Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX), incorporated on November 10, 1987, is a natural resource company with a portfolio of mineral assets, and oil and natural gas resources. The Company's segments include the Morenci, Cerro Verde, Grasberg and Tenke Fungurume copper mines, the Rod & Refining operations and the U.S. Oil & Gas Operations. FCX has organized its operations into five primary divisions: North America copper mines, South America mining, Indonesia mining, Africa mining and Molybdenum mines. The Company's portfolio of assets includes the Grasberg minerals district in Indonesia, mining operations in North and South America, the Tenke Fungurume (Tenke) minerals district in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in Africa, and oil and natural gas assets in the United States.

The Company's Atlantic Copper unit in Spain smelts and refines copper concentrates, and markets refined copper and precious metals in slimes. The Company has a smelter at its Miami, Arizona, mining operation; a cobalt chemical refinery in Kokkola, Finland; molybdenum conversion facilities in the United States and Europe; over four non-operating copper mines in North America (Ajo, Bisbee and Tohono in Arizona and Cobre in New Mexico), and other mining support entities.

The North America copper mines include open-pit mining, sulfide ore concentrating, leaching and solution extraction/electrowinning (SX/EW) operations. The copper produced at the North America copper mines is cast into copper rods by its Rod & Refining operations. In addition to copper, the Company's North America copper mines also produce molybdenum concentrates and silver. The Morenci open-pit mine, located in southeastern Arizona, produces copper cathodes and copper concentrate. In addition to copper, the Morenci mine also produces molybdenum concentrate.
