A drill machine is seen inside a cave at the Andina copper mine, 80 km (49 miles) north east of Santiago and 11,482 feet (3,500m) above sea level March 25, 2009. Chinese demand, the impact of fiscal stimulus in leading economies and the availability of scrap metal will dominate the agenda at the annual CRU/CESCO conference in Chile as executives try to decipher the uncertain future of the red metal.
