When we think about infrastructure, there are many inputs that go into building the world as we know it today. One of those essential inputs is copper. This metal is used throughout the energy production process, from generation and transmission to distribution and consumption, but also comes onto our roads in electric vehicles (EVs). In order to maintain and improve our grid, however, we’ll need even more copper. Copper demand will soon outrun supply, so we must support new and expanding copper mines here in the U.S.
Arizona Metals Corp. is currently developing the Kay Mine Deposit project and, in January 2023, announced discovery of a new zone of copper-gold mineralization. The Kay Mine Deposit is currently in its drilling phase, exploring for materials in mine land dating back past 1900. Supporting new mines – and fixing the permitting process – is an important link in the supply chains that support our infrastructure.
