SHANGHAI, Sept. 1 (SMM) – Market has been worried since the beginning of this year that copper ore output will fall sharply this year due to strike and output cuts or halts, hence potentially leading to copper supply shortfall.
However, data from World Bureau of Metal Statistics (WBMS) showed a different picture.
According to WBMS, global copper ore output dropped just 0.1% year-on-year to 10.1 million tonnes in H1 2017. Although output in Chile fell 9%, this was partly offset by higher output in other countries.
