  • Mining tycoons are torn between the current copper prices volatility and the low levels of inventory (with significant deficits expected from 2015). Richard Adkerson, CEO of Freeport Copper for 8 years and with the company for 23 years, has just approved a $1.4-billion project to increase mining and milling capacity at the Morenci mine in Arizona, to 225 million pounds of copper a year by 2014. Is this ambitious enough?
