$Codelco raises Europe copper premium by 31% in bullish signal
Bloomberg News | October 11, 2021 | 8:42 am Markets Europe Copper

Codelco offered to supply copper to European customers at a $128 premium over futures next year, signaling that the world’s biggest copper miner expects strong demand to continue even as growth headwinds swirl.


Codelco boosted its annual premium by $30 a ton, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified discussing private information. The offer is $5 higher than the premium announced by leading European producer Aurubis.

SIGN UP FOR THE COPPER DIGEST


The miner made its offer at the start of London Metal Exchange Week, when producers, consumers and traders convene in the U.K. capital to thrash out supply deals for the coming year. While copper demand has been booming, rampant inflation and the burgeoning global energy crisis are casting a pall over the growth outlook. Rising freight rates have also raised costs for suppliers like Codelco.

One key risk for manufacturers is that the global economy shifts into a period of stagflation, where demand in sectors like consumer goods and construction plunges while raw materials prices remain stubbornly high.

Even so, with unprecedented stimulus funding now feeding its way into metals-intensive renewables projects, manufacturers are also conscious of the risk that demand will outpace supply. Nexans, a leading cable-maker, has said it will bulk up in copper recycling to insulate itself against future shortages.

The Codelco premium was earlier reported by Fastmarkets.

$Nevada Copper Provides Update on Accelerating Stope Production and Ramp-Up Progress and Announces Appointment of Chief Executive Officer
T.NCU
YERINGTON, Nev., Oct. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --




$Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) (OTC: NEVDD) (“Nevada Copper” or the “Company”) today provided a further update on positive September operational performance at the Company’s underground mine at its Pumpkin Hollow Project (the “Underground Mine”). In addition, the Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Randy Buffington as President and Chief Executive Officer, further strengthening its senior management team as operational productivity and production ramp-up at the Underground Mine.
September Operational Highlights

Higher Copper Production: Copper in concentrate produced during September increased by 265% compared to August driven by higher stope production. Approximately 30,386 tons of ore were processed yielding 682 tons of concentrate at an average grade of 22%, resulting in approximately 150 tons of copper production.
Improved rate of stope turnover: Stoping has accelerated significantly since mid-August, with the second and third stope panels fully mined and a fourth stope panel expected to be mined this week. Further stopes are planned in October and November, and the high-grade Sugar Cube zone is also expected to begin to be mined during Q4.
Increasing Development Rates: September saw the highest monthly development footage achieved since April 2021, with a 12% increase over August. Development activities included completion of the crossing of the water bearing dike, accessing additional stoping zones and installation of development infrastructure. A total of approximately 750 lateral equivalent feet was advanced in September.
Mike Brown, outgoing Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “I am very pleased to see the improved trajectory in our production ramp-up and a recovery in productivities. The increased ore production was a key objective for September, and together with the improving productivities on site, along with the ongoing management strengthening, provide further confidence in the mine ramp-up.”

Management Update


Randy Buffington will join Nevada Copper as President and Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect. With extensive experience in underground and open pit mining operations, both in Nevada and internationally, Mr. Buffington has successfully delivered multiple project ramp-ups and productivity improvements in an underground setting, in addition to overseeing the development and operation of multiple large open pit projects. Most recently at Hycroft Mining, he was responsible for the operational reforms, successfully executing a project turnaround and delivering significant shareholder value as President and Chief Executive Officer. Previously, he held various senior management positions with Barrick from 2003 to 2012, overseeing North American and Zambian operations. He also held senior management positions with Placer Dome and Cominco.

Mr. Buffington brings a deep industry network in Nevada and a strong track record of value delivery in both operating underground mines and large open pit projects, ideally positioning him to lead Nevada Copper towards the delivery of steady state production from its Underground Mine and realizing the full potential of its fully-permitted open pit project and extensive landholdings within the Yerington Copper District.

“The addition of Mr. Buffington further strengthens the Company’s senior management team and provides deeply experienced, long-term leadership as the Company moves to complete the ramp-up of the Underground Mine and go on to maximize the full value of its open pit project and exploration targets,” stated Stephen Gill, Chairman of Nevada Copper.

“I look forward to working with the team at Nevada Copper as we continue to push and improve productivity and accelerate our transition into a commercial producer,” stated Randy Buffington, President and CEO of Nevada Copper. “There is a tremendous foundation to build on at Pumpkin Hollow and I am pleased to be leading the Company towards realizing its full potential as a mid-tier copper producer.”

Mike Brown will step down as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer and continue his active involvement and oversight through his ongoing role as director.

“On behalf of the Company, I would like to thank Mike Brown for his commitment as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, and I look forward to his continued active involvement going forward,” stated Mr. Gill.
