Base Metals Mining in Poland to 2020 – a Focus on the Copper Industry

Poland had the world's eighth-largest global reserves of copper in January 2015, at 28Mt or 4% of the global total. Most Polish copper ores are of the stratabound type, located in the areas of Fore-Sudetic Monocline and North Sudetic Basin in Lower Silesia. Demand for copper is mainly driven by the construction and electronics industries. The country imported majority of copper ores and concentrates from Brazil, Morocco, Australia and Botswana – collectively accounting for 99.7% of total copper ores and concentrates imports in 2014.
