China’s Enormous Appetite for Mining Assets

July 30, 2010

Toulouse – China, a country that already consumes a third of the world’s copper and 40% of its base metals, is on a buying binge in the global mining market, America’s National Mining Association reports. Last year, companies based in China or Hong Kong joined in foreign mining acquisitions totalling $13 billion, 100 times the level of activity five years ago.

Analysts believe China accounted for one-third of the value of all cross-border mining deals last year.
