During the fourth quarter of 2012, average copper prices increased 2 percent from its third quarter average, underpinned by the support offered by positive indicators from the central banks in the US, Europe and Japan. This price appreciation of copper has also partly been driven by increased demand coming from China, US and South Korea which have been the main demand centres during 2012.
