Precious metals such as gold are of particular interest to investors, while silver also shines as an industrial metal. However, key industries demand copper, lithium and nickel. Supply bottlenecks are looming. Copper is one of the key raw materials for the energy transition. Cables, electric cars, wind turbines and solar panels all need the metal. In Peru, the second largest copper-producing country, mining investments are estimated to have fallen to an eight-year low. Protests at the beginning of the year also affected production. Peru is rich in raw materials, but many locals are affected by the environmental impact of copper mining. As a result, demand for copper is increasing, while copper production in Peru is expected to stagnate at best. According to the German Mineral Resources Agency, global demand for copper is set to double by 2035. Copper is considered by many to be the most important metal for the energy transition.
While infrastructure projects and large construction projects were the main drivers of copper demand in the last 20 years - with China leading the way - today it is renewable energies and climate change that demand copper. If China's ailing construction industry recovers and economic growth picks up, there could be shortages of the reddish metal. Copper, with its excellent conductivity of electricity and heat, can only be replaced by other metals to a very limited extent. It is well known that lithium is also one of the main players in the energy transition. Nickel is used to refine steel products and is an essential element in the production of batteries for electric vehicles.
For example, the investor likes Gama Explorations - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/gama-explorations-inc/ -, a company that owns lithium, copper and nickel in the ground. The projects are located in Quebec and the Northwest Territories.
When it comes to copper, Aurania Resources - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/aurania-resources-ltd/ - is appealing with its The Lost Cities Cutucu project in Ecuador.
