South32 is a globally diversified mining and metals company. We produce commodities including bauxite, alumina, aluminium, copper, silver, lead, zinc, nickel, metallurgical coal and manganese from our operations in Australia, Southern Africa and South America.
Around the world, we’re helping people improve their lives through the development of natural resources.
We produce bauxite, alumina, aluminium, copper, silver, lead, zinc, nickel, metallurgical coal and manganese at our operations in Australia, Southern Africa and South America. With a focus on growing our base metals exposure, we also have two development options in North America and several partnerships with junior explorers around the world.
Whether it’s for use in construction, energy and renewables, the automotive industry or consumer goods, we believe the extraction and processing of minerals and metals can be done in a responsible way.
Our commodities can be found in nearly every aspect of our lives.
They power our homes, start our cars, build our roads, bridges, skyscrapers and hospitals and even make our coins and jewellery.
We invest in exploration activities inside and outside of our portfolio, helping us to keep growing and diversifying. Our exploration activities are carefully selected to have a high chance of success and are spread around the world, including places we have not operated in before. We are looking to partner and invest with junior miners, allowing us access to attractive opportunities while reducing our operational risk.
We have a central marketing team that works across all our operations. Marketing is managed out of Singapore with support offices in London, South Africa, and Australia.
The marketing team works closely with our operations to make decisions on how to get our resource to market and is also responsible for commodity sales, purchasing of strategic raw materials and managing the delivery of commodities to customers.
