“Digging copper has long proved one of the most damaging and life-threatening activities in the extractive sector. There might be justification for mining the red metal, so long as it is used to improve peoples’ lives – notably by bringing electricity to their homes … But there’s surely only one way to describe the type of purely speculative activity that currently seems to be driving the market to bullish heights. It’s simply criminal.”
