Why Copper?


Demand/Shortages:

  • $140 billion world copper market
  • The copper sector needs 9 Escondida mines (2014 production- 1,141,4 kt) over the next decade in order to meet global demand (mining.com)
  • The global copper industry will need to add the equivalent of a new Escondida mine every 15 months over the next 10 years in order to meet global demand (mining.com)

Challenges ahead for the top miners: (ft.com)

  • Complexity and cost of projects and expansions means miners may not be in a position to ramp up output as fast as required
  • Escondida's (BHP & Rio) output will drop next year as a result of lower grades
  • Rio's Bingham Canyon in Utah is expected to produce less in 2015 as a result of rehabilitation work following the largest non-volcanic landslide in history
  • Oyu Tolgoi's underground expansion has been continuously delayed
