At Its Highest Level in a Decade, Copper Is the “Green Metal” of the Future, With Its Majuba Hill Project, Bam Bam Resources (OTC:NPEZF) (CSE:BBR) (XFRA:4NPB) Could Be Perfectly Positioned For The Copper Boom
- Copper has surged to its highest level in a decade. Since March 23, 2020, copper has skyrocketed by almost 95%.
- Copper’s been a crucial metal in our daily lives since the beginning of time. But with sustainable development a priority nowadays, copper demand will surge.
- As global copper use continues to rise, more copper mining and supply will be desperately needed.
- Copper production growth is projected to remain in positive territory for the foreseeable future.
- Copper is seen as the “green metal” because of its properties and recyclability.
- The car plus the battery of every EV requires around 80 kg (176 lb) of copper.
- Bam Bam Resources (OTC:NPEZF) (CSE:BBR) (XFRA:4NPB), with its Majuba Hill mine, could be perfectly positioned to take advantage of the gold-copper market.
- Historic mines in and around Majuba have produced 2.8 million pounds of copper, 184,000 ounces of silver, 21,000 pounds of tin, 5,800 ounces of gold, as well as lead and zinc.
- The stock has skyrocketed by over 450% since September 1 and by nearly 48% year-to-date.
- “Prepare for a decade of Dr. Copper on steroids.” — Citibank
Why do people neglect to talk about copper while giving gold all the attention?
Sure there are tailwinds for gold. The dollar’s value is questionable at best, trillions more in stimulus dollars are about to be pumped into the economy, and inflation’s unwelcome return seems to be inevitable.
But with the world transitioning to a cleaner, more sustainable future and with the economy rip-roaring towards a recovery, copper could be the best play for precious metals. In fact, it could be a generationally strong play.
Copper hasn’t traded at this type of a level since 2011, and it could be just getting started. Citi, in fact, stated to “prepare for a decade of Dr. Copper on steroids.”
Since global markets bottomed on March 23rd, 2020, copper has skyrocketed by almost 95%. While gold got all the attention in 2020 for reaching a record high in August, look at how its returns pale in comparison to copper.
Now look year-to-date. The returns are almost polar opposites of each other.
Investors know best.
They understand that the outlook for the economy is improving. “Copper prices are widely seen as a barometer for confidence in the global economy owing to its broad array of end uses,” said Bank of America.
They understand the uses that copper has given us for thousands of years thanks to its ability to conduct electricity and heat.
They understand how vital copper is to our homes, our technological devices, and our everyday lives.
Most importantly, they know how vital copper is for a sustainable future. Copper is a “green metal” because of its ability to recycle and help with renewable energy.
Copper is also essential for electric vehicles (EVs). An EV plus its battery requires around 80 kg (176 lb) of copper. With more and more EVs projected to hit the road over the next 10-25 years, eventually replacing gasoline-powered vehicles, the supply must meet the demand.
“Due to geological availability, emerging technologies and industry innovation, copper will continue to contribute to society’s sustainable development goals. As global copper use continues to rise, meeting this demand will require additional copper mining,” said Copper Alliance.
With global copper demands projected to rise, more copper miners replenishing the supply will be desperately needed.
Bam Bam Resources has recognized that copper has a crucial role in the EV market and throughout the modern world in many evolving technologies. Copper is in very high demand and, as we can see with the current prices, has a bright and prosperous future.
With its Majuba Hill Mine in the heart of mineral-rich Nevada, Bam Bam Resources is at the right place, at the right time — to put it lightly.
More on Majuba
Majuba Hill is a porphyry copper project in Pershing County, Nevada. It is located in the Antelope Mining District, 56 miles southwest of Winnemucca, Nevada, and 156 miles northeast of Reno, Nevada.
Copper, tin, and silver mining started at Majuba in the early 1900s, with production into the 1950s. Historic mines in and around Majuba also produced 2.8 million pounds of copper, 184,000 ounces of silver, 21,000 pounds of tin, 5,800 ounces of gold, and lead and zinc.
Drilling, geologic mapping, rock/soil geochemistry, and geophysical data outline an area that contains up to 40 million tons of oxide copper grading at 0.43% Cu and 12 ppm Ag in outcropping near-surface oxide mineralization. Widespread supergene oxidation also extends up to 600 feet below the surface and has produced a variety of copper arsenate as well as chalcocite.
The project’s total potential is 350-500 million tons in sulfide/oxide mineralization at grades of 0.4% Cu, 12 ppm Ag, and 0.175 ppm Au.
The historic high-grade copper production at Majuba came from outcropping, oxidized copper porphyry mineralization. Supergene enrichment appears minimal and recent metallurgical characterization indicates that approximately 60% of the copper in the oxidized mineralization is contained in clinoclase.
The mine also has a newly constructed access road with exposed extensive Oxide Copper Zones up to 100 feet long.
Bam Bam’s Stock Has Surged- Especially Relative to Copper
One of the best ways to play a boom in a commodity is through the small companies mining or producing that commodity. The returns will be amplified and leveraged. That’s how it works for crude oil vs. oil producers, and that’s how it works for gold vs. gold miners.
It primarily works that way for copper and copper miners. Since Bam Bam Resources bottomed at the close on September 1, 2020, at $0.25 a share, just look how it’s performed since then compared to copper.
While copper in that period has gained a respectable 34.52%, Bam Bam has surged by an astronomical 456%.
The trend’s continued year-to-date as well. Copper’s value has increased by a healthy 14.62%. Bam Bam has soared by almost 48%.
This may be the only beginning too. Remember- as copper’s demand increases, so will the demand for miners like Bam Bam. Mining stocks like Bam Bam’s will significantly benefit from copper’s run.
Barchart also gave Bam Bam Resources a 100% BUY rating based on its technical indicators for the short-term and long-term like its 20-day moving average, 20-50 day MACD oscillator, 20-100 day MACD oscillator, 20-200 day MACD oscillator, 50-day moving average, 50-100 day MACD oscillator, 50-150 day MACD oscillator, 50-200 day MACD oscillator, 100-day moving average, 150-day moving average, 200-day moving average, and its 100-200 day MACD oscillator.
The Management Team Leading Bam Bam Resources (OTC:NPEZF) (CSE:BBR) (XFRA:4NPB) Has it Set for Success
It’s impossible not to feel confident in Bam Bam Resources’s potential when reading about its management team. Copper’s potential is undeniable, and the team leading this company appears primed to take advantage of it. This is a team of experts with decades of experience and success.

Key Takeaways for Investors
Anyone ignoring this copper rush is merely neglecting to accept reality. We are living in a new era; the copper era. With more and more people and governments waking up to the fact that we better start living a sustainable life- or else- we really have no choice but to use more copper. Besides dogs, copper has been man’s best friend for thousands of years. With more and more demand for copper expected to do nothing but surge, the miners supplying us will be of utmost importance. Remember this too. The mining stocks will always be leveraged in relation to the actual commodity. With Bam Bam Resources’s strong team and full access to resources, it’s relatively straightforward that its run since March, and year-to-date is only just beginning.
