The base metals prices on the London Metal Exchange (LME) closed higher on Monday.
Copper price rose because of the supply shortage.
Chile-owned copper giant Codelco said striking workers damaged its Salvador mine, and talks to end a nearly three-week strike came to a halt.
Besides, reports said heavy rains in northern Chile forced some mines to stop operations.
