Toronto-based Lundin Mining, a diversified base metals mining company has boosted its copper reserves and resources at its Nerves-Corvo mine in Portugal as per its six monthly update. The Toronto based mining company reported its resource and reserve estimates on June 30 for its European and African mines.

While copper measured and indicated mineral resources was up by 5.8 million tonnes to 41 million tonnes at 2/2% copper.

On the other hand, zinc proven and probable at the Neves – Corvo were down from from 54.2 million tons to 42.6 million tons as the definition of mineral reserves was re-interpreted.
