Dr. Copper is getting excited with the prospect of the returned growth in China and "The Wall" being built. Can you imagine how much copper do we need for all that security lighting on that Wall? Copper means infrastructure and we need a lot of it now. Everybody is searching for the new drivers for GDP growth as central banksters are getting out of favor and cannot really deliver anything more. 2% of GDP growth with the real Inflation hitting over 5% - it is called Deflation. All commodities have been indicating exactly that during last few years of the meltdown. But not anymore, a new phase will come with the Energy rEVolution manufacturing infrastructure being put in place now. China is leading the world here, but nobody can allow being left behind. It is all about business now after all.
First Rio Tinto went positive on China and copper respectively a few weeks ago and later BHP was talking about the electrification of transportation as the major driving trend for the demand of industrial metals going forward. Now we have the most important part of this development - real capital is flowing into the sector.
TNR Gold is sitting tight with its assets in Los Azules giant copper project in Argentina managed by McEwen Mining. We had a change of the government over there this year with the new pro-business mining friendly policies being implemented. Now we have Dr. Copper supporting our case for the growth. Los Azules copper project is very highly leveraged to the copper price and McEwen Mining, according to the reported news, is conducting its new PEA reflecting the reduced CAPEX and start with a high-grade operation to advance the project faster.

TNR Gold And McEwen Mining Los Azules Copper: Rio Turns China Optimist, Sees Copper’s ‘Twilight Zone’ Exit.
"China is turning the corner advancing its strategic plan for the new economic growth based on the New Energy Plan. Copper and Lithium are part of this plan to secure the supply of the strategic commodities for the years ahead. Now it is time to check out our Los Azules Copper story again.

TNR Gold And McEwen Mining's Los Azules In Argentina - Copper Miners Pin Hopes On Electric Cars After Tesla's Success.
"Timing is everything. And you will never have the perfect one, once decided - just be there. And if you managed to survive "the wrong timing" and can even add to your position, just do it. This is the only advice I can share.
Argentina is changing very fast now under the new leadership and we can stretch our imagination that one day it will not only export its commodities like Copper and Lithium, but actually will become the power force behind the Energy rEVolution. Elon Musk with 325,000 orders for Tesla Model 3 has confirmed that consumers are ready to buy the best electric cars. Now Financial Times spells you the connection between The Next Industrial Energy rEVolution and Green Energy Metal - Copper. Copper goes everywhere in the 21st century: you will find it in electric motors, in new charging stations and wiring, in Wind and Solar installations with Smart Grids. China has a military plan to acquire and build its own resource base for strategic commodities like Lithium and Copper. Argentina can do much better than just supply the Hungry Red Dragon, it can produce lithium batteries and electric cars at least for South America one day. It is not such a stretch in the end: Chinese BYD backed by Warren Buffett is building its lithium batteries Megafactory in Brazil next door; and electric buses and lithium batteries plants in Argentina. International Lithium and TNR Gold are very well positioned in the creation of the secure supply chain for strategic commodities for Energy rEVolution with Lithium and Copper. Read more."
TNR Gold and McEwen Mining: Los Azules Copper - China Wants To Buy More Copper Mines To Secure Its Supply.
"Collapse in commodity prices has come with China economy downturn and will go with its transition to the internal consumption - security of supply for strategic commodities will always stay. China is moving very fast into the Next Industrial Energy rEVolution. Electric cars and Solar Energy are the new strategic industries and part of the 5-year plan. To secure the raw materials for this leapfrog jump directly into the post-carbon economy there is the military plan in action. China is already the center of Lithium Universe and controls 75% of Lithium Hydroxide which goes into Tesla Batteries. Now it is the follow-up plan to secure the Copper supply when asset prices are depressed. Las Bambas was the first step and now next projects will follow. Los Azules giant copper project in Argentina is very well positioned for TNR Gold and McEwen Mining for these developments. Read more."
