I hope I didn't get your meaning wrong. You are planning on doing all of this work with an 8 man crew, right?

If so..................

64hrs. X 8 man crew = 512MH/cut X 32Cuts = 16,384MH's.

I DID transpose two numbers, but the result is similar.....

$325,000.00 / 16,384MH's = $19.84/MH.

Also...I'm just interested in how you'd schedule this to have it completed in a timely fashion. Admittedly, this is beyond anything I do or am interested in. But, that's a lot of MH's to fit in. I've dealt with (another profession) many times these numbers. I'm just interested in how you're thinking this through (scheduling).

Like I said, I hope it works out for you (if it's profitable).

2,048 is HOURS....not MH's.

Multiply the above by 8, now....and see where you stand.

6 day rotation...i have estimated high for the mh's to cover any unforseen issues...
