First Quantum Minerals Ltd. ha crecido desde una operación mineral pequeña en Zambia hasta convertirse en una empresa de minería multinacional en menos de dos décadas, con un portafolio de recursos de níquel y cobre en Europa, África, Australia y Suramérica. Este crecimiento fenomenal ha sido gracias al equipo de FQM, quienes se han esforzado por ser más audaces, inteligentes y estar motivados en todo lo que hacen.

En marzo de 2013, First Quantum Minerals adquirió la corporación Inmet Mining, una compañía de minería canadiense productora de cobre y zinc a partir de minas en Finlandia, España y Turquía, con un depósito de cobre importante bajo desarrollo en Panamá, conocido como Cobre Panamá. La combinación de los activos de First Quantum e Inmet han creado uno de los productores de cobre más importantes del mundo con un portafolio diversificado geográficamente y con proyectos de desarrollo y operaciones de alta calidad en ocho países a lo largo de cinco continentes.
