Grand Banks Mining Inc. plans a project to strip mine a wilderness area. Setting up operations and initial digging will cost Rs. 50,00,000. The first year's operations are expected to be slow and net a positive cash flow of only Rs. 500,000. Then there will be four years of Rs. 20,00,000 cash flows after which the ore will run out. Closing the mine and restoring the environment in the sixth year will cost Rs. 10,00,000.million. Calculate the project's NPV at a cost of capital of 12% and the IRR to the nearest whole percent.

method for your answer. Q5

 

A state government is planning a hydroelectric project for a river basin. In addition to the

 

production of electric power, this project will provide flood control, irrigation and recreation

 

benefits. The estimated benefits and costs that are expected to be derived from this project

 

are as follows: Initial cost = Rs. 8, 00, 00,000

 

Annual power sales = Rs. 60, 00,000

 

Annual flood control savings = Rs. 30, 00,000

 

Annual irrigation benefits = Rs. 50, 00,000

 

Annual recreation benefits = Rs. 20, 00,000

 

Annual operating and maintenance costs = Rs. 30, 00,000

 

Life of the project = 50 years
