The 12th International Copper Conference (Copper 2025)

November 16–20, 2025 • Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass
Phoenix, Arizona, USA

The 12th International Copper Conference (Copper 2025)—the largest copper technical conference with a tradition of more than 30 years—will once again feature sessions on mining, mineral processing, pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy, electrometallurgy, process control, and instrumentation. Co-located with Extraction 2025, the conference will also offer cross-cutting symposia that will involve discussions on topics such as economics, recycling, sustainability, impact investment, health and safety, and Industry 4.0.

Copper 2025 also marks the first opportunity in the conference series to organize a multi-commodity dialogue, with the intent of leading to a more prosperous society. A multi-metal recovery approach enables copper experts to understand how copper, nickel, cobalt, and other critical materials are related. Optimization of multi-metals flowsheets can ensure maximization of our natural resources.
