Freeport-McMoRan Inc, formerly Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, was incorporated under the laws of the state of Delaware on November 10, 1987. The Company deals in the mining of copper, gold and molybdenum. Its portfolio of assets includes the Grasberg minerals district in Indonesia, significant mining operations in North and South America, and the Tenke Fungurume minerals district in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The Grasberg minerals district contains the single recoverable copper reserve and the single gold reserve of any mine in the world based on the latest available reserve data provided by third-party industry consultants. The Company has organized its operations into six primary divisions - North America copper mines, South America mining, Indonesia mining, Africa mining, Molybdenum mines and United States (U.S.) oil and gas operations. It has has seven operating copper mines in North America - Morenci, Bagdad, Safford, Sierrita and Miami in Arizona, and Tyrone and Chino in New Mexico. The North America copper mines include open-pit mining, sulfide ore concentrating, leaching and SX/EW operations. A majority of the copper produced at the North America copper mines is cast into copper rod by the Company's Rod & Refining operations. The North America copper mines include the Morenci copper mine as a reportable segment. In addition to copper, certain of its North America copper mines also produce molybdenum concentrates. South America mining includes four operating copper mines - Cerro Verde in Peru, and El Abra, Candelaria and Ojos del Salado in Chile. These operations include open-pit and underground mining, sulfide ore concentrating, leaching and SX/EW operations. South America mining includes the Cerro Verde and Candelaria copper mines as reportable segments. Indonesia mining includes PT-FI's Grasberg minerals district that produces copper concentrates, which contain significant quantities of gold and silver. Africa mining includes the Tenke minerals district. The Tenke operation includes surface mining, leaching and SX/EW operations and produces copper cathodes. In addition to copper, the Tenke operation produces cobalt hydroxide. Molybdenum mines include the wholly owned Henderson underground mine and Climax open-pit mine in Colorado. The Henderson and Climax mines produce high-purity, chemical-grade molybdenum concentrates, which are typically further processed into value-added molybdenum chemical products. The Rod & Refining segment consists of copper conversion facilities located in North America, and includes a refinery, three rod mills and a specialty copper products facility. These operations process copper produced at the Company's North America copper mines and purchased copper into copper cathode, rod and custom copper shapes.
