    project... a mine as in this example... if we are to take the project to be a mine as is the case here, then the cost is depreciated over the estimated life of the mine. now, we can of course get into the details of determining depreciable life, slicing costs into stages, depreciating different items at different lives, etc... but i am pretty sure that goes way beyond the point that was initially brought up... and that was... "how will the recent capex announced plans impact the upcoming earnings release?"... answer... not one bit...
