Looks like they have it worse in Cape Town. Copper is the citys second largest export to china (for scrap) even though the city has no copper mines at all.

I was just thinking today after hearing a report about Detroit's stolen copper export industry- is Detroit the New Copper Country of Michigan? Detroit must export more copper than the U.P. now, any figures? If only the scenery was as nice as the Keweenaw I'd probably move into the city!!!
