3rd largest copper mine in the world as well as one of the largest gold mines. In Indonesia which is the biggest risk. Not sure how long the bull market can run, but prefers being in large caps for less risk.

A great way, in a large cap stock, to participate both in copper and in gold. As long as these metals act well, this company should participate because they have great reserves in the ground.

Has broken out of a multi year consolidation. Had some operational problems a couple of years ago that are getting resolved, so the earnings are getting much better. A pure play on copper and gold.

A great play on copper and gold. Have an enormous resource. Pays 2.2%. There's often a tie between energy and the metal stocks. Metals have lagged the energy to date, but have really started to put on some strength in the last little while.

Had some difficulties last year with a major mine and have now come through that. Has traded sideways and looks like it is launching into another move. Has had a pickup in earnings/revenues. Will be paying a special dividend at the end of March. Has a nice yield.

Feels gold will go higher. Also a copper play and the demand for copper is greater than the supply.

Had been stopped out but have gotten back in. The company looks quite strong. Their strength is in copper and gold. The second leg of the base metals bull market may be getting underway.
