. What is it used for? Copper is used for building construction, power generation, wiring, heating and cooling systems, telecommunication links we use everyday Some factors that influence the use of copper are the pricing, and the availability of this resource. When copper is released into the soil the animals will absorb the chemical and it will damage their health. Only a limited number of plants can grow in copper rich soil. Non-Renewable or Renewable NON-RENEWABLE or RENEWABLE Copper is considered as a nonrenewable resource. the reason why is because the Earth as only a certain limit to that natural resource . Even though copper is one of the most recycled metal in the world and it can be reused multiple time it is still non-renewable. In Canada, Copper is found in almost all the provinces and territories. The Highland Valley Copper Mine, located in British Columbia, is the largest copper mine in Canada and one of the largest copper mining and concentrating operations in the world!
If we continue to
use copper, like we do at the
moment, then there will only be
enough left for 30-50 years more. This is why people have started to recycle old wire and other objects that contain this source Which Countries Buy Copper? Where is Copper found in Canada? The Countries that buy copper are Italy, Belgium, Venezuela, Pakistan and ect. Countries such as China use copper to recover their economy.
