The Oyu Tolgoi copper mine is located in the Khanbogd province, where the Mongolian government has declared a state of emergency due to the coronavirus. Rio Tinto has advised that Mongolia’s efforts to contain the virus’s spread will result in shipments of copper concentrate being delayed. The mine’s output is usually shipped across the border to China via trucks. BHP also recently advised that its copper shipments to China may be delayed, while OZ Mineral has indicated that it has not yet been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.
