Southern Peru Copper Corporation (SPCC) is an integrated producer of copper that operates mining, smelting and refining facilities in the southern part of Peru. The copper operations of the Company involve mining, milling and flotation of copper ore to produce copper concentrates, the smelting of copper concentrates to produce blister copper and the refining of blister copper to produce copper cathodes. SPCC also produces refined copper using the solvent extraction/electrowinning (SX/EW) technology. Silver, molybdenum and small amounts of other metals are contained in copper ore as by-products. Silver sold is recovered in the refining process or as an element of blister copper. Molybdenum is recovered from copper concentrate in a molybdenum by-product plant. SPCC operates the Toquepala and Cuajone mines, high in the Andes, approximately 984 kilometers southeast of Lima. It also operates a smelter and refinery west of the mines at the Pacific Ocean Coast City of Ilo, Peru.
