READ: Xanadu Mines upbeat about strong copper market fundamentals

The company’s managing director and CEO Andrew Stuart spoke at Proactive’s CEO Sessions in Melbourne and Sydney last month about the annual copper shortage of up to 10 million tonnes which is forecast by 2027.

He said the company was well placed to help meet this shortage with its Kharmagtai project in southern Mongolia “marching towards” being a tier-1 discovery.

Ongoing drilling is returning broad, high-grade results which look certain to add to the existing resource.
