A Phoenix team at Accenture is helping Freeport-McMoRan Inc. digitally connect its mining operations to be more effective, efficient and safer. The local Accenture team specially built its Connected Mine solution for Freeport, which has been used for its Morenci open-pit copper mine in southeast Arizona near the New Mexico border. Phoenix-based mining conglomerate Freeport (FCX) is the largest producer of molybdenum, and the second largest copper producer, in the world.
