Palm Beach, FL – June 29, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Copper is one of the oldest metals ever used and has been one of the important materials in the development of civilization. Because of its properties, singularly or in combination, of high ductility, malleability, and thermal and electrical conductivity, and its resistance to corrosion, copper has become a major industrial metal, ranking third after iron and aluminum in terms of quantities consumed. The copper ore mining market consists of sales of copper ores and concentrates by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that mine copper ores. The industry includes establishments carrying out activities such as developing mine sites and preparing copper ores and recovering copper concentrates through precipitation, leaching and elector wining copper ores. A report from Market Reports World projected that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the global Copper market size is estimated to be worth USD 255160 million in 2022 and is forecast to a readjusted size of USD 343900 million by 2028 with a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period 2022-2028. It said that: “The market for copper mining is anticipated to increase at a considerable rate owing to increasing investments in construction projects which is a major consumer of copper industry.” Another report from The Business Research Company added: “The growth in the copper mining market is due to increase in construction projects in rapidly developing countries such as China and India owing to rise in population and infrastructure.” Active Companies in the markets today include Rockridge Resources Ltd. (OTCQB: RRRLF) (TSX-V: ROCK), Teck Resources Limited (NYSE: TECK) (TSX: TECK.A), Hudbay Minerals Inc. (NYSE: HBM) (TSX: HBM), Foran Mining Corporation (OTCQX: FMCXF) (TSXV: FOM), Copper Mountain Mining Corporation (OTCPK: CPPMF) (TSX: CMMC)
The Business Research Company continued: “The global copper mining market is further segmented based on type and geography. By Type – The copper mining market is segmented into refining industry, metal processing industry, chemical industry, others. By Geography – The global copper mining is segmented into North America, South America, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Middle East and Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific copper mining market accounts the largest share in the global copper mining market. Autonomous drilling systems are being implemented by the copper mining industries to enhance safety, efficiency and productivity. This technology is being used to accurately identify drill location and drill production blast holes more effectively using advanced levelling technologies. Potential Opportunities In The Copper Mining Market With increase in building and construction projects the scope and potential for the global copper mining market is expected to significantly rise in the coming years.”
Rockridge Resources Ltd. (OTCQB: RRRLF) (TSX-V: ROCK) BREAKING NEWS: Rockridge Completes 3D Geophysics Modeling which Identifies 15 km Strike Length of Electromagnetic Conductors; Prepares for Fully-Funded Upcoming Drill Program at Knife Lake High-Grade Copper Project, Saskatchewan – Rockridge Resources Ltd. (Frankfurt: RR0) (“Rockridge” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has completed its 3D Geophysical Plate Modelling of the recently acquired VTEM data which will be used to further refine targeting for Rockridge’s upcoming drill program starting in mid-July 2022 at its Knife Lake High-Grade Copper VMS Project located in Saskatchewan, Canada (the “Knife Lake Project” or “Property”). Rockridge is fully funded and permitted for this drill program.
The Company is pleased to announce that the VTEM survey data displays up to 15 km strike length of highly conductive near-surface anomalies hosted in prospective stratigraphy in regional target areas. The regional target areas, which includes the Gilbert Lake Targets, were previously identified through geological mapping, surface sampling and geochemical analyses as stratigraphy with high potential to host valuable copper occurrences and other sulphide mineral occurrences. This stratigraphy is interpreted to be the same horizon that hosts the Knife Lake Deposit.

Rockridge’s CEO, Jonathan Wiesblatt, commented: “We are very excited for the upcoming drilling at our flagship asset and look forward to potentially making a new discovery and advancing the project. The 3D modeling of the five plates has confirmed our strategy that the Gilbert Lake Target will be the primary focus on this upcoming drill program in mid-July 2022. The project remains an exciting exploration story that can offer investors exposure to a top mining jurisdiction and to commodities in high demand such as copper, cobalt and zinc. We look forward to updating our shareholders in the coming weeks.”
Updates for Upcoming Diamond Drilling Program: The focus of the 2022 drill program will be on the highly prospective Gilbert Lake target area. The Gilbert Lake targets were identified from the results and interpretation of the 2021 geophysical, drill and field programs. Results from these programs show that airborne VTEM surveys can successfully identify zones of VMS-style mineralization hosted in favourable stratigraphy on the property. Additionally, the Company has now finalized the 3D modeling of the VTEM data focusing on the highest-priority drill targets for the upcoming program. Rockridge has signed all major contracts including the drill contractor, camp construction, and helicopter rental. The drill program is scheduled to commence in mid-July 2022. The Company has also received its Exploration Permit which expires in February 2024 and hence can conduct drilling, geophysical works and prospecting.
