Analyzing the Major Copper Mines Worldwide
The mining industry has been key to the development of civilization, underpinning the iron and bronze ages, the industrial revolution and the infrastructure of today's information age. Downstream beneficiation and minerals processing of these raw materials adds further value as raw materials and products are created to serve all aspects of industry and commerce worldwide.

Copper is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Cu and atomic number 29. It is a ductile metal with excellent electrical conductivity, and finds extensive use as an electrical conductor, heat conductor, as a building material, and as a component of various alloys. Copper has played a significant part in the history of mankind, which has used the easily accessible uncompounded metal for nearly 10,000 years. Civilizations in places like Iraq, China, Egypt, Greece and the Sumerian cities all have early evidence of using copper.

Aruvian's R'search brings an entire in-depth coverage of the 25 major copper mines of the world in the research report Analyzing the Major Copper Mines Worldwide. This extensive report covers comprehensive profiles of the copper mines worldwide, which includes production data, location data, geographic data, and much more.
