KGHM International has grown to be a globally diverse mining company, with operations and projects in Canada, Chile, Greenland and the United States and is a growth vehicle for our parent company, KGHM Polska Miedź, S.A. Each of our operations is located within their own distinct communities, whether they are situated near a small town in the middle of the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile, or within a renowned world-class mining camp in Canada. We appreciate and recognize that each site is unique and do our best to be a good neighbour wherever we operate.

We believe in four very important values: Zero Harm, Results Driven, Success Through Teamwork, and Courageous. These
values not only guide how we behave at our operations, they provide the foundation for how we interact and communicate
with our surrounding communities. These values help to ensure that we are operating in a safe, socially accountable and
environmentally responsible manner.

Zero Harm is at the heart of our core values. We are committed to the health and safety of our employees and the communities in which we operate. Our Zero Harm commitment applies not only to our employees, but also to the environments in which we live, work and play. Through careful planning and practices we minimize the impact of our activities, from development to operation, to closure and rehabilitation.

KGHM International considers itself part of the communities in which it operates. Our success is dependent on the collaborative, team-oriented, partner-style working relationships we have with our employees, contractors, local and indigenous communities, and other stakeholders. These relationships support the exchange of our experiences, resources and efforts. Staying true to our core values of Zero Harm and Success Through Teamwork, we consider a broad range of social, cultural and economic factors in the execution of each project.

KGHM International management takes a leadership role to support community engagement, development and general wellbeing. Our performance is measured against recognized standards. We encourage employees to contribute and involve themselves with local programs for the betterment of their communities, and to communicate our corporate commitments to all stakeholders.

As you read and learn about our various operations and projects, you will notice that despite the challenges of living and working around the world, every one of us truly believes in our core values and is
proud to be part of the KGHM International global family.

I invite you to read what we are doing in all of our communities and welcome your feedback.
