Southern Hemisphere Mining Limited notes the comments made by BHP’s Chief Commercial Officer Vandita Pant at the FT Commodities Asia Summit earlier this month, that the global need for copper and nickel will multiply over the next 30 years.
As reported by Reuters on 17 November 2021, BHP believes that the global market need for copper may double.
“Some of the modelling that we have done showed that in, let’s say a decarbonised world … the world will need almost double the copper in the next 30 years than in the past 30,” said Vandita Pant, BHP’s Chief Commercial Officer, at the FT Commodities Asia Summit.
Southern Hemisphere Mining Limited is an experienced minerals explorer in Chile, South America. Chile is the world’s leading copper producing country and one of the most prospective regions of the world for major new copper discoveries. The Company’s projects include the Llahuin Porphyry Copper-Gold-Moly Project, the adjacent Colina 2 Gold Project, and the Los Pumas Manganese EV Battery Project, all of which were discovered by the Company.
