For nearly 5,000 years, copper was the only metal known to man. Today, it’s one of the most used and reused of our “modern” metals. Look closely at the next penny you see and consider these bright facts about copper:
- The copper on that penny maybe as old as the pharaohs, because copper has an infinite recyclable life. Copper, by itself or in any of its alloys, such as brass or bronze, is used over and over again.
- Copper was first used by humans more than 10,000 years ago. A copper pendant discovered in what is now northern Iraq has been dated about 8700 B.C.
W Resources Plc (LON:WRES) engages in the exploration and development of tungsten, tin, copper, and gold properties. Their Monforte-Tinoca exploration licence covers 496.19km² and is highly prospective for copper, gold, tin and tungsten exploration and development.
