The company, controlled by London-listed Antofagasta plc, also mines gold and molybdenum, which last year saw production of 270,900oz and 7,100t, respectively.
In addition to mining, the company operates the Antofagasta-Bolivia railway company (FCAB), and until 2015 it also operated the Aguas Antofagasta water utility, which it sold to Colombia's EPM for US$1bn.
Founded in 1888 to manage the Antofagasta-Bolivia railway, the company was acquired in 1979 by Andronico Luksic, the patriarch of one of Chile's wealthiest families. The Luksic group also has interests in a variety of sectors from banking to brewing.
