Base Metals Mining in China to 2020

Base Metals Mining in China to 2020

Synopsis

Timetric's 'Base Metals Mining in China to 2020' report comprehensively covers Chinese reserves of base metals (copper, lead, nickel and zinc), reserves by geographical region, grade and type of ore, the historical and forecast data on base metals (copper, lead, nickel and zinc) production, base metals production by province, copper, lead, nickel and zinc consumption and consumption by end use and imports by country. The report also includes demand drivers affecting base metals mining in China, profiles of major copper, lead, nickel and zinc producing companies and information on the active, exploration and development base metal projects.The fiscal regime section provides information about the country’s regulatory authority, laws, licenses and other fiscal regime information such as taxes, rates and other charges applicable to the mining of the commodity in the country. It is an essential tool for companies active in Chinese mining, and for new competitors considering entering the industry.

Summary

In terms of base metal reserves (lead, zinc, copper and nickel), China had the world’s second-largest lead reserves after Australia, with 14 million tonnes (Mt) or 16% of the global total as of February 2015, with these reserves spread across the provinces of Inner Mongolia, Yunnan, Guangdong and Sichuan. Its zinc reserves were 43Mt or 18.3% of global zinc reserves, ranking second after Australia and are found mainly in the provinces of Inner Mongolia, Yunnan, Gansu, Sichuan and Guangdong. The country had the sixth largest reserves of copper at 30.0Mt, accounting for 4.3% of the global total.
