Copper reserves and resources according to the US

According to the latest data (USGS, 2013), known reserves of copper are around 680 million tonnes. Resources are much higher and short term supply limitations, which often result in upward price trends, act as a spur to the exploration of new deposits. Reserves are deposits that have been discovered, evaluated and assessed to be profitable.

Peak copper Wikipedia

Reserves. Copper is a fairly common element, with an estimated concentration of 50–70 ppm (0.005–0.007 percent) in earth's crust (1 kg of copper per 15–20 tons of crustal rock). A concentration of 60 ppm would multiply out to 1.66 quadrillion tonnes over the 2.77e22 kg mass of the crust, or over 90 million years' worth at the 2013 production rate of 18.3 MT per year.

Growing Global Copper Resources, Reserves and Production

Copper is vital to modern life and has an often-irreplaceable role in everyday infrastructure and technology. However, while the planet’s Cu endowment is finite, global Cu production continued to increase over the past century—a growth that has been matched by significant growth in estimated Cu mineral reserves and mineral resources.

2. Africa in world mining geography

So even if the African share of world copper reserves is only 13.5%, the concentration of these reserves on the world scale gives Africa a high potential significance, especially because of the higher grade of its ore (2.6% in Zambia against 1 % in Peru, 0.6% in Papua New Guinea and 0.5% in the USA).

Locations of Deposits

Additionally, reserve projections often underestimate the contents of the earth's crust because lower ore grade deposits may not be considered a reserve (World Nuclear Association, 2012). Demand for elements varies by element group (see Table 1) and the variety of strategic elements results in a similar variety of supply problems.
