Copper: The Anatomy of an Industry

Copper: The Anatomy of an Industry

By Sir Ronald Prain

Mining Journal Books, 1975, 298 pp.

Against a background of history, technology, and geography, we are given a succinct, lucid account of how the world copper industry works-or has worked in recent years. A veteran of the business, Sir Ronald is optimistic about future supply and demand and sounds far more relaxed about host governments than some of his colleagues.
