copper production

We produce about 50,000 tonnes of copper each year. This is mined and processed onsite, and railed 700 kilometres to the Port of Newcastle for export to smelters in Asia.

Who we are

At CSA Mine, the ore grade averages between 5% and 12%, making it one of the richest copper ore deposits in the world.

Operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, CSA Mine directly employs 500 people including contractors.

Many are based in the local township of Cobar and embrace a remote, tight-knit community lifestyle.

We aim to positively impact communities associated with our operations through direct employment and buying goods and services from local and regional business.


At Glencore Australia, we prioritise the health and safety of our people, reducing our environmental impacts and investing in the community.
