Copper Will Play The Leading Role in the Global Energy Transition

Industrial metal demand skyrockets, while discovery lags and development takes longer than ever before. Now is the time to invest in copper.

The future of transportation, energy, and technology must be sustainable. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), fossil fuels accounted for over 80% of the world’s primary energy sources in 2021 and over 99% of the world’s CO2 emissions. In order to reduce CO2 emissions, we must collectively reposition energy supply away from fossil fuels to a combination of renewables including hydro, wind, solar, nuclear, and other renewable/clean technologies.

Industries all over the world are shifting to renewable, more eco-friendly ways to manufacture and power the technology we use every day. We are now seeing large-scale expansion of renewable energy generation, paired with battery technologies for delayed use or transport. As these alternatives for energy generation and storage gain popularity, the day when fossil fuels are a thing of the past is on the horizon.

Despite the progressive move away from oil, gas and coal, extractive industries will continue to play an important role in the energy transition. Demand is steadily increasing for industrial metals including lithium, rare earths, copper and nickel which are vital to the development of new, sustainable technologies. Chief among those is copper due to its irreplaceable capacity to conduct electricity.

Global Copper Demand is Expected to Soar

According to Robert Minter, Director of ETF Investment Strategy at abrdn: “New supplies of industrial metals like copper are near-all-time low levels […] Maybe we have enough copper to meet current demand, but we can’t take any significant demand surprises in industrial metals. […] U.S., Europe and China are all chasing the same metals used for renewable energy, and there is concern that there isn’t enough material for everyone.”

Supporting Mr. Minter’s statements, the International Copper Association cites that demand for copper in power cables alone will likely rise to 8.7M metric tonnes by 2035. Aside from its use in electric vehicle (EV) batteries, copper is essential to the rollout of EV charging infrastructure. According to the International Copper Alliance, EV charging ports are expected to increase from 3.2M in 2021 to 152.3M stations by 2040 as EV uptake grows. This is forecast to push copper demand to 978,000 metric tonnes for this application alone in the next 18 years.

Copper and Renewable Energy Sources

Copper demand forecast to increase in most key areas of the energy transition. Expansion in solar and wind power will drive demand for copper production vs current fossil fuel sources. For example, global demand for copper in cables to power solar technologies is expected to rise from 980,000 metric tonnes in 2021 to 6.4M by 2040.

Copper and Electric Vehicles

Of course, as we discuss copper’s part in production of sustainable technologies, we cannot neglect to mention electric vehicles (EVs).

Setting aside the copper used in the vehicles themselves, copper is essential to production of EV charging ports. According to the International Copper Alliance, EV charging ports are expected to increase from 3.2M in 2021 to 152.3M by 2040. This will likely push copper demand to 978,000 metric tonnes in this area alone in the next 18 years.

In the wake of the pandemic, global inflation rates, and supply chain disruptions, the copper market has seen significant fluctuations, but the overall trend continues to rise. And, with these use cases, demand is expected to continue to rise over the coming decades.

 

Further, according to a report from Bernstein, copper production has a much lower impact on the environment than other major industrial metals. Steel production, for example, makes up 9.5% of global emissions, whereas copper production represents around 0.17%. Thus, copper is not only a critical component in production of more sustainable technologies, but its production cost and environmental impact are also much lower than other industrial metals – making it an attractive asset for the long term.

Aguila Copper Corp. Projects

Sherridon Project – a VHMS Copper Project

Located in the renowned Flin Flon – Snow Lake VHMS camp of northern Manitoba, the Sherridon Project is a highly-prospective copper project. VHMS deposits are a globally significant deposit class and are potentially massive in size, containing some of the highest grades of any copper-rich deposit style in the world.

 

Under an Option Agreement signed in January 2022, Aguila can earn a 90% stake in Sherridon primarily by incurring $2 million in exploration expenditures on the project over a seven-year period.

Mineral Resources Estimate (2010)

Indicated 122 million pounds Cu; 176 million pounds Zn; 77,000 ounces Au; 1.56 million ounces Ag Inferred 240 million pounds Cu; 294 million pounds Zn; 141,000 ounces Au; 2.94 million ounces Ag

Cora Project – a 100%-Owned Porphyry Project in Arizona

Approximately 75 kilometers from Tucson, Arizona, Cora is in the heart of southern Arizona’s copper belt and is located within 100 kilometers of at least five major copper mines and/or development projects. Porphyry copper deposits – which can contain large quantities of low-grade copper as well as gold, silver and molybdenum – comprise about 75% of the world’s copper supply.

Lida Project – a 100%-Owned Porphyry Project in Nevada

Situated in the Walker Lane Mineral Belt, an area well known for copper and gold deposits, the Lida Project is a fully-owned porphyry project. Numerous mines in the region have produced substantial quantities of these metals.
