I graduated from the University of Sonora with a bachelor’s degree in mining engineering, with a strong background in mining software and open pit operations. I work at Promine as an Account Executive, reaching out to clients, giving demos, training and webinars, suggesting new updates and improvements, participating in marketing activities and more. I aspire to be part of the change in perception for the mining industry, since I believe it can work with the environment and society in a sustainable manner. Also, to help innovate in this leading industry. On my free time I enjoy going on a walk or run with my dog, spending time with my family, catching up with friends, read an autobiography or fiction, do environmental community work. “If it can’t be grown, it has to be mined.”

Everyone in the market right now has its eyes on copper prices ever since its recent high rise in years, to over $3.70 per pound.

It is speculated that this recent surge in prices has to do with the metal’s high demand for future technology used in renewable resources. So copper mines and are all in to take advantage and fasten their projects to start production.

They have announced a completed offering of $400 million aggregate principal, amount of 7.0% senior secured notes due in 2026. Taking this into the equation, they will have $131 million available for capital expenditures, working capital and general corporate purposes. This will help strengthen their financial position and lower capital cost.

Taseko stated that Florence is one of the least capital-intensive copper production facilities with an estimated $0.90 per pound of copper once operating and a production of 40,000 tons of high-quality cathode copper annually for the US market.
