Chapter 23 Problem 11 pg887 Investmetn Analysis & Portfolio Management Reilly/Brown You are an investor trying to value a gold mining company’s lease on a gold mine that is currently not operating. It would cost $1,000,000 for the company to reopen the mine, and it is expected to produce 100,000 ounces of gold at the end of next year. The forward contract price on a one-year gold forward contract is $268.40/ounce and the current one-year risk-free rate is 5 percent. Extraction costs are estimated to be $260/ounce. a. Assuming the per-ounce gold price in the spot market one year from now is forecasted to be either $300 or $230, calculate (1) the compostion of a portfolio of T–bills and gold forward contracts that would replicate the cash flows from the mine and (2) the “real options” value of the mine lease. b. Assuming the per-ounce gold price in the spot market one year from now is forecasted to be either $280 or $250, calculate (1) the compostion of a portfolio of T-bills and gold forward contracts that would replicate the cash flows from the mine, and (2) the real options value of the mine lease. c.
