Abstract
The U.S. copper industry's domestic operations, referred to in this report as the domestic copper industry, were severely affected by the 1982 recession. About half of its mine productivity capacity was idled by late summer 1982, and in mid-1983, about 40% of it remained idled. Most of the closed mines and processing plants were expected to reopen as the economy improved, but a difficutly in competing successfully in the copper market was considered a possibility for some. This Bureau of Mines report presents comprehensive data on copper including strategic considerations, problems, technology trends and developments, reserves-resources, supply-demand relationships, economic factors and problems, operating factors and problems, and outlook to 2000.
