In Africa, we operate the Tenke Fungurume copper and cobalt mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Opened in 2009, our Tenke Fungurume complex includes state-of-the-art mining and processing facilities. The Tenke Fungurume minerals district is one of the most promising in Africa, with copper reserves totaling more than 8 billion pounds.

    We’ve just completed a second phase of investment and expect to produce more than 400 million pounds of copper annually. This expansion included mill upgrades, a new tank house and additional mining equipment. Working here, you’ll see up close the company’s social programs that address basic community needs and infrastructure—access to health care, education, economic development and more.
