DESCRIPTION:

Freeport-McMoRan’s Morenci copper mining operations were recently honored by the Arizona Mining Association with the 2018 Sustainability, Preservation and Diversity in Environment award in recognition of environmental excellence.

The award recognized the Morenci operations for its role in protecting and monitoring some 1.5 million bats roosting in two areas – a nearby cave and a historic mine opening – as well as for conservation education outreach in the community.
