The 258th Sydney Mining Club – Leading Edge
at 5:15 pm on 6 May 2021 at the Establishment Ballroom
Leading Edge 2021 Copper Showcase
Copper is Hot!
How hot? Well world resource maestro Robert Friedland is forecasting it might even become a matter of national security as strong nations sure up their supplies leaving the less aligned starving for the red metal with ‘Each country nervous and suddenly looking at where they fit in with all these tensions that have been generated’, as he recently told audiences at the 2021 CRU World Copper Conference. ‘Balkanisation, the breakdown of free markets, is taking place’, he said.
Rubbing their hands together meanwhile are the up-and-coming players in the copper space. As Friedland says ‘there are a lot of unrealistic expectations about the availability of metals’ so what better time to top up your portfolio with any of the three copper stories we are presenting in this first Showcase?
So here is our pick of the copper crop… MD Dan Lanskey has QMines ready for IPO with a strong portfolio of copper and gold projects in Southern Queensland. Tim Mason is MD of Eagle Mountain Mining which is hooking into Arizonan copper and Martin Holland MD is leading the efforts of Cobre Limited with two projects either side of the Indian Ocean in Botswana and Western Australia.
