Who we are

CSA Mine is one of Australia’s highest grade copper mining operations, and part of Glencore, one of the world’s largest diversified natural resource companies.


CSA Mine is located 11 kilometres north-west of Cobar, central western New South Wales. At 1.75 kilometres deep, it is one of Australia’s deepest underground mines. 

In addition to the current operations, we also hold 820 square kilometres of tenements with the potential to expand and extend CSA’s future mine life.


Copper in everyday life

The copper we produce at CSA Mine is used in a wide range of products and is critical for a low carbon energy future.

From electronics, renewable energy and electric vehicle batteries, copper has a vast range of household and industrial uses.

It is found in products we use every day – such as smartphones, electrical wiring, electricity production and transmission, circuit boards of iPads and Xboxes, plumbing, air conditioning units and car batteries. 

Copper will continue to play a major role in enabling the global transition to a low carbon economy.  It is the best non-precious conductor of heat, cooling and electricity and drives energy efficiency.  Found in wind turbines and solar panels, it is 100% recyclable.

At CSA Mine the ore grade averages over 5% and with some as high as 12%, making it one of the richest copper ore deposits in the world.
