We have world class zinc and copper operations across multiple North Queensland sites in Mount Isa and Townsville. At these operations we mine, process and export some of the highest grade zinc-lead and copper products in the world.

Operational changes

Glencore has announced that Mount Isa Mines (MIM) will transition operations to focus on its long-life zinc assets and copper smelting and refining operations moving forward in Queensland.
