Virtual Mine Tour for Students

Discovery Education and Freeport-McMoRan have partnered to create a FREE interactive program for grades 6-8 that uncovers the use of transition metals such as copper, gold and molybdenum in our everyday life, and provides students a deeper understanding of today’s hard rock mining industry.
