insurance etc.
It is estimated that the mineral deposit would be exhausted after four years of mining.
At that point, the working capital would be released for reinvestment elsewhere. The
company required rate of return is 20%.
(Ignore income taxes.) Determine the net present value of the proposed project.
Should the project be accepted? Explain. Show your work below.
