Collahuasi is a company that mines and produces copper concentrate and cathodes and molybdenum concentrate. As of December 2015, it was the world’s third largest copper operation and has one of its largest deposits of copper mineral resources (9,964 million tonnes). The Company’s industrial installations and the Rosario, Ujina and Huinquintipa deposits, located in the Pica municipal district of Chile’s Tarapacá Region, form its so-called Cordillera Area. From the Ujina sector, where the concentrator plant is also located, a 203-kilometre system of slurry pipelines transports copper concentrate down to the Collahuasi Port Terminal in Punta Patache, 65 kilometres south of the city of Iquique, from where products are shipped to international markets. The molybdenum and concentrate filtering plants are also located here. Collahuasi’s shareholders are Anglo American plc (44%), Glencore (44%) and Japan Collahuasi Resources B.V. (12%), all of whom are represented on its Board of Directors. In 2015, Collahuasi had a total workforce of 6,496 people of whom 35% were direct employees and 65% were outsourced. Out of the Company’s own employees, 44.9% were from the Tarapacá Region. In 2015, Collahuasi produced 455,320 tonnes of fine copper and its total sales reached US$2,690 million.
