Global Copper Production Disruptions



Producers across South America, where the bulk of the world’s copper is produced, have halted or cut back operations and slowed construction projects due to restrictions caused by coronavirus.

Hong Kong-listed MMG said on Thursday that operations at its Las Bambas mine, with expected production in the 360kt range for this year had been reduced temporarily after Peru declared a state of emergency.
