Copper concentrates produced by mines are sold to smelters and refiners who treat the ore and refine the copper and charge for this service via treatment charges (TCs) and refining charges (RCs). The TCs are charged in US$ per tonne of concentrate treated and RCs are charged in cents per pound treated, denominated in US dollars, with benchmark prices set annually by major Japanese smelters. The customer in this case can be a smelter, who on-sells blister copper ingots to a refiner, or a smelter-refin

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.
The run-of-mine is processed by means of standard primary crushing and conveying, SAG milling (a semi-autogenous mill that uses a large rotating drum filled with ore, water and steel grinding balls to transform the ore into a fine slurry), ball milling copper concentrate flotation, tailings disposal, concentrate thickening, filtration and load out.
Following the commissioning of the Escondida Water Supply project and ramp-up of the Los Colorados Concentrator in the September 2017 quarter, Escondida´s two open-cut mines feed three concentrator plants (which use grinding and flotation technologies to produce copper concentrate), as well as two leaching operations (oxide and sulphide).
Capricorn Copper is an existing, fully permitted operation, with a significant high-grade resource base. The mine commenced operations in 2017, on time and on budget, and is expected to produce approximately 30ktpa of copper in concentrate over an initial Mine Life of 10 years.
Our Horne Smelter is a custom copper smelter, processing concentrate from the operations of Glencore and third parties. In operation since 1927, it is now the only copper smelter in Canada and plays an important role for the Canadian copper mining industry. Horne Smelter is one of the few plants in the world that also responsibly recycles end-of-life electronics and other copper bearing materials.
