Satellite Remote Sensing for Mining Facility Management
A Freeport-McMoran Case Study

Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) has a strong commitment to safety performance, environmental management, and local communities where it operates. It is committed to zero catastrophic failures or unplanned discharges from its Tailings Storage Facilities (TSFs). New remote sensing technologies play an important role in meeting this goal and help the Tailings, Crushed Leach and Water (TCLW) team make the right decisions while monitoring TSFs efficiently, holistically, and safely.
