Copper has the highest electrical conductivity of all non-precious metals. Its properties make it the conductor of choice for wires, cables and electrical equipment, which represent about two thirds of copper use.
Copper also conducts heat much better than other metals, which is highly important for heat exchangers and heat sinks in electronic components. In terms of conductivity, only silver performs better, and the copper industry is developing innovative higher-conductivity materials to change that.
Georgian Mining Corp (LON:GEO) is an AIM listed copper & gold development and exploration company that operates mainly in Georgia on the prolific Tethyan Belt.
