The copper mining industries include companies carrying out activities such as developing mine sites and preparing copper ores and recovering copper concentrates through precipitation, leaching and elector wining copper ores.
The global copper mining market was valued at $69.94 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $36.2 billion or 51.8% of the global market. China was the largest country accounting for $16.6 billion or 23.8% of the global copper mining market.
Autonomous drilling systems are being implemented by the copper mining industries to enhance safety, efficiency and productivity. This technology is being used to accurately identify drill location and drill production blast holes more effectively using advanced levelling technologies. Blasting can also be monitored from remote locations, thereby significantly reducing safety and health concerns. For instance, BHP Billiton is using Pit Viper 271 rotary blasthole drill rigs for its mining operations in Western Australia.
The companies covered are Codelco, Glencore, BHP Billiton, Southern Copper, and Freeport.
The countries covered are USA, China, Germany, Brazil, Japan, UK, Spain, Russia, France, Australia, Italy, India and rest of the world.
