We are the second largest producer of copper in Australia and a key asset in Glencore's global mining portfolio.
Copper is mined at both our Enterprise and X41 underground copper mines in Mount Isa, which comprise the largest network of underground mine development in the world. Our operation encompasses our underground mines, as well as a copper concentrator, copper smelter and supporting services.
About 20 per cent of our copper cathode production is placed into the domestic market. The remaining cathode and other material, including copper concentrates and tankhouse slimes, are exported to markets in China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore Taiwan, Thailand, India, Germany and Canada.
We currently process around 6 million tonnes of ore every year, and provide employment for more than 2,000 employees and contractors.
