As the world continues to build up its renewable energy infrastructure, copper is becoming an increasingly important commodity. Copper is widely used in the construction of solar panels, wind turbines and other forms of renewable energy infrastructure. As the demand for renewable energy continues to grow, so too does the demand for copper – driving up the price of copper stocks on the TSX. With that in mind, here are the top 5 copper stocks on the TSX in 2023. First up is Lundin Mining Corporation. This Canadian-headquartered mining company is one of the biggest producers of copper in the world. Their Cuajone mine in Peru is one of the top producing copper mines in South America and is expected to drive growth for Lundin in 2023. They also own stakes in the Tenke Fungurume copper mine in the DRC which is expected to reopen in 2023. Second on the list is Teck Resources Limited. Teck Resources is the largest diversified natural resource company in Canada and produces more copper than any other company in the country. In 2023, it is expected to remain the world’s top copper producer, with its mines in Chile, Peru and Canada all expected to drive growth. Teck Resources is also expected to continue to expand its mining portfolio by acquiring more projects over the course of 2023. Third is First Quantum Minerals. This Toronto-based company is one of the biggest copper producers in the world and owns the world’s second-largest copper mine in Zambia.

The fourth copper stock on the TSX in 2023 is Hudbay Minerals. This Canadian-based company is one of the largest producers of copper in the country. While it currently operates in Canada, Mexico, Peru and the US, it is also planning to expand its portfolio by acquiring the Constancia copper mine in Peru in 2023. Finally, we have Imperial Metals Corporation. Imperial Metals operates three mines in Canada, producing mainly base metals such as copper, zinc, indium and lead. In 2023, it is expected to commission a new copper mine in British Columbia which is expected to increase its copper production in the coming years. In conclusion, the copper stocks on the TSX in 2023 offer a wide range of growth opportunities for investors interested in metals.
