Rio Tinto Kennecott
Supporting and enhancing a sustainable economy in the Salt Lake Valley is integral for us as a valuable member of the community. We harness resources and create prosperity for our shareholders, employees, communities, governments and business partners through salaries, taxes and contracts. Our objective is to understand and maximize the benefits we bring to the economy at local, regional and national levels. We contribute to Utah and surrounding communities by being a leader in production, exports, revenue and employment.
Throughout the history of the Bingham Canyon Mine, no other single private sector operation has generated more production, exports, income and employment for as many years in the state. As the second-largest copper producer in the United States, we produce nearly a quarter of the U.S. annual refined copper production. The Bingham Canyon Mine is one of the top-producing copper mines in the world with total production of more than 19 million tons.
