Copper is one of the important metals in modern life. When it comes to the energy transition and the change in mobility, the red metal is of great importance. In the global competition between industrial market players, access and price therefore play an important role. Raw material nations such as Canada supply the market with the ingredient of countless technical devices, which are often produced in the Middle Kingdom. For this reason, it is particularly interesting to hear the opinion of an expert. Claudia Tornquist is the CEO of Kodiak Copper Corp. and is exploring for new copper deposits in British Columbia.

    Full interview


    What is your view on the current global copper market and what advice do you have for investors?

    ‘At this time there is a lot of uncertainty around the global economy with concerns about recession, cost inflation, supply chain disruptions and more. This uncertainty weighs on copper prices and we have seen a reversal of sentiment in the market. Speculative investors have gone risk-off, even though the physical copper market remains robust, producers are reporting strong demand from customers and inventories remain at historical lows. If the sentiment turns, we could see the market rebound quickly.

    The long-term picture for copper remains extremely strong: big demand for the red metal driven by the green revolution, and very little supply to meet this demand. 85% of the world economy is now on a net-zero carbon goal and a lot of copper will be required to build the electric vehicles, wind and solar systems and transmission infrastructure to meet these targets. There are currently not enough new copper projects being developed to meet even modest growth forecasts and more copper discoveries are needed.

    That’s exactly the business Kodiak Copper is in, we made the Gate Zone copper porphyry discovery at our MPD project in Southern British Columbia, which is located in an established mining district with excellent infrastructure. The company is backed by a strong team led by founder and chairman Chris Taylor of Great Bear fame. Kodiak is currently executing a large, fully-funded 25,000 metre drill program and is well placed to generate shareholder value by expanding the Gate Zone which remains open in multiple directions plus testing multiple additional targets with similar discovery potential.’

    Kodiak Copper, Nordex, BYD - Copper price indicates recovery of the economy!

    • Mining
    • Copper
    • Electromobility
    • Battery

    Copper is considered a leading indicator of the economy. The red metal is built into almost all electrical products and is needed in many industries. If we compare the spot price of copper with the futures, we can see that the premium per metric ton has increased significantly. This is matched by the fact that China imported 8.1% more copper through August, despite the country's Zero-COVID strategy. In contrast, Chile, one of the largest copper producers, exported less than last year. So supply remains tight, partly due to demand from Europe, which is significantly expanding renewables. So today, we look at three companies around copper.

    BYD, Globex Mining, Newmont, Freeport-McMoRan - Copper with doubling potential

    • Commodities
    • Electromobility

    The price of copper has lost around a third since March of the current stock market year. Investors are selling the metal, which is known as an economic barometer, due to global recession fears and concerns of a drop in demand. However, due to the great importance of copper with regard to the energy turnaround, the tide is likely to turn again soon. Mining companies and commodity traders are already warning of a massive shortage of the world's most important metal. Goldman Sachs expects the price of copper to reach USD 15,000 per ton by 2025, which would mean a doubling of the current level.
