Climate change requires copper and nickel


Inventories of both metals are low.

Demand from China is important for the industrial metals markets. China\-s announcements of aid measures regarding the real estate sector, which is in crisis, are currently having a positive effect. The LMEX index (London Metal Exchange Index), which represents the price development of the largest metal exchange in the world, the LME (aluminum, copper, lead, tin, zinc, nickel) was therefore able to further extend its gains. Not so positive were the activity data from China for October. Retail sales and also industrial production were lower than expected. The weakening real estate sector probably had a causal effect. Should the Middle Kingdom relax its zero-covid policy, this should give a boost to the metals, thus also copper and nickel.

Even though copper has come back somewhat in terms of price, the price for a ton of copper is still well above the recent average of US$7,600 per ton. A ton of nickel currently costs just under US$25,000. Nickel is needed in stainless steel products, so it should be used in the construction of many homes in China. Another important use of nickel is in exhaust catalysts. The sharp rise in e-mobility could even make nickel a scarce raw material in the coming years. Energy storage systems in electric drives need nickel. Copper is also used in electric cars, and much more so than in conventional vehicles, so the future looks bright for these two metals.

The same applies to companies that own these raw materials, such as Canada Nickel Company – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RZ8N_WNFxo – with its flagship Crawford project in Ontario. A feasibility study should be completed soon.

Among the copper companies, Copper Mountain Mining is pleasing. The company owns 75 percent of the producing Copper Mountain Mine in British Columbia.
