Report summary

In one of the most significant divergences observed across the mining sector gold miners which in the year 2000 commanded a 50% market premium over copper miners have seen their relative valuations erode and now trade at a 25% discount relative to copper miners. We've tracked nineteen gold and pure play copper companies over a fifteen year period and discuss how and why the copper sector has outperformed despite gold prices rising faster than copper prices over the analysis period.
