First Quantum Minerals Ltd. se ha convertido en una empresa minera multinacional en menos de dos décadas; actualmente cuenta con recursos de níquel y cobre en Europa, África, Australia y Sudamérica. Este crecimiento exponencial ha sido gracias al trabajo del equipo de FQM, quienes se han esforzado por ser más audaces, más inteligentes y más tenaces en todo lo que hacen.

En marzo de 2013, First Quantum Minerals adquirió Inmet Mining, una compañía minera canadiense productora de cobre y zinc con minas en Finlandia, España y Turquía, además de estar en posesión de un importante depósito de cobre en 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 presentes alrededor de los cinco continentes.

Con un plan estratégico para producir más de 1 millon de toneladas de cobre por año, la compañía estará preparada para convertirse en el productor de cobre más grande dentro de cinco años y uno de los cinco más importantes del mundo.
