In order to fill a potential supply gap of 8 million tons by 2034, mining companies need prices that are higher than $10,000 a ton and possibly as high as $12,000, says Trafigura Group chief executive officer Jeremy Weir.

Weir made his comments Tuesday during a presentation at the CRU World Copper Conference in Santiago, where the copper industry is gathering for one of the industry’s biggest annual events.
