LONDON--(Marketwire - Nov 30, 2012) - Copper prices took a tumble in 2011, as demand levels waned due in part to a slowdown in China and Europe. This year prices have risen slightly, and a number of positive indicators could signal continued growth for the remainder of the year and into 2013. This bodes well for companies with copper operations, such as Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (NYSE: FCX) and BHP Billiton Ltd. (NYSE: BHP).

The biggest plus for copper is the potential turn around in China. A number of indicators point to a possible increase in economic growth moving forward, and with the government recently earmarking around $156 billion for infrastructure projects, demand for copper looks poised to grow.
Increasing or maintaining production levels has also been a focus of several companies in the industry, though results have varied of late. In its most recent quarter, Freeport saw its consolidated sales from mines drop from 947 million pounds of copper to 922 million pounds when compared year-over-year. BHP Billiton managed to increase 3rd quarter copper production by 24% year-over-year. See what our analysts have to say on BHP Billiton Ltd. Follow the Link below
