North America's copper MVPs

There are few countries that can compete with the US and Canada when it comes to copper. Chile is the only country which beats their combined output, while the two countries are ranked fourth in the world in terms of reserves, according to the United States Geological Survey.

With all of this copper being produced and those potential tonnes in the ground, it is no wonder there are many developments in the pipeline, even with a circa-US$6,000/t copper price.
