Freeport-McMoRan Gets An Olympic Gift

Last week, BHP Billiton (BHP) officially announced the delay of the major expansion project at Olympic Dam.

Freeport-McMoRan is a leading international mining company with geographically diverse assets with significant proven and probable reserves of copper, gold and molybdenum.
