Copper Cathode: The company produces copper cathode at its electrolytic refinery located in El Paso, Texas, and at 10 of its mines. In North America, SX/EW cathode is produced from its Morenci, Bagdad, Safford, Sierrita, Miami, Chino and Tyrone mines; in South America from its Cerro Verde and El Abra mines; and from the Tenke minerals district in Africa. Continuous Cast Copper Rod: The company manufactures continuous cast copper rod at its facilities in El Paso, Texas; Norwich, Connecticut; and Miami, Arizona, primarily using copper cathode produced at its North America copper mines.
