Copper

Copper, one of the oldest commodities known to man, is a product whose fortunes directly reflect the state of the world's economy. It is the world's third most widely used metal, after iron and aluminum, and is primarily used in highly cyclical industries such as construction and industrial machinery manufacturing. Profitable extraction of the metal depends on cost-efficient high-volume mining techniques, and supply is sensitive to the political situation, particularly in those countries where copper mining is a government-controlled enterprise.

Copper was first worked about 7,000 years ago. It's softness, color, and presence in nature enabled it to be easily mined and fashioned into primitive utensils, tools, and weapons. Five thousand years ago, man learned to alloy copper with tin, producing bronze and giving rise to a new age. Thus copper was established as a commodity with commercial value.

In the early 20th century, new mining and smelting techniques were developed in the United States which made it possible to process lower-grade ores, resulting in a dramatic global expansion of the copper market.
