Copper is one of the most used metals in the world and its value is constantly pointing toward a bull market. Although copper prices took a slight retreat in 2022, some forecasts show copper price could rise to an average of $9,580 per MT in 2023 and $10,400 per MT in 2026. Along with copper, zinc is a highly essential metal used in electric vehicles and other infrastructures.
Emerita Resources Corp. (TSXV:EMO; OTC:EMOTF; FRA:LLJA) is a Canadian natural resource company that acquires, explores and develops mineral properties in Spain. The company has a 100-percent interest in the Iberian Belt West (IBW) project and the Nuevo Tintillo project located in the famous Iberian Pyrite Belt in southern Spain.The area is one of the most productive volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) terranes in the world, offering well-established infrastructure and ease of access. In March 2021, Spanish authorities declared underground mining a preferred economic development activity for the region. The European Union recently passed legislation that will mandate 10 percent to 40 percent of all mining, recycling and processing of critical raw materials used in the bloc must be done within the EU by 2030. Potentially deemed a “strategic project” by the EU, Emerita is positioned to benefit from a streamlined and predictable permitting process that will significantly reduce waiting times. This is in addition to the Spanish government’s previously announced commitment to growing the Iberian Pyrite Belt and designating underground mining as a strategically important activity.
