Timetric's 'Global Copper Mining to 2020' report comprehensively covers global reserves of copper by country, the historic and forecast data on copper production, prices and copper metal consumption.
The report also includes demand drivers for global copper, profiles of major copper producing companies in the world and information on the active, exploration and development copper projects.
It is an essential tool for companies active in the global copper mining landscape and for new competitors considering entering the industry.
Global copper reserves were 720 million tonnes (Mt), with Chile dominating with 210Mt or 29.2% of the total. This was followed by Australia with 88Mt (12.2%), Peru with 82Mt (11.4%) and Mexico with 46Mt (6.4%).
Copper is available in different forms, including sulfide deposits, carbonate deposits and silicate deposits. Porphyry copper deposits are the main source of copper, and approximately 60% of the world's copper is sourced from these deposits, followed by sediment-hosted stratabound deposits with 20%.
The report contains an overview of the global copper mining industry together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodity.
It also provides information about global copper reserves, the historic and forecast data on copper production, prices, copper metal consumption, the competitive landscape and active, exploration and development copper projects.
