Zambia’s 2018 copper output to be above last year’s 800,000 tonnes

Zambia’s 2018 copper production is projected to rise above the 800,000 tonnes produced last year, its Minister of Finance Margaret Mwanakatwe said in a statement on Monday.

Copper output in 2018 continued to increase with a total of 696,526 tonnes produced between January and October, compared with 654,743 tonnes in the same period in 2017, Mwanakatwe said.

“The fairly high global copper prices which averaged $6,598 (per tonne) and demand provided the impetus for copper production,” Mwanakatwe said.
