Copper production in Democratic Republic of Congo dropped for the first time in six years in 2015 and this year could be another tough one as low commodity prices bite, the Central African country’s chamber of mines said on Wednesday. Output dropped 3.3% in Africa’s top copper producer to 995 805 t from 1.03 million t in 2014, the first time production fell since the global economic downturn in 2009.
