Copper exports from the port of Matarani have resumed after anti-mining protests that had blocked key infrastructure in the country’s southern copper belt eased over the weekend.
Shipments from four mines that produce about half of Peru’s copper – Freeport-McMoRan Inc’s Cerro Verde deposit, MMG Ltd’s Las Bambas, Glencore PLC’s Antapaccay and Hudbay Mineral’s Constancia – had been suspended for nearly three weeks due to the unrest. China issued a third batch of quotas for imports of recently restricted type of scrap metals, including another 87,680 tonnes of high-grade copper scrap, as the world’s top metals consumer continues to tightly control waste shipments.
The quotas are being closely watched amid concerns that China is leaving itself short of a key supply source by curbing scrap imports. Copper scrap accounted for around 10% of China’s total copper consumption last year. The China Solid Waste and Chemicals Management Bureau, a unit of the country’s Ministry of Ecology and Environment, also awarded quotas for another 11,290 tonnes of aluminium scrap and a single quota for 400 tonnes of steel scrap.
