Because we are much more than copper, we lead a business of excellence with passion in order to build a better society.
We operate one of the world’s largest copper deposits with an approach based on risk management and safety in order to develop a world-class mining operation.
We strive constantly to maintain constructive relations of permanent collaboration with our employees, providing opportunities for meeting and communication and fostering dialogue and mutual respect.
Sustainability is the Company’s central pillar and the framework which guides the way it does business and applies at all levels of the organisation, including people, projects, operations, installations and products
