Copper, Nickel, Lead & Zinc Mining in Canada
The Copper, Nickel, Lead and Zinc Mining industry is heavily reliant on the market prices of the metals it produces. Canada is the ninth-largest producer of copper and the fifth-largest producer of nickel in the world. Therefore, the prices of these metals heavily influence the industry's performance. The industry also produces zinc and, to a significantly lesser extent, lead. Industry operators will continue to seek additional measures to reduce mine operation costs, effectively increasing profitability in the five years to 2022. Like other mining industries, companies in this industry must actively explore for or acquire mineral assets on a regular basis.
Operators within this industry primarily mine ores valued for their copper, nickel, lead or zinc content. Companies may also covert mined ore into concentrates for further downstream processing.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
