Q: Who should i focus on for copper. Manageable debt to survive any economic down turn, mining in stable political countries, low cost production, reasonable life of current mine(s) for future supply.

Q: I'm thinking of taking some positions in base metals companies. I'm especially interested in copper plays as it seems to be needed to support the drive to electrification. Do you think this is and opportune time to initate positions? In any case, I would appreciate it if you would share some of your favorite companies in this sector and it would help if you would present them in order of most upside to least going forward. I'm open to metals. other than copper as well.
