without copper and at the moment this is one of the fundamentally sound projects (lower cost than most) and there is no doubt Teck will participate but Teck would do itself and its shareholders a HUGE favour by not only participate but rather buyout the project and the company right out as the copper prices are low.....many copper projects have had to close down or abandon all together their activities and thus as the economy improves, there will be a huge shortfall in available copper which will drive the price staggeringly high....anyone that disagrees then they should show us a better project currently available.....this is all my own opinion and i urge you all to do your own due diligence as i have been wrong on many occasions
