Cochilco copper commission sees 3.5% drop in copper output

Chile’s mining minister, Baldo Prokuric, projected a decline in Chile’s copper output of 200,000 tonnes due to the economic effects of the pandemic. Prokurica said the Cochilco copper commission’s projection, representing around 3.5% of Chile’s total 2019 production, was a best guess since the combined impact of the virus and economic fallout made it “very difficult” to predict with certainty.
