COPPER LEVERAGE: A revamped minerals-for-infrastructure deal between the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and China’s Sicomines is contingent on the price of copper. Under the new contract, DRC will get $324-million yearly for infrastructure projects from its Chinese partners through to 2040 as long as the copper price remains above $8000/t.
