Responsible Production
2020 Annual Report on Sustainability. In April 2021, FCX published its 2020 Annual Report on Sustainability, which is available on FCX's website at fcx.com. FCX has a long history of environmental, social and governance (ESG) programs and is continuously striving to improve and respond to evolving stakeholder expectations. This report marked FCX’s 20th year of reporting on its sustainability progress and FCX’s first year reporting in alignment with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board Metals & Mining framework. FCX is committed to building upon its achievements in sustainability and seeks to contribute positively to society by supplying the world with responsibly produced copper.
The Copper Mark. In June 2021, FCX commenced the Copper Mark assessment process at five additional operating sites, including Bagdad, Chino, Tyrone, Safford and Sierrita. Each of these sites will complete an external assurance process to assess conformance with the Copper Mark’s 32 ESG requirements, with a goal of being awarded the Copper Mark. The Copper Mark is a robust assurance framework that demonstrates the copper industry's responsible production practices and contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. To date, FCX has six sites that have achieved the Copper Mark (the Morenci operations, Miami smelter and mine, and El Paso refinery in North America; Cerro Verde and El Abra mines in South America; and Atlantic Copper smelter and refinery in Spain). FCX has future plans to validate all of its copper producing sites with the Copper Mark requirements.
Ongoing COVID-19 Management. FCX continues its vigilant operating protocols at each of its operating sites to contain and mitigate the risk of spread of COVID-19. FCX’s protocols have been effective in mitigating and preventing a major outbreak of COVID-19 at its operating sites. FCX is continuing to monitor, assess and update its COVID-19 related response and is providing assistance to employees in obtaining vaccinations.

Consolidated Sales Volumes
Second-quarter 2021 copper sales of 929 million pounds and gold sales of 305 thousand ounces were approximately 5 percent and 8 percent lower, respectively, than the April 2021 estimates of 975 million pounds of copper and 330 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting the timing of shipments from Indonesia.
Second-quarter 2021 copper sales were 22 percent higher and gold sales were 66 percent higher than second-quarter 2020 sales of 759 million pounds of copper and 184 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting continued progress of the ramp-up of underground mining at PT-FI and increased operating rates at Cerro Verde.
Second-quarter 2021 molybdenum sales of 22 million pounds approximated the April 2021 estimate. Second-quarter 2021 molybdenum sales were higher than second-quarter 2020 sales of 18 million pounds of molybdenum, primarily reflecting increased demand and timing of shipments.
Consolidated sales volumes for the year 2021 are expected to approximate 3.85 billion pounds of copper, 1.3 million ounces of gold and 86 million pounds of molybdenum, including 1.035 billion pounds of copper, 360 thousand ounces of gold and 21 million pounds of molybdenum in third-quarter 2021. Projected sales volumes are dependent on operational performance, continued progress of the ramp-up of underground mining at PT-FI, impacts and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, weather-related conditions, timing of shipments, and other factors.
Consolidated Unit Net Cash Costs
Consolidated average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for FCX's copper mines of $1.48 per pound of copper in second-quarter 2021, were higher than the April 2021 estimate of $1.42 per pound, primarily because of nonrecurring labor-related charges at Cerro Verde ($0.07 per pound of copper) for agreements reached with 57 percent of its hourly employees (including early agreement of a new four-year collective labor agreement (CLA) with one of its three unions). Consolidated average unit net cash costs in second-quarter 2021 approximated the second-quarter 2020 average of $1.47 per pound.
Assuming average prices of $1,800 per ounce of gold and $16.00 per pound of molybdenum for the second half of 2021 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 $1.35 per pound of copper for the year 2021. The impact of price changes during the second half of 2021 on consolidated unit net cash costs for the year 2021 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’s North America operating sites continue to achieve strong execution of operating plans. FCX successfully completed the initial development of the Lone Star copper leach project in the second half of 2020 and achieved design capacity approximating 200 million pounds annually. Current operations are exceeding the initial design. FCX continues to advance opportunities to increase Lone Star operating rates and is evaluating a potential additional incremental oxide expansion to increase volumes to over 300 million pounds of copper per year. The oxide project advances the opportunity for development of the large-scale sulfide resources at Lone Star.
FCX has substantial resources in the United States (U.S.), primarily associated with existing mining operations. Evaluation of project options for future growth are under way. In addition to Lone Star, FCX is actively advancing studies to add new capacity at its long-lived Bagdad operation in northwest Arizona.

FCX's consolidated copper sales volumes from North America of 389 million pounds in second-quarter 2021 were higher than second-quarter 2020 copper sales volumes of 368 million pounds, primarily reflecting timing of shipments. North America copper sales are estimated to approximate 1.47 billion pounds for the year 2021, compared with 1.4 billion pounds for the year 2020.
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for the North America copper mines of $1.97 per pound of copper in second-quarter 2021 were higher than second-quarter 2020 unit net cash costs of $1.78 per pound, primarily reflecting costs associated with higher mining and milling rates and higher maintenance and input costs, partly offset by higher by-product credits.
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for the North America copper mines are expected to approximate $1.91 per pound of copper for the year 2021, based on achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates and assuming an average molybdenum price of $16.00 per pound for the second half of 2021. North America's average unit net cash costs for the year 2021 would change by approximately $0.02 per pound for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum for the second half of 2021.

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 2021, milling rates at Cerro Verde's concentrator facilities were slightly above forecast and averaged 374,100 metric tons of ore per day. Cerro Verde expects milling rates to return to pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels of approximately 400,000 metric tons of ore per day in 2022.
El Abra is implementing plans to increase operating rates to pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels, subject to ongoing monitoring of public health conditions in Chile. Stacking rates at El Abra averaged 94,200 metric tons per











a2021fcxlogosmall.jpg

a2021chargingahead.jpg
day in second-quarter 2021, approximately 25 percent higher than second-quarter 2020. Increased stacking rates are expected to result in incremental annual production of approximately 70 million pounds of copper beginning in mid-2022, compared with 2020 levels. A new leach pad is under construction to accommodate planned stacking rates for the next several years.
FCX continues to evaluate a large-scale expansion at El Abra to process additional sulfide material and to achieve higher copper recoveries. El Abra's large sulfide resource could potentially support a major mill project similar to facilities 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 monitoring potential changes in government fiscal matters in Chile and will defer major investment decisions pending clarity on these matters.

a2021chargingahead.jpg
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for South America mining are expected to approximate $2.02 per pound of copper for the year 2021, 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 2021.
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 shareholders agreement, FCX’s economic interest in PT-FI approximates 81 percent through 2022. PT-FI's results are consolidated in FCX's financial statements.
PT-FI continues to operate with protocols designed to protect the health and safety of its workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic. During second-quarter 2021, PT-FI began to administer vaccines to its workforce and expects this program to accelerate through the second half of 2021. Following an increase in COVID-19 cases in Indonesia, PT-FI has recently reinstituted heightened protocols and travel restrictions to protect the health of its workforce and the surrounding community.
Operating and Development Activities. The ramp-up of underground production at the Grasberg minerals district in Indonesia continues to advance on schedule. Second-quarter 2021 highlights include:
Production approximated 78 percent of the projected ultimate annualized level and is expected to reach 100 percent by year-end 2021.
A total of 41 new drawbells were constructed at the Grasberg Block Cave and Deep Mill Level Zone (DMLZ) underground mines, bringing cumulative open drawbells to over 460.
Combined average production from the Grasberg Block Cave and DMLZ underground mines approximated 118,300 metric tons of ore per day. During second-quarter 2021, Grasberg Block Cave achieved a daily record of 107,000 metric tons of ore per day.
The successful completion of this ramp up is expected to enable PT-FI to generate average annual production of 1.55 billion pounds of copper and 1.6 million ounces of gold for the next several years at an attractive unit net cash cost, providing significant margins and cash flows. PT-FI expects production for the year 2021 to approximate 1.3 billion pounds of copper and 1.3 million ounces of gold, nearly double 2020 levels.
PT-FI's estimated annual capital spending on underground mine development projects is expected to average approximately $0.9 billion per year for 2021 and 2022, net of scheduled contributions from PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Persero) (PT Inalum, also known as MIND ID). In accordance with applicable accounting guidance, aggregate costs (before scheduled contributions from PT Inalum), which are expected to average $1.1 billion per year for 2021 and 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.
Indonesia Smelter. In connection with PT-FI’s 2018 agreement with the Indonesia government associated with the extension of its long-term mining rights, PT-FI committed to construct new domestic smelting capacity totaling 2 million metric tons of concentrate per year by December 2023. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, PT-FI selected a site for a greenfield smelter in East Java and initiated ground preparation and commenced engineering and commercial negotiations.
During 2020, PT-FI notified the Indonesia government of schedule delays resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to review with the government a revised schedule for the project.
To fulfill its obligation for new domestic smelter capacity in Indonesia, PT-FI is planning the following:
Expansion of annual capacity at PT Smelting (PT-FI's 39.5-percent owned copper smelter and refinery in Gresik, Indonesia) by 300,000 metric tons of concentrate, a 30 percent increase. PT-FI is advancing agreements with the majority owner of PT Smelting to implement the expansion plans with a target completion date of year-end 2023. PT-FI would fund the cost of the expansion, estimated to approximate $250 million, and increase its ownership in PT Smelting to a majority ownership interest.
Construction of a new greenfield smelter in Gresik, Indonesia with a capacity to process approximately 1.7 million metric tons of concentrate per year. In July 2021, PT-FI awarded a construction contract to Chiyoda with an estimated cost of $2.8 billion. The smelter construction is expected to be completed as soon as feasible in 2024, which is dependent on no further pandemic-related disruptions.











a2021fcxlogosmall.jpg

a2021chargingahead.jpg
Construction of a precious metals refinery to process gold and silver from PT Smelting and the new greenfield smelter in Gresik, at an estimated cost of $250 million.
PT-FI has recently entered into a $1 billion, five-year, unsecured bank credit facility to advance these projects. Additional debt financing is being planned to fund the projects with the cost of all such debt shared 49 percent by FCX and 51 percent by PT Inalum.
Construction of the new smelter capacity would result in the elimination of export duties, providing an offset to the economic cost associated with the smelter development.

a.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.
b.Excludes COVID-19 related costs of $0.03 per pound of copper in second-quarter 2020 and $0.01 per pound of copper for the first six months of 2020.
PT-FI's consolidated sales of 310 million pounds of copper and 302 thousand ounces of gold in second-quarter 2021 were higher than second-quarter 2020 consolidated sales of 172 million pounds of copper and 180 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting the ramp-up of underground mining at PT-FI. Consolidated sales volumes from PT-FI are expected to approximate 1.33 billion pounds of copper and 1.3 million ounces of gold for the year 2021, compared with 0.8 billion pounds of copper and 0.8 million ounces of gold for the year 2020.
Because of the fixed nature of a large portion of PT-FI's costs, unit net cash costs can vary significantly from quarter to quarter depending on copper and gold volumes. PT-FI's unit net cash costs (including gold and silver credits) of $0.25 per pound of copper in second-quarter 2021, were lower than unit net cash costs of $0.56 per pound in second-quarter 2020, primarily reflecting higher sales volumes.
Assuming an average gold price of $1,800 per ounce for the second half of 2021 and achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates, unit net cash costs (including gold and silver credits) for PT-FI are expected to approximate $0.19 per pound of copper for the year 2021. PT-FI's average unit net cash costs for the year 2021 would change by approximately $0.06 per pound for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold for the second half of 2021.

Molybdenum Mines. FCX operates two wholly owned molybdenum mines in Colorado - the Henderson underground mine and the Climax open-pit mine. The Henderson and Climax mines produce high-purity, chemical-grade molybdenum concentrate, which is typically further processed into value-added molybdenum chemical

a2021chargingahead.jpg
products. The majority of the molybdenum concentrate produced at the Henderson and Climax mines, as well as from FCX's North America and South America copper mines, is processed at FCX's conversion facilities.
Operating and Development Activities. Production from the molybdenum mines of 7 million pounds of molybdenum in second-quarter 2021 was slightly higher than production of 6 million pounds of molybdenum in second-quarter 2020. Refer to summary operating data on page 3 for FCX's consolidated molybdenum sales and average realized prices, which includes sales of molybdenum produced at the Molybdenum mines and from FCX's North America and South America copper mines.
Average unit net cash costs for the Molybdenum mines of $8.14 per pound of molybdenum in second-quarter 2021 were lower than average unit net cash costs of $8.97 per pound in second-quarter 2020, primarily reflecting higher volumes. Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, average unit net cash costs for the Molybdenum mines are expected to approximate $9.65 per pound of molybdenum for the year 2021.
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 generally 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 in North America and South America. Exploration expenditures for the year 2021 are expected to approximate $60 million. FCX has long-lived reserves and a significant resource position in its existing portfolio.
CASH FLOWS, CASH AND DEBT
Operating Cash Flows. FCX generated operating cash flows of $2.4 billion (including $0.5 billion of working capital and other sources) in second-quarter 2021 and $3.5 billion (including $0.2 billion of working capital and other sources) for the first six months of 2021.
Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, and assuming average prices of $4.25 per pound of copper, $1,800 per ounce of gold and $16.00 per pound of molybdenum for the second half of 2021, FCX's consolidated operating cash flows are estimated to approximate $7.5 billion (including $0.4 billion of working capital and other sources) for the year 2021. The impact of price changes for the second half of 2021 on operating cash flows would approximate $200 million for each $0.10 per pound change in the average price of copper, $50 million for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold and $55 million for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum.
Capital Expenditures. Capital expenditures totaled $0.4 billion in second-quarter 2021 (including approximately $0.3 billion for major projects) and $0.8 billion for the first six months of 2021 (including approximately $0.6 billion for major projects). Capital expenditures are expected to approximate $2.2 billion for the year 2021, including $1.4 billion for major projects primarily associated with underground development activities in the Grasberg minerals district and exclude Indonesia smelter expenditures, which are currently expected to approximate $0.3 billion during the second half of 2021 and will be funded through PT-FI's $1 billion unsecured bank credit facility.

At June 30, 2021, FCX had no borrowings, $8 million in letters of credit issued and $3.5 billion available under its revolving credit facility. FCX's 3.55% Senior Notes are due March 2022 ($524 million principal amount), the Cerro Verde Term Loan matures in June 2022, and FCX has no other senior note maturities until March 2023.
On July 19, 2021, PT-FI entered into $1 billion, five-year, unsecured bank credit facility (consisting of a $667 million term loan and a $333 million revolving credit facility). Amounts may be drawn under the term loan within the first three years. The loans mature in July 2026 and bear interest at the London Interbank Offered Rate plus a margin of 1.875% or 2.125%, as defined in the agreement.

FINANCIAL POLICY
In February 2021, FCX's Board of Directors (Board) adopted a new financial policy for the allocation of cash flows aligned with FCX’s strategic objectives of maintaining a strong balance sheet, increasing cash returns to shareholders and advancing opportunities for future growth. The policy includes a base dividend of $0.30 per share per year and a performance-based payout framework to be implemented following achievement of a net debt target in the range of $3 billion to $4 billion, excluding project debt for additional smelting capacity in Indonesia. Under the performance-based payout framework, 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.
Available cash flows for performance-based payout distributions in excess of the base dividend will be assessed by the Board at least annually. With the recent achievement of FCX's net debt target, FCX expects the Board to consider the amount of additional cash returns to shareholders following its 2021 annual results.
On June 23, 2021, FCX declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per share on its common stock, which will be paid on August 2, 2021, to shareholders of record as of July 15, 2021. The declaration of dividends is at the discretion of the Board and will depend upon FCX's financial results, cash requirements, future prospects and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.

b.In addition to FCX's North America mining operations, the U.S. jurisdiction reflects corporate-level expenses, which include interest expense associated with senior notes, general and administrative expenses, and environmental obligations and shutdown costs.
c.Includes valuation allowance release on prior year unbenefited net operating losses.
d.The second quarter and first six months of 2020 include a tax credit of $53 million associated with the reversal of a year-end 2019 tax charge related to the sale of FCX's interest in the lower zone of the Timok exploration project in Serbia. The first six months of 2020 also includes a tax credit of $6 million associated with the removal of a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.
e.In accordance with applicable accounting rules, FCX adjusts its interim provision for income taxes equal to its consolidated tax rate.
f.FCX's consolidated effective income tax rate is a function of the combined effective tax rates for the jurisdictions in which it operates.
g.Includes a tax charge of $8 million ($7 million net of noncontrolling interest) associated with an unfavorable 2012 Indonesia Supreme Court ruling.
h.FCX's U.S. jurisdiction generated net losses for the 2020 periods that did not result in a realized tax benefit; applicable accounting rules required FCX to adjust its estimated annual effective tax rate to exclude the impact of U.S. net losses.
Assuming achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates and average prices of $4.25 per pound for copper, $1,800 per ounce for gold and $16.00 per pound for molybdenum for the second half of 2021, FCX estimates its consolidated effective tax rate for the year 2021 would approximate 31 percent. Changes in projected sales volumes and average prices during 2021 would incur tax impacts at estimated effective rates of 40 percent for Peru, 38 percent for Indonesia and 0 percent for the U.S.

Freeport-McMoRan Inc.
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. FCX's net debt follows, which may not be comparable to similarly titled measures

DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS
For the six months ended June 30, 2021, FCX's mined copper was sold 59 percent in concentrate, 21 percent as cathode and 20 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 $4.40 per pound during second-quarter 2021 and settled at $4.26 per pound on June 30, 2021. 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 $4.34 per pound in second-quarter 2021.

At June 30, 2021, FCX had provisionally priced copper sales at its copper mining operations totaling 368 million pounds of copper (net of intercompany sales and noncontrolling interests) recorded at an average price of $4.25 per pound, subject to final pricing over the next several months. FCX estimates that each $0.05 change in the price realized from the quarter-end provisional price would have an approximate $12 million effect on 2021 net income attributable to common stock. The LME copper price settled at $4.21 per pound on July 21, 2021.

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 (loss) totaling $(99) million ($(81) million to net income attributable to common stock) in second-quarter 2021 and $(17) million ($(6) million to net income attributable to common stock) in second-quarter 2020, $(185) million ($(145) million to net income attributable to common stock) for the first six months of 2021 and $(6) million ($1 million to net loss attributable to common stock) for the first six months of 2020. 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 $207 million at June 30, 2021. 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. FCX currently estimates that approximately 40 percent of the net deferred profit balance will be recognized as income in the second half of 2021.

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, Cerro Verde and Grasberg (Indonesia Mining) copper mines, 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.
