Copper mining

Throughout this study, the term "production of copper" is to be understood as meaning the metal content of ores, concentrates and bars, refined or otherwise, which the mining industry in the various countries delivers ready for consumption or for export. By "consumption of copper" is meant the gross weight of metal processed, that is to say, the ores or concentrates directly transformed into copper sulphate, into bars, refined or otherwise, used in alloys, and refined bars used for sheet metal. In accordance with this, the copper contained in manufactured articles, which are the object of international trade, will be taken as consumed in the country in which the sheet metal is made.
