Kennecott Utah Copper Company began mining the low-grade copper ore in Bingham Canyon, the mine has become a huge open-pit that has produced more copper than any mine in the world, is one of the engineering marvels of the world, and is more than Â¾ of a mile deep and more than 2 Â¾ miles wide at the top. And it is still growing.
As the largest copper mine in the world, our desire to be the mining company of choice drives us to set and reach high environmental and safety standards that benefit our employees, our neighbors, and the community we call home.
