By Ars Technic staffMarch 14, 2018 05:17:22As of Thursday, March 13, 2018, the US Geological Survey has issued a statement stating that copper-ridge mining will be permanently suspended.
This comes after an increase in COVID infections due to the coronavirus.
According to the statement, “Copper-ridge mining has been an economic activity in the US for more than 40 years and employs thousands of people.”
This is because of its high production and high demand, which has generated massive profits.
However, in recent weeks, there have been reports of the resurgence of COVID in the region, including at a copper-rich mine located on the shores of Lake Erie in the western part of the state of Michigan.
Copper has also been mined in Pennsylvania and Kentucky in recent years.
As the statement states, “COVID-15 is now spreading across much of the country, including in places like the Rocky Mountain region, where copper mining is common.
There are no easy answers for the resurgence and, with that in mind, we will continue to work closely with state and local authorities to protect the health of our communities.”
Copper mining in the Midwest, however, has remained profitable.
The company says that it expects to make a profit in 2018, up from $2.5 million in 2018.
“Copper is a versatile metal that can be used in a wide range of industries, from aerospace and military aircraft to consumer electronics,” the company said in a statement.
“It is important that copper be used responsibly, because it contributes significantly to the U.S. economy.
Mining, mining, mining.”
