Copper - Declining copper ore grades AME

Zambia’s average copper grade per tonne of ore mined dropped from 1.26% in 2014 to 0.80% in 2017 largely due to the ramping up of First Quantum’s large, low-grade Sentinel open-pit mine that at full capacity will produce 270ktpa of copper in concentrate from 55Mtpa of ore grading approximately 0.55% copper in its first ten years.

Modelling future copper ore grade decline based on a ...

Scenarios for production from major copper deposit types and from individual countries or regions were developed using the Geologic Resources Supply-Demand Model (GeRS-DeMo). These scenarios were extended using cumulative grade-tonnage data, derived from our resource database, to produce estimates of potential rates of copper ore grade decline.
