Copper production to take a quantum leap in this mining nation

It's been a tough week for the copper mining sector in Chile, with S&P downgrading the country’s sovereign debt for the first time since the 1990s, because of lower copper prices, and workers at the Zaldivar mine voting for yet another strike in the Chilean sector.

News elsewhere suggests Chile may have even more to worry about when it comes to copper, with one of the country’s competitors coming on fast — perhaps even moving to challenge for world’s top spot in copper output.
