Freeport-McMoRan's Red Conger Named to American Mining Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame, sponsored by the Mining Foundation of the Southwest since 1983, celebrates individuals - past and present- for outstanding contributions to the mining industry. Each year, a living honoree and several inductees from mining history are selected by the foundation's Hall of Fame Committee and Board of Governors.


Freeport-McMoRan partners with Western New Mexico University. Western New Mexico University is working with Freeport-McMoRan on a mission to prepare welders for work in Grant County’s Chino and Tyrone mines.


Freeport-McMoRan receives one international and two state-based awards related to the conservation of wildlife and the environment from the Wildlife Habitat Council. WHC recognizes excellence in corporate conservation with awards honoring programs and projects in wildlife habitat enhancement and restoration, and conservation education.


Freeport-McMoRan's Morenci Operations may mine the red metal, but their commitment to thinking green is what recently earned the site a Voluntary Environmental Stewardship Program award from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. Morenci received a platinum status award - the highest of four levels - for its effective recycling of high-density polyethylene, also known as HDPE.
