Market Conditions
The London Metal Exchange (LME) copper settlement price averaged $4.43 per pound in the first six months of 2022 and reached a high of $4.87 per pound in March 2022, supported by copper's increasingly important role in decarbonization technologies and limited mine supply. Many analysts projected a multi-year period of rising prices associated with secular growth in metals demand required for clean energy technologies. Beginning in second-quarter 2022, a series of macro-economic factors (concerns about the global economy, higher United States (U.S.) interest rates and currency exchange rates) led to a precipitous decline in copper prices. The LME copper settlement price declined from approximately $4.70 per pound at the start of second-quarter 2022 to $3.74 per pound at June 30, 2022, and settled at $3.34 per pound on July 20, 2022.
Physical market fundamentals remain tight as evidenced by low levels of global exchange stocks. FCX's global customer base reports healthy demand for copper. The outlook for copper fundamentals in the medium- and long-term remain extraordinarily favorable, with demand for copper expected to double over the next 10 to 15 years. Substantial new mine supply development will be required to meet the goals of the global energy transition, and current prices for copper are insufficient to support new mine supply development, which is expected to add to future supply deficits.
The FCX management team and global organization have substantial experience and success in executing under volatile market conditions. FCX benefits from a diversified portfolio of operations with an attractive cost structure, long-lived reserves, optionality in its project pipeline and a strong balance sheet and liquidity position.
FCX closely monitors market conditions and will adjust its operating plans if required. FCX will maintain a strong balance sheet and liquidity position as it focuses on building long-term value in its business, executing its operating plans safely, responsibly and efficiently, and prudently manage costs and capital expenditures. FCX will opportunistically use excess cash to repurchase its debt and equity securities. Refer to FCX's Financial Policy beginning on page 10.
FCX is realistic about near-term uncertain market conditions. FCX is steadfast in its optimism about its portfolio of assets, its strong management and operating team, and the long-term prospects for the copper markets it serves.

Responsible Production
2021 Annual Report on Sustainability. In April 2022, FCX published its 2021 Annual Report on Sustainability, available on FCX's website at fcx.com/sustainability. FCX has a long history of environmental, social and governance (ESG) programs and is focused on leading as a responsible copper producer.
The Copper Mark. FCX is committed to validating all of its copper producing sites with the Copper Mark, a comprehensive assurance framework designed to demonstrate the copper industry's responsible production practices. To achieve the Copper Mark, each site is required to complete an external assurance process to assess conformance with 32 ESG requirements. During second-quarter 2022, FCX's Safford and Sierrita sites were awarded the Copper Mark. To date, FCX has achieved the Copper Mark at all 11 of its eligible copper producing sites in North America, South America and Europe; and PT-FI has signed a letter of commitment and initiated the validation process.
Consolidated Sales Volumes
Second-quarter 2022 copper sales of 1.1 billion pounds were 5 percent higher than the April 2022 estimate of 1.0 billion pounds of copper, primarily reflecting timing of shipments and strong operating performance. Second-quarter 2022 copper sales were 17 percent higher than second-quarter 2021 sales of 929 million pounds of copper, primarily reflecting increased operating rates at the Grasberg minerals district and Cerro Verde.
Second-quarter 2022 gold sales of 476 thousand ounces were 18 percent higher than the April 2022 estimate of 405 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting higher recoveries and milling rates. Second-quarter 2022 gold sales were 56 percent higher than second-quarter 2021 sales of 305 thousand ounces, primarily reflecting increased operating rates at the Grasberg minerals district.
Second-quarter 2022 molybdenum sales of 20 million pounds were lower than the April 2022 estimate of 21 million pounds and second-quarter 2021 sales of 22 million pounds, primarily reflecting timing of shipments.
Consolidated sales volumes for the year 2022 are expected to approximate 4.2 billion pounds of copper, 1.7 million ounces of gold and 80 million pounds of molybdenum, including 1.0 billion pounds of copper, 400 thousand ounces of gold and 21 million pounds of molybdenum in third-quarter 2022. Projected sales volumes are dependent on operational performance, weather-related conditions, timing of shipments and other factors detailed in the Cautionary Statement below.
Consolidated Unit Net Cash Costs
Consolidated average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for FCX's copper mines of $1.41 per pound of copper in second-quarter 2022 were in line with the April 2022 estimate, with the impact of higher sales volumes and by-product credits being offset by higher energy and other input costs; and five percent below the second-quarter 2021 average of $1.48 per pound, primarily reflecting higher sales volumes and by-product credits, partly offset by higher mining, energy and other input costs. Second-quarter 2021 unit net cash costs also included nonrecurring labor-related charges at Cerro Verde ($0.07 per pound).
Assuming average prices of $1,700 per ounce of gold and $16.00 per pound of molybdenum for the second half of 2022 and achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates, consolidated unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for FCX's copper mines are expected to average $1.50 per pound of copper for the year 2022. The impact of price changes during the second half of 2022 on consolidated unit net cash costs for the year 2022 would approximate $0.02 per pound of copper for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold and $0.01 per pound of copper for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum. Quarterly unit net cash costs vary with fluctuations in sales volumes and realized prices, primarily for gold and molybdenum.

MINING OPERATIONS
North America Copper Mines. FCX operates seven open-pit copper mines in North America - Morenci, Bagdad, Safford (including Lone Star), Sierrita and Miami in Arizona, and Chino and Tyrone in New Mexico. In addition to copper, certain of these mines produce molybdenum concentrate, gold and silver. All of the North America mining operations are wholly owned, except for Morenci. FCX records its 72 percent undivided joint venture interest in Morenci using the proportionate consolidation method.

Operating and Development Activities. FCX has substantial reserves and future opportunities in the U.S., primarily associated with existing mining operations.
FCX continues to pursue technologies to recover additional copper from its large existing leach stockpiles. FCX has several initiatives ongoing across its North America and South America footprint incorporating new applications, technologies and data analytics. Initial results support the potential for incremental low-cost and low-carbon additions to FCX's production and reserve profile.
Lone Star is increasing its operating rates to achieve production of 300 million pounds of copper per year from oxide ores (compared with the initial design capacity of 200 million pounds per year). The oxide project at Lone Star advances the opportunity for development of the underlying, large-scale sulfide resources. FCX is also increasing exploration in the area to support metallurgical testing and mine development planning for a potential significant long-term investment to build additional scale on an economically attractive basis.
FCX is planning an expansion to double the concentrator capacity of the Bagdad operation in northwest Arizona. FCX is engaging stakeholders and has commenced a feasibility study, which is expected to be completed in 2023, for this project.

South America Mining. FCX operates two copper mines in South America - Cerro Verde in Peru (in which FCX owns a 53.56 percent interest) and El Abra in Chile (in which FCX owns a 51 percent interest). These operations are consolidated in FCX's financial statements. In addition to copper, the Cerro Verde mine produces molybdenum concentrate and silver.    
Operating and Development Activities. During second-quarter 2022, milling rates at Cerro Verde's concentrator facilities set a quarterly record averaging 427,100 metric tons of ore per day. Subject to ongoing monitoring of COVID-19 protocols, milling rates at Cerro Verde are currently expected to average over 400,000 metric tons of ore per day for the second half of 2022.
Operating rates at El Abra have returned to pre-COVID-19 levels and increased mining and stacking activities are expected to result in an approximate 30 percent increase in El Abra copper production for the year 2022, compared with the year 2021.
El Abra's large sulfide resource supports a potential major mill project similar to the large-scale concentrator constructed at Cerro Verde in 2015. Technical and economic studies continue to be evaluated to determine the optimal scope and timing for the sulfide project. FCX is considering options to invest in water infrastructure to provide options to extend existing operations, while continuing to monitor potential changes in Chile's regulatory and fiscal matters. FCX will defer major investment decisions pending clarity on Chile's regulatory and fiscal matters.

$2.31 per pound of copper for the year 2022, based on current sales volume and cost estimates and assuming an average price of $16.00 per pound of molybdenum for the second half of 2022.

Indonesia Mining. PT-FI operates one of the world’s largest copper and gold mines at the Grasberg minerals district in Papua, Indonesia. PT-FI produces copper concentrate that contains significant quantities of gold and silver. FCX has a 48.76 percent ownership interest in PT-FI and manages its mining operations. Under the terms of the 2018 shareholders agreement, FCX’s economic interest in PT-FI approximates 81 percent through 2022, and 48.76 percent thereafter. PT-FI's results are consolidated in FCX's financial statements.
Operating and Development Activities. PT-FI currently has three underground operating mines in the Grasberg minerals district: Grasberg Block Cave, DMLZ and Big Gossan. In late 2021, PT-FI achieved quarterly copper and gold volumes approximating 100 percent of projected annualized levels of approximately 1.6 billion pounds of copper and 1.6 million ounces of gold.
PT-FI's milling rates for ore produced from its underground mines averaged 197,000 metric tons of ore per day in second-quarter 2022, and PT-FI expects milling rates to average approximately 190,000 metric tons of ore per day for the second half of 2022. The installation of additional milling facilities at PT-FI is currently expected to be completed in 2023, which would increase milling capacity to approximately 240,000 metric tons of ore per day and provide for continued annualized copper and gold production volumes of approximately 1.6 billion pounds of copper and 1.6 million ounces of gold. PT-FI is also advancing a mill recovery project with the installation of a new copper cleaner circuit that is expected to be completed in the first half of 2024, and is expected to provide incremental metal production of approximately 60 million pounds of copper and 40 thousand ounces of gold per year.
For the year 2022, PT-FI's estimated capital spending on the Grasberg Block Cave and DMLZ underground projects, including construction of a dual-fuel power plant, is expected to approximate $1.0 billion, net of scheduled contributions from PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Persero) (PT Inalum, also known as MIND ID). In accordance with applicable accounting guidance, the aggregate costs (before scheduled contributions from PT Inalum), expected to approximate $1.2 billion for the year 2022, will be reflected as an investing activity in FCX's cash flow statement and contributions from PT Inalum will be reflected as a financing activity.
Kucing Liar. PT-FI commenced long-term mine development activities for its Kucing Liar deposit during 2021, which is expected to produce over 6 billion pounds of copper and 5 million ounces of gold over the life of the project. Pre-production development activities will occur over an approximate 10-year timeframe, and capital investments are expected to average approximately $400 million per year over the next 10 years. At full operating rates, annual production from Kucing Liar is expected to approximate 600 million pounds of copper and 500 thousand ounces of gold, providing PT-FI with sustained long-term, large-scale and low-cost production. Kucing Liar will benefit from substantial shared infrastructure and PT-FI's experience and long-term success in block-cave mining.
Indonesia Smelter. In connection with PT-FI’s 2018 agreement with the Indonesia government to secure the extension of its long-term mining rights, PT-FI committed to construct additional domestic smelting capacity totaling 2 million metric tons of concentrate per year by the end of 2023 (subject to force majeure provisions).
PT-FI is actively engaged in the following projects for additional domestic smelting capacity:
Construction of a greenfield smelter in Gresik, Indonesia with a capacity to process approximately 1.7 million metric tons of copper concentrate per year. In July 2021, PT-FI awarded a construction contract to a third-party contractor with an estimated cost of $2.8 billion. The smelter construction, currently approximately 30 percent complete, is expected to be completed as soon as feasible in 2024.
Expansion of PT Smelting's capacity by 30 percent to 1.3 million metric tons of concentrate per year, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. PT-FI completed agreements in November 2021 with the majority owner of PT Smelting to implement the expansion plans. PT-FI is funding the cost of the expansion, estimated to approximate $250 million, with a loan that will convert to equity, increasing ownership in PT Smelting from a 39.5 percent ownership interest to a majority ownership interest once the expansion is complete.
Construction of a precious metals refinery (PMR) to process gold and silver from the greenfield smelter and PT Smelting at an estimated cost of $400 million.
During second-quarter 2022, capital expenditures for the greenfield smelter and PMR (collectively, the Indonesia smelter projects) totaled $0.2 billion, and are expected to approximate $1.4 billion for the year 2022.
foremost_inxcopperx2022xnra.jpg

page2header2022a.jpg
Capital expenditures for the Indonesia smelter projects are being funded with PT-FI's senior notes and its available revolving credit facility.
Construction of the additional domestic smelter capacity will result in the elimination of export duties, providing an offset to the economic cost associated with the Indonesia smelter projects. Based on current development progress of additional smelting capacity, PT-FI expects export duties to be reduced from the current rate of 5 percent to 2.5 percent by the end of 2022, and eliminated in the second half of 2023.

PT-FI's consolidated sales of 410 million pounds of copper and 474 thousand ounces of gold in second-quarter 2022 were higher than second-quarter 2021 consolidated sales of 310 million pounds of copper and 302 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting increased operating rates at the Grasberg minerals district. Consolidated sales volumes from PT-FI are expected to approximate 1.5 billion pounds of copper and 1.7 million ounces of gold for the year 2022.
PT-FI's unit net cash credits (including gold and silver credits) of $0.02 per pound of copper in second-quarter 2022 were significantly lower than unit net cash costs of $0.25 per pound in second-quarter 2021, primarily reflecting higher sales volumes, partly offset by higher operating rates, energy and other input costs.
Assuming an average gold price $1,700 per ounce for the second half of 2022 and achievement of current sales volumes and cost estimates, unit net cash costs (net of gold and silver credits) for PT-FI are expected to approximate $0.18 per pound of copper for the year 2022. PT-FI's average unit net cash costs for the year 2022 would change by approximately $0.07 per pound of copper for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold for the second half of 2022.

Molybdenum Mines. FCX operates two wholly owned molybdenum mines in Colorado - the Climax open-pit mine and the Henderson underground mine. The Climax and Henderson mines produce high-purity molybdenum concentrate, which is typically further processed into value-added molybdenum chemical products. The majority of the molybdenum concentrate produced at the Climax and Henderson mines and at FCX's North America and South America copper mines is processed at FCX's conversion facilities.

page2header2022a.jpg
Operating and Development Activities. Production from the molybdenum mines totaled 8 million pounds of molybdenum in second-quarter 2022 and 7 million pounds of molybdenum in second-quarter 2021. FCX's consolidated molybdenum sales and average realized prices include sales of molybdenum produced at the Molybdenum mines and at FCX's North America and South America copper mines, which are presented on page 3.
Average unit net cash costs for the Molybdenum mines of $10.62 per pound of molybdenum in second-quarter 2022 were higher than average unit net cash costs of $8.14 per pound in second-quarter 2021, primarily reflecting higher energy, outside service costs and other input costs and increased development costs at the Henderson mine. Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, average unit net cash costs for the Molybdenum mines are expected to approximate $11.75 per pound of molybdenum for the year 2022.
For a reconciliation of unit net cash costs per pound to production and delivery costs applicable to sales reported in FCX's consolidated financial statements, refer to the supplemental schedules, "Product Revenues and Production Costs," beginning on page XIII.

EXPLORATION
FCX's mining exploration activities are primarily associated with its existing mines, focusing on opportunities to expand reserves and resources to support development of additional future production capacity. Exploration results continue to indicate opportunities for significant future potential reserve additions at our existing properties in North America and South America. Exploration expenditures for the year 2022, primarily to advance Lone Star and other opportunities at FCX's North America copper mines, are expected to approximate $120 million, compared with $50 million in 2021. FCX has long-lived reserves and a significant resource position in its existing portfolio.
LIQUIDITY, CASH FLOWS, CASH AND DEBT
Liquidity. At June 30, 2022, FCX had $9.5 billion in consolidated cash and cash equivalents and $3.5 billion of availability under its revolving credit facility. In addition, PT-FI and Cerro Verde have $1.3 billion and $350 million, respectively, of availability under their revolving credit facilities.
Operating Cash Flows. FCX generated operating cash flows of $1.6 billion (including $0.1 billion of working capital and other sources) in second-quarter 2022 and $3.3 billion (net of $0.7 billion of working capital and other uses) for the first six months of 2022.
Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, and assuming average prices of $3.25 per pound of copper, $1,700 per ounce of gold and $16.00 per pound of molybdenum for the second half of 2022, FCX's consolidated operating cash flows are estimated to approximate $4.5 billion (net of $1.4 billion of working capital and other uses) for the year 2022. The impact of price changes for the second half of 2022 on operating cash flows would approximate $230 million for each $0.10 per pound change in the average price of copper, $80 million for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold and $50 million for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum.
Capital Expenditures. Capital expenditures totaled $0.9 billion in second-quarter 2022 (including $0.4 billion for major mining projects and $0.2 billion for the Indonesia smelter projects) and $1.6 billion for the first six months of 2022 (including $0.8 billion for major mining projects and $0.3 billion for the Indonesia smelter projects).
Capital expenditures are expected to approximate $4.5 billion for the year 2022 (including $1.9 billion for major mining projects and $1.4 billion for the Indonesia smelter projects). Projected capital expenditures for major mining projects include $1.3 billion for planned projects primarily associated with underground mine development in the Grasberg minerals district and supporting mill and power capital costs and $0.6 billion for discretionary growth projects. Capital expenditures for the Indonesia smelter projects are being funded with PT-FI's senior notes and its available revolving credit facility.

At June 30, 2022, there were no borrowings and $8 million in letters of credit issued under FCX's $3.5 billion revolving credit facility.
In April 2022, PT-FI completed the sale of $3.0 billion of unsecured senior notes with an average duration of approximately 14 years and a weighted-average interest rate of 5.4 percent. PT-FI used $0.6 billion of the net proceeds to repay borrowings under its term loan and expects to use the remaining net proceeds to finance its smelter projects.
In April 2022, PT-FI amended its five-year, unsecured revolving credit facility to increase the facility by $1.0 billion, to $1.3 billion (which became effective in May 2022). At June 30, 2022, no amounts were drawn under the revolving credit facility.
In second-quarter 2022, Cerro Verde entered into a new $350 million, five-year, unsecured revolving credit facility, and repaid the outstanding balance of its term loan. As of June 30, 2022, no amounts were outstanding under the Cerro Verde revolving credit facility.
Through July 20, 2022, FCX purchased $754 million aggregate principal amount of its senior notes in open-market transactions for a total cost of $718 million (including $582 million aggregate principal amount in second-quarter 2022), resulting in annual cash interest savings of $36 million.
During second-quarter 2022, FCX recorded a net gain on extinguishment of debt totaling $8 million, consisting of $18 million associated with its senior note purchases, partly offset by a charge of $10 million associated with the repayment of the PT-FI term loan.

FINANCIAL POLICY
FCX's financial policy is aligned with its strategic objectives of maintaining a strong balance sheet and increasing cash returns to shareholders while advancing opportunities for future growth. The policy includes a base dividend and a performance-based payout framework, whereby up to 50 percent of available cash flows generated after planned capital spending and distributions to noncontrolling interests would be allocated to shareholder returns and the balance to debt reduction and investments in value enhancing growth projects, subject to FCX maintaining its net debt at a level not to exceed the net debt target of $3.0 billion to $4.0 billion (excluding project debt for

additional smelting capacity in Indonesia). The Board will review the structure of the performance-based payout framework at least annually.
At June 30, 2022, FCX's net debt, excluding net debt for the Indonesia smelter projects, totaled $1.0 billion. Refer to the supplemental schedule, "Net Debt," on page IX.
On June 22, 2022, FCX declared dividends totaling $0.15 per share on its common stock (which included a $0.075 per share quarterly base cash dividend and a $0.075 per share quarterly variable cash dividend), which will be paid on August 1, 2022, to shareholders of record as of July 15, 2022. The declaration and payment of dividends (base or variable) is at the discretion of the Board and will depend on FCX's financial results, cash requirements, business prospects, global economic conditions and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.
In July 2022, the Board authorized an increase in the share repurchase program from $3.0 billion to up to $5.0 billion. Through July 20, 2022, FCX acquired 47.9 million shares of its common stock for a total cost of $1.8 billion ($38.35 average cost per share) under its share repurchase program, including 35.1 million shares for a total cost of $1.3 billion ($38.36 average cost per share) during 2022. As of July 20, 2022, FCX has 1.43 billion shares of common stock outstanding and $3.2 billion is available under its share repurchase program. The timing and amount of share repurchases is at the discretion of management and will depend on a variety of factors. The share repurchase program may be modified, increased, suspended or terminated at any time at the Board’s discretion.

c.Includes valuation allowance release on prior year unbenefited net operating losses.
d.In accordance with applicable accounting rules, FCX adjusts its interim provision for income taxes equal to its consolidated tax rate.
Assuming achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates and average prices of $3.25 per pound for copper, $1,700 per ounce for gold and $16.00 per pound for molybdenum for the second half of 2022, FCX estimates its consolidated effective tax rate for the year 2022 would approximate 34 percent (which would result in a 47 percent effective tax rate in third-quarter 2022). The effective tax rate would decrease with higher prices. Changes in projected sales volumes and average prices during 2022 would incur tax impacts at estimated effective rates of 39 percent for Peru, 38 percent for Indonesia and 0 percent for the U.S.

NET DEBT
Net debt, which FCX defines as consolidated debt less consolidated cash and cash equivalents, is intended to provide investors with information related to the performance-based payout framework in FCX’s financial policy, which requires achievement of a net debt target in the range of $3 billion to $4 billion (excluding project debt for additional smelting capacity in Indonesia). This information differs from consolidated debt determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated debt determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS
For the six months ended June 30, 2022, FCX's mined copper was sold 60 percent in concentrate, 18 percent as cathode and 22 percent as rod from North America operations. Substantially all of FCX's copper concentrate and cathode sales contracts provide final copper pricing in a specified future month (generally one to four months from the shipment date) based primarily on quoted London Metal Exchange (LME) monthly average copper prices. FCX records revenues and invoices customers at the time of shipment based on then-current LME prices, which results in an embedded derivative on provisionally priced concentrate and cathode sales that is adjusted to fair value through earnings each period, using the period-end forward prices, until final pricing on the date of settlement. LME copper settlement prices averaged $4.31 per pound during second-quarter 2022 and settled at $3.74 per pound on June 30, 2022. Because a significant portion of FCX's copper concentrate and cathode sales in any quarterly period usually remain subject to final pricing, the quarter-end forward price is a major determinant of the average recorded copper price for the period. FCX's average realized copper price was $4.03 per pound in second-quarter 2022.

FCX estimates that each $0.05 change in the price realized from the quarter-end provisional price would have an approximate $14 million effect on 2022 net income attributable to common stock. The LME copper price settled at $3.34 per pound on July 20, 2022.

Freeport-McMoRan Inc.
DEFERRED PROFITS
FCX defers recognizing profits on sales from its mining operations to Atlantic Copper and on 39.5 percent of PT-FI's sales to PT Smelting (PT-FI's 39.5 percent-owned Indonesia smelting unit) until final sales to third parties occur. Changes in these deferrals attributable to variability in intercompany volumes resulted in net (reductions) additions to operating income totaling $(7) million (less than $1 million to net income attributable to common stock) in second-quarter 2022, $(99) million ($(81) million to net income attributable to common stock) in second-quarter 2021, $40 million ($23 million to net income attributable to common stock) for the first six months of 2022 and $(185) million ($(145) million to net income attributable to common stock) for the first six months of 2021. FCX's net deferred profits on its inventories at Atlantic Copper and PT Smelting to be recognized in future periods' net income attributable to common stock totaled $157 million at June 30, 2022. Quarterly variations in ore grades, the timing of intercompany shipments and changes in product prices will result in variability in FCX's net deferred profits and quarterly earnings.

BUSINESS SEGMENTS
FCX has organized its mining operations into four primary divisions – North America copper mines, South America mining, Indonesia mining and Molybdenum mines, and operating segments that meet certain thresholds are reportable segments. Separately disclosed in the following tables are FCX's reportable segments, which include the Morenci and Cerro Verde copper mines, the Grasberg minerals district (Indonesia Mining), the Rod & Refining operations and Atlantic Copper Smelting & Refining.
Intersegment sales between FCX’s business segments are based on terms similar to arms-length transactions with third parties at the time of the sale. Intersegment sales may not be reflective of the actual prices ultimately realized because of a variety of factors, including additional processing, the timing of sales to unaffiliated customers and transportation premiums.
FCX allocates certain operating costs, expenses and capital expenditures to its operating divisions and individual segments. However, not all costs and expenses applicable to an operation are allocated. U.S. federal and state income taxes are recorded and managed at the corporate level (included in Corporate, Other & Eliminations), whereas foreign income taxes are recorded and managed at the applicable country level. In addition, most mining exploration and research activities are managed on a consolidated basis, and those costs along with some selling, general and administrative costs, are not allocated to the operating divisions or individual segments. Accordingly, the following segment information reflects management determinations that may not be indicative of what the actual financial performance of each operating division or segment would be if it was an independent entity.
