July 18 (Bloomberg) -- Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. shareholders voted against approving the compensation of executives at the world’s largest publicly traded copper producer.

There were 172 million votes cast at Freeport’s July 16 annual shareholders meeting to approve the compensation and 413 million votes were against, the Phoenix-based company said today in a filing.

An investor proposal requiring Freeport’s chairman to be an independent director was approved, as was a proposal allowing holders of 15 percent of Freeport shares to call a special investor meeting.
