By May 4, 2017Commodities

Copper output in Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa’s top producer, hit 274,316 tonnes in the first quarter of 2017, a 25 percent increase over the 219,009 tonnes produced in the same period last year, the central bank said on Wednesday.

The output represents a rebound after production in the first quarter last year dipped 20 percent due to low global prices.
