A new data released by Statistics Botswana suggests that the country’s copper production has been on an upswing. The statistics agency stated that copper’s quarter-on-quarter production increased by 7.8 percent in the second quarter of 2023 rising from 13, 757 tonnes in Q1 to 14, 872 tonnes.

In the second quarter of 2022 copper in concentrates production stood at a little over 10, 000 tonnes and in the same quarter of 2023 copper in concentrate rose to over 16, 000 tonnes, an increase of over 50%.

The uptick in copper production is the result of increased players in the copper industry with newly opened mines such as the Motheo Copper Mine having sent out its first copper production.
