Tenke Fungurume Kisanfu Project Copper and Cobalt Resources
Kisanfu Project and Tenke Fungurume Tenke Fungurume Kisanfu Project

Our Africa mining operations consist of the Tenke Fungurume copper and cobalt minerals district in the Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). FCX continues to engage in exploration analyses and metallurgical testing to evaluate the potential of the highly prospective Tenke Fungurume minerals district.

Tenke Fungurume Mining S.A. (TFM) operates the Tenke Fungurume mine and is entitled to mine in the DRC under an Amended and Restated Mining Convention with the DRC government. TFM completed its second phase expansion project in early 2013, which included increasing mine, mill and processing capacity. Construction of a second sulphuric acid plant is under way, with completion expected in 2016. FCX continues to engage in exploration activities and metallurgical testing to evaluate the potential of the highly prospective Tenke Fungurume minerals district. These analyses are being incorporated into future plans for potential expansions of production capacity..
