South America

These operations include open-pit mining, sulfide ore concentrating, leaching and solution extraction/electrowinning. Production from our South America mines is sold as concentrate or cathode under long-term contracts. Our South America mines also ship a portion of their copper concentrate to Atlantic Copper, our wholly owned smelting and refining unit in Spain. In addition to copper, the Cerro Verde mine produces molybdenum concentrates and silver.
