Which metals could make the race in 2019
A hoped-for cease-fire in the trade war should eliminate fears of growth. The global economy and China's economy should grow. In 2018 China produced more than nine million tonnes of copper refined, eight per cent more than in 2017. But from a global perspective there is a supply deficit. And Chile announced that there would be supply shortfalls.
The rebuilding of the smelters at the Chuquicamata and Salvador mines in Chile will result in a shortfall of around 200,000 tonnes of copper refined products. According to the experts at BMO Capital Markets, things are looking bad for the necessary copper supply. By 2025 they expect a global supply deficit of three million tonnes of copper per year. Industry expert Goldman Sachs sees things similarly.
Copper is not only the economic metal needed for infrastructure measures, but also the booming electromobility devours copper. After all, electric cars contain around two to four times as much copper as conventional vehicles.
Falling copper yields and copper mines whose lives have ended dominate the picture, especially in Canada and the USA. It is good that some companies have copper in their projects in addition to gold and silver, such as Panoro Minerals or Auryn Resources.
Panoro Minerals' projects are in resource-rich Peru and two of the projects - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298798, the Cotabambas Copper-Gold-Silver Project and the Antilla Copper-Molybdenum Project, are advanced.
Auryn Resources - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298815 - recently scored with significant copper discoveries on its Sombrero project. This also earned the company a buy recommendation from H.C.Wainwright. Auryn Resources is also pursuing gold projects in Nunavut, British Columbia and other gold projects in southern Peru.
