Our Industry Standing

The top 10 producers of copper comprise approximately half of total worldwide mined copper production. We currently rank first among those producers, with approximately nine percent of total worldwide estimated mined copper production. Our competitive position is based on the size, quality and grade of our ore bodies and our ability to manage costs compared with other producers. We have a diverse portfolio of mining operations with varying ore grades and cost structures. Our costs are driven by the location, grade and nature of our ore bodies and the level of input costs, including energy, labor and equipment.
