An engineering-economic model was used to determine the effects that U.S. state tax actions can have on U.S. copper mines operating in a world market. The copper model used in this report is based on site- and input-specific data for 65 copper operations in the United States and site-specific data for 348 copper operations in the rest of the world. These data are used to develop world shortrun and longrun supply functions that are equated with an econometric estimate of world demand and solved for price and production under various tax scenarios. The shortrun analysis included currently producing mines; deposits for which the development decision has been made and for which the financing has been arranged are included in the longrun analysis.
