Capstone Copper has a portfolio of long-life copper operations in the Americas and a fully permitted development project in one of the world’s most prolific copper-producing districts. We are well positioned to create near-term growth as we make our operating mines more profitable, and execute on our strategy of transformational growth as we build the next generation of responsible copper mines.
Through a commitment to innovation, excellence and operating at the highest standards, we are focused on generating strong cash flows in all price environments at our multi-asset portfolio of mines and projects.
