Consolidated Sales Volumes
    Fourth-quarter 2020 copper sales of 866 million pounds were 3 percent higher than the October 2020 estimate of 840 million pounds of copper, primarily reflecting higher sales from Cerro Verde and Indonesia. Fourth-quarter 2020 copper sales were lower than fourth-quarter 2019 sales of 906 million pounds of copper, primarily reflecting previously announced operating plan adjustments, partly offset by higher mining rates and copper ore grades in Indonesia.
    Fourth-quarter 2020 gold sales of 293 thousand ounces were 9 percent higher than the October 2020 estimate of 270 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting higher gold ore grades in Indonesia. Fourth-quarter 2020 gold sales were lower than fourth-quarter 2019 sales of 317 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting timing of shipments in fourth-quarter 2019.
    Fourth-quarter 2020 molybdenum sales of 21 million pounds were in line with both the October 2020 estimate and fourth-quarter 2019 sales of 22 million pounds.
    Consolidated sales volumes for the year 2021 are expected to approximate 3.8 billion pounds of copper, 1.3 million ounces of gold and 85 million pounds of molybdenum, including 825 million pounds of copper, 275 thousand ounces of gold and 20 million pounds of molybdenum in first-quarter 2021. Projected sales volumes are dependent on operational performance, continued progress of the ramp-up of underground mining at PT Freeport Indonesia (PT-FI), impacts and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, timing of shipments, and other factors.
Consolidated Unit Net Cash Costs
    Consolidated average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for FCX's copper mines of $1.28 per pound of copper in fourth-quarter 2020, were lower than the October 2020 estimate of $1.32 per pound, primarily reflecting higher copper sales volumes and by-product credits. As anticipated, consolidated average unit net cash costs in fourth-quarter 2020 of $1.28 per pound were significantly lower than the fourth-quarter 2019 average of $1.67 per pound, primarily reflecting lower mining costs and higher by-product credits.
Assuming average prices of $1,850 per ounce of gold and $9.00 per pound of molybdenum for 2021 and achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates, consolidated unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for FCX's copper mines are expected to average $1.25 per pound of copper for the year 2021. The impact of price changes on 2021 consolidated unit net cash costs would approximate $0.03 per pound of copper for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold and $0.01 per pound of copper for each $2 per pound change in the

average price of molybdenum. Quarterly unit net cash costs vary with fluctuations in sales volumes and realized prices, primarily for gold and molybdenum.
MINING OPERATIONS

North America Copper Mines. FCX operates seven open-pit copper mines in North America - Morenci, Bagdad, Safford (including Lone Star), Sierrita and Miami in Arizona, and Chino and Tyrone in New Mexico. In addition to copper, certain of these mines produce molybdenum concentrate, gold and silver. All of the North America mining operations are wholly owned, except for Morenci. FCX records its 72 percent undivided joint venture interest in Morenci using the proportionate consolidation method.
    Operating and Development Activities. FCX’s North America operating sites continue to focus on strong execution of operating plans. Production from Lone Star continues to ramp-up on schedule and is expected to exceed 200 million pounds of copper for the year 2021. FCX plans to advance studies for potential expansions and long-term development options for its large-scale sulfide resources at Lone Star.
In January 2021, FCX restarted mining activities at the Chino mine at a reduced rate of approximately 100 million pounds of copper per year (approximately 50 percent of capacity).
FCX has substantial resources in the United States (U.S.), primarily associated with existing mining operations, and will continue to assess options for future growth.
    Operating Data. Following is summary consolidated operating data for the North America copper mines:

Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for the North America copper mines of $1.76 per pound of copper in fourth-quarter 2020 were lower than fourth-quarter 2019 unit net cash costs of $1.96 per pound, primarily reflecting lower mining rates and cost reductions associated with the April 2020 revised operating plans, partly offset by lower sales volumes.
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for the North America copper mines are expected to approximate $1.86 per pound of copper for the year 2021, based on achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates and assuming an average molybdenum price of $9.00 per pound. North America's average unit net cash costs for the year 2021 would change by approximately $0.05 per pound of copper for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum.

South America Mining. FCX operates two copper mines in South America - Cerro Verde in Peru (in which FCX owns a 53.56 percent interest) and El Abra in Chile (in which FCX owns a 51 percent interest). These operations are consolidated in FCX's financial statements. In addition to copper, the Cerro Verde mine produces molybdenum concentrate and silver.    
    Operating and Development Activities. During fourth-quarter 2020, Cerro Verde continued to increase milling rates to an average of 373,200 metric tons of ore per day while operating consistent with the April 2020 revised operating plans and under strict COVID-19 restrictions and protocols. FCX expects Cerro Verde's mill rates to average approximately 360,000 metric tons of ore per day in 2021 with the potential to ramp-up to pre-COVID-19 levels approximating 400,000 metric tons of ore per day as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
El Abra plans to increase operating rates during 2021 to pre-COVID-19 levels, subject to ongoing monitoring of public health conditions in Chile. Incremental copper production associated with increasing El Abra's stacking rates from 65,000 metric tons of ore per day to over 100,000 metric tons of ore per day, approximates 70 million pounds per year beginning in 2022.
FCX continues to evaluate a large-scale expansion at El Abra to process additional sulfide material and to
achieve higher recoveries. El Abra's large sulfide resource could potentially support a major mill project similar to
facilities constructed at Cerro Verde. Technical and economic studies continue to be evaluated to determine the
optimal scope and timing for the project in parallel with extending the life of the current leaching operation.

    FCX's consolidated copper sales volumes from South America of 260 million pounds in fourth-quarter 2020 were lower than fourth-quarter 2019 copper sales volumes of 345 million pounds, primarily reflecting lower mining rates associated with COVID-19 protocols and the April 2020 revised operating plans.
    Copper sales from South America mining are expected to approximate 1.0 billion pounds for the year 2021, consistent with the year 2020.
    Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for South America mining of $1.88 per pound of copper in fourth-quarter 2020 were higher than average unit net cash costs of $1.85 per pound in fourth-quarter 2019, primarily reflecting lower sales volumes, mostly offset by lower mining and input costs and higher by-product credits.
    Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for South America mining are expected to approximate $1.92 per pound of copper for the year 2021, based on current sales volume and cost estimates and assuming an average price of $9.00 per pound of molybdenum.
Indonesia Mining. PT-FI operates one of the world’s largest copper and gold mines at the Grasberg minerals district in Papua, Indonesia. PT-FI produces copper concentrate that contains significant quantities of gold and silver. FCX has a 48.76 percent ownership interest in PT-FI and manages its mining operations. Under the terms of the shareholders agreement, FCX’s economic interest in PT-FI approximates 81 percent through 2022. PT-FI's results are consolidated in FCX's financial statements.
    Operating and Development Activities. The ramp-up of underground production at the Grasberg minerals district in Indonesia continues to advance on schedule. During fourth-quarter 2020, a total of 56 new drawbells were constructed at the Grasberg Block Cave and Deep Mill Level Zone (DMLZ) underground mines, bringing cumulative open drawbells to over 370. Combined average production from the Grasberg Block Cave and DMLZ mines approximated 85,000 metric tons of ore per day during fourth-quarter 2020 (including approximately 95,000 metric tons of ore per day during the month of December). PT-FI expects production for the year 2021 to approximate 1.4 billion pounds of copper and 1.4 million ounces of gold, which is nearly double 2020 levels.
    The successful completion of this ramp up is expected to enable PT-FI to generate average annual production for the next several years of 1.55 billion pounds of copper and 1.6 million ounces of gold at an attractive unit net cash cost, providing significant margins and cash flows.
    PT-FI's estimated annual capital spending on underground mine development projects is expected to average approximately $0.9 billion per year for the two-year period 2021 through 2022, net of scheduled contributions from PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Persero) (PT Inalum). In accordance with applicable accounting guidance, aggregate costs (before scheduled contributions from PT Inalum), which are expected to average $1.1 billion per year for the two-year period 2021 through 2022, will be reflected as an investing activity in FCX's cash flow statement, and contributions from PT Inalum will be reflected as a financing activity.
    Indonesia Smelter. As a result of COVID-19 mitigation measures, there have been disruptions to work and travel schedules of international contractors and restrictions on access to the proposed physical site of the new smelter in Gresik, Indonesia. Accordingly, during 2020, PT-FI notified the Indonesia government of delays in achieving the completion timeline of December 2023. PT-FI continues to discuss with the Indonesia government a deferred schedule for the project as well as other alternatives in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and volatile global economic conditions.
In connection with its commitment to develop additional smelter capacity in Indonesia, PT-FI has advanced discussions with the majority owner of the existing smelter in Gresik, Indonesia (PT Smelting), which is 25-percent owned by PT-FI, regarding an expansion of the smelter to increase smelter concentrate treatment capacity by approximately 30 percent (300,000 metric tons of concentrate per year). Commercial and financial arrangements for this potential project are being advanced.
An expansion of PT Smelting would reduce PT-FI's smelter development commitment from 2.0 million metric tons of concentrate per year to 1.7 million metric tons per year. PT-FI continues to evaluate a new greenfield smelter project located in East Java in parallel with discussions with a third party to develop new smelter capacity at an alternate location in partnership with PT-FI.

b.Excludes COVID-19 related costs (including one-time incremental employee benefits and health and safety costs) totaling $0.02 per pound of copper.
    FCX's consolidated copper sales from PT-FI of 286 million pounds in fourth-quarter 2020 were higher than fourth-quarter 2019 consolidated copper sales of 203 million pounds, primarily reflecting higher mining rates and copper ore grades. FCX's consolidated gold sales from PT-FI of 293 thousand ounces in fourth-quarter 2020 were lower than fourth-quarter 2019 consolidated gold sales of 314 thousand ounces, primarily reflecting timing of shipments in fourth-quarter 2019.
FCX's consolidated sales volumes from PT-FI are expected to approximate 1.3 billion pounds of copper and 1.3 million ounces of gold for the year 2021, compared with 804 million pounds of copper and 0.8 million ounces of gold in 2020.
    Because of the fixed nature of a large portion of PT-FI's costs, unit net cash costs can vary significantly from quarter to quarter depending on copper and gold volumes. PT-FI's unit net cash costs (net of gold and silver credits) of $0.18 per pound of copper in fourth-quarter 2020, were lower than unit net cash costs of $0.84 per pound in fourth-quarter 2019, primarily reflecting higher copper sales volumes and lower mining costs, partly offset by the lower gold and silver credits.
    Average unit net cash costs (net of gold and silver credits) for PT-FI are expected to approximate $0.06 per pound of copper for the year 2021, based on achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates and assuming an average gold price of $1,850 per ounce. PT-FI's average unit net cash costs for the year 2021 would change by approximately $0.09 per pound of copper for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold.

Molybdenum Mines. FCX operates two wholly owned molybdenum mines in Colorado - the Henderson underground mine and the Climax open-pit mine. The Henderson and Climax mines produce high-purity, chemical-grade molybdenum concentrate, which is typically further processed into value-added molybdenum chemical products. The majority of the molybdenum concentrate produced at the Henderson and Climax mines, as well as from FCX's North America and South America copper mines, is processed at FCX's conversion facilities.
    Operating and Development Activities. Production from the molybdenum mines of 5 million pounds of molybdenum in fourth-quarter 2020 approximated fourth-quarter 2019. Refer to summary operating data on page 3

for FCX's consolidated molybdenum sales and average realized prices, which includes sales of molybdenum produced at the Molybdenum mines and from FCX's North America and South America copper mines.
    Average unit net cash costs for the Molybdenum mines of $9.23 per pound of molybdenum in fourth-quarter 2020 were lower than average unit net cash costs of $14.20 per pound in fourth-quarter 2019, primarily reflecting lower mining and input costs associated with the April 2020 revised operating plans. Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, average unit net cash costs for the Molybdenum mines are expected to approximate $9.80 per pound of molybdenum for the year 2021.
    For a reconciliation of unit net cash costs per pound to production and delivery costs applicable to sales reported in FCX's consolidated financial statements, refer to the supplemental schedules, "Product Revenues and Production Costs," beginning on page XIII.

EXPLORATION
FCX's mining exploration activities are generally associated with its existing mines, focusing on opportunities to expand reserves and resources to support development of additional future production capacity. Exploration results continue to indicate opportunities for significant future potential reserve additions in North America and South America. Exploration expenditures for the year 2021 are expected to approximate $34 million, consistent with the year 2020. FCX has long-lived reserves and a significant resource position in its existing portfolio.

PRELIMINARY ESTIMATED RECOVERABLE PROVEN AND PROBABLE MINERAL RESERVES
FCX has significant reserves, resources and future development opportunities within its portfolio of mining assets. FCX's preliminary estimated consolidated recoverable proven and probable reserves from its mines at December 31, 2020, include 113.2 billion pounds of copper, 28.9 million ounces of gold and 3.71 billion pounds of molybdenum, which were determined using metal price assumptions of $2.50 per pound for copper, $1,200 per ounce for gold and $10.00 per pound for molybdenum. The preliminary estimated recoverable proven and probable mining reserves presented in the table below represent the estimated metal quantities from which FCX expects to be paid after application of estimated metallurgical recovery rates and smelter recovery rates, where applicable. Recoverable reserve volumes are those which FCX estimates can be economically and legally extracted or produced at the time of the reserve determination.

The following table summarizes changes in FCX's preliminary estimated consolidated recoverable proven and probable copper, gold and molybdenum reserves during 2020:

Production(3.2)(0.9)(0.08)
Reserves at December 31, 2020113.2 28.9 3.71 
    In addition to the preliminary estimated consolidated recoverable proven and probable reserves, FCX's preliminary estimated mineralized material at December 31, 2020, which was assessed using $3.00 per pound for copper, totaled 120 billion pounds of incremental contained copper. FCX continues to pursue opportunities to convert this material into reserves, future production volumes and cash flow.
CASH FLOWS, CASH AND DEBT
    Operating Cash Flows. FCX generated operating cash flows of $1.3 billion (including $0.3 billion from working capital and other sources) in fourth-quarter 2020 and $3.0 billion (including $0.7 billion from working capital and other sources) for the year 2020.
Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, and assuming average prices of $3.50 per pound of copper, $1,850 per ounce of gold and $9.00 per pound of molybdenum, FCX's consolidated operating cash flows are estimated to approximate $5.5 billion (including $0.4 billion from working capital and other sources) for the year 2021. The impact of price changes during 2021 on operating cash flows would approximate $380 million for each $0.10 per pound change in the average price of copper, $120 million for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold and $80 million for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum.
Capital Expenditures. Capital expenditures totaled $0.4 billion in fourth-quarter 2020 (including approximately $0.3 billion primarily associated with underground development activities in the Grasberg minerals district) and $2.0 billion for the year 2020 (including approximately $1.2 billion primarily associated with underground development activities in the Grasberg minerals district and the now completed Lone Star copper leach project).
Capital expenditures are expected to approximate $2.3 billion for the year 2021, including $1.4 billion for major projects primarily associated with underground development activities in the Grasberg minerals district.
Asset Sale. On December 11, 2020, FCX completed the sale of its interests in the Kisanfu undeveloped exploration project in the DRC for $550 million (after-tax net cash proceeds totaled $415 million). An after-tax gain of $350 million was recorded in fourth-quarter 2020.
Cash. Following is a summary of the U.S. and international components of consolidated cash and cash equivalents available to the parent company, net of noncontrolling interests' share, taxes and other costs at December 31, 2020 (in billions):

With continued strong financial performance and successful execution of FCX's operating plans, management expects to recommend to the Board of Directors (Board) the resumption of common stock dividends during 2021 and anticipates an ongoing ability to increase cash returns to shareholders in the future. The declaration and payment of future dividends is at the discretion of the Board and will be assessed on an ongoing basis, taking into account FCX’s financial results, cash requirements, future prospects, global economic conditions, and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.

The declaration of future dividends is at the discretion of the Board and will depend on FCX's financial results, cash requirements, future prospects, global economic conditions, and other factors deemed relevant by the Board. In accordance with the June 2020 amendment to the revolving credit facility, FCX is currently restricted from declaring or paying common stock dividends through December 31,

a2021chargingahead1a.jpg
2021, unless FCX, at its option, reverts to the previous covenant requirements, which would also eliminate the restriction on the declaration or payment of common stock dividends.
FCX cautions readers that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results may differ materially from those anticipated, expected, projected or assumed in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that can cause FCX's actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, changes in the credit ratings of FCX; changes in FCX's cash requirements, financial position, financing plans or investment plans; changes in general market, economic, tax, regulatory or industry conditions; the duration and scope of and uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact thereof on commodity prices, FCX’s business and the global economy and any related actions taken by governments and businesses; FCX’s ability to contain and mitigate the risk of spread or major outbreak of COVID-19 at its operating sites, including at PT-FI’s remote operating site in Papua; supply of and demand for, and prices of, copper, gold and molybdenum; mine sequencing; changes in mine plans or operational modifications, delays, deferrals or cancellations; production rates; timing of shipments; results of feasibility studies; potential inventory adjustments; potential impairment of long-lived mining assets; the potential effects of violence in Indonesia generally and in the province of Papua; the Indonesia government's extension of PT-FI's export license after March 15, 2021; risks associated with underground mining; satisfaction of requirements in accordance with PT-FI's special mining license to extend mining rights from 2031 through 2041; the Indonesia government's approval of a deferred schedule for completion of the new smelter in Indonesia; expected results from improvements in operating procedures and technology, including innovation initiatives; industry risks; regulatory changes; political and social risks; labor relations, including labor-related work stoppages; weather- and climate-related risks; environmental risks; litigation results; cybersecurity incidents; changes in general market, economic and industry conditions; financial condition of FCX’s customers, suppliers, vendors, partners and affiliates, particularly during weak economic conditions and extended periods of volatile commodity prices; reductions in liquidity and access to capital; FCX’s ability to comply with its responsible production commitments under specific frameworks and any changes to such frameworks; and other factors described in more detail under the heading “Risk Factors” in FCX's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2020, June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2020, each filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), as updated by FCX's subsequent filings with the SEC.
Investors are cautioned that many of the assumptions upon which FCX's forward-looking statements are based are likely to change after the forward-looking statements are made, including for example commodity prices, which FCX cannot control, and production volumes and costs, some aspects of which FCX may not be able to control. Further, FCX may make changes to its business plans that could affect its results. FCX cautions investors that it does not intend to update forward-looking statements more frequently than quarterly notwithstanding any changes in its assumptions, changes in business plans, actual experience or other changes, and FCX undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.
This press release also includes forward-looking statements regarding mineralized material not included in proven and probable
mineral reserves. Mineralized material is a mineralized body that has been delineated by appropriately spaced drilling and/or underground
sampling to support the estimated tonnage and average metal grades. Such a deposit cannot qualify as recoverable proven and probable
reserves until legal and economic feasibility are confirmed based upon a comprehensive evaluation of development costs, unit costs, grades,
recoveries and other material factors. Accordingly, no assurance can be given that the estimated mineralized material not included in reserves
will become proven and probable reserves.
    This press release also contains certain financial measures such as adjusted net income and unit net cash costs per pound of copper and molybdenum, which are not recognized under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. As required by SEC Regulation G, reconciliations of these measures to amounts reported in FCX's consolidated financial statements are in the supplemental schedules of this press release.

Freeport-McMoRan Inc.
Income Taxes (continued)
a.Represents income from continuing operations before income taxes and equity in affiliated companies' net earnings.
b.In addition to FCX's North America mining operations, the U.S. jurisdiction reflects corporate-level expenses, which include interest expense associated with senior notes, general and administrative expenses, and environmental obligations and shutdown costs.
c.The fourth quarter and year 2019 include a tax credit of $29 million associated with adjustments to the calculation of transition tax related to U.S. tax reform. The year 2019 also includes tax credits of $24 million, associated with state law changes and the settlement of state income tax examinations.
d.The fourth quarter and year 2019 include a tax charge of $53 million associated with the sale of FCX's interest in the lower zone of the Timok exploration project in Serbia.
e.The fourth-quarter and year 2020 include tax charges at Cerro Verde of $15 million ($8 million net of noncontrolling interest) primarily associated with adjustments to profit sharing for prior years.
f.In accordance with applicable accounting rules, FCX adjusts its interim provision for income taxes equal to its consolidated tax rate.
g.The year 2020 includes tax credits of $53 million associated with the reversal of the tax charge discussed in footnote d above and $6 million associated with the removal of a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.
h.The year 2020 includes tax charges of $21 million ($17 million net of noncontrolling interests) associated with establishing a tax reserve related to the treatment of prior year contractor support costs and $8 million ($7 million net of noncontrolling interest) associated with an unfavorable 2012 Indonesia Supreme Court ruling.
i.The year 2019 includes a tax charge of $5 million ($4 million net of noncontrolling interest) primarily for non-deductible penalties related to PT-FI's surface water tax settlement.
j.The year 2019 includes net tax charges totaling $49 million ($15 million net of noncontrolling interests) primarily to adjust deferred taxes on historical balance sheet items in accordance with tax accounting principles.
k.FCX's consolidated effective income tax rate is a function of the combined effective tax rates for the jurisdictions in which FCX operates, excluding the U.S. jurisdiction.
    Assuming achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates and average prices of $3.50 per pound for copper, $1,850 per ounce for gold and $9.00 per pound for molybdenum, FCX estimates its consolidated effective tax rate for the year 2021 would approximate 35 percent. Changes in projected sales volumes and average prices during 2021 would incur tax impacts at estimated effective rates of 38 percent for Indonesia, 39 percent for Peru and 0 percent for the U.S.
    Variations in the relative proportions of jurisdictional income result in fluctuations to FCX's consolidated effective income tax rate. Because of FCX's U.S. tax position, it does not record a financial statement impact for income or losses generated in the U.S.

DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS
    For the year 2020, FCX's mined copper was sold 51 percent in concentrate, 28 percent as cathode and 21 percent as rod from North America operations. Substantially all of FCX's copper concentrate and cathode sales contracts provide final copper pricing in a specified future month (generally one to four months from the shipment date) based primarily on quoted London Metal Exchange (LME) monthly average copper prices. FCX records revenues and invoices customers at the time of shipment based on then-current LME prices, which results in an embedded derivative on provisionally priced concentrate and cathode sales that is adjusted to fair value through earnings each period, using the period-end forward prices, until final pricing on the date of settlement. LME copper settlement prices averaged $3.25 per pound during fourth-quarter 2020 and settled at $3.51 per pound on December 31, 2020. Because a significant portion of FCX's copper concentrate and cathode sales in any quarterly period usually remain subject to final pricing, the quarter-end forward price is a major determinant of the average recorded copper price for the period. FCX's average realized copper price was $3.40 per pound in fourth-quarter 2020.

    Following is a summary of the adjustments to prior period and current period provisionally priced copper sales (in millions, except per share amounts):

b.Reflects adjustments to provisionally priced copper sales for the years 2020 and 2019.
    At December 31, 2020, FCX had provisionally priced copper sales at its copper mining operations totaling 320 million pounds of copper (net of intercompany sales and noncontrolling interests) recorded at an average price of $3.52 per pound, subject to final pricing over the next several months. FCX estimates that each $0.05 change in the price realized from the December 31, 2020, provisional price would have an approximate $10 million effect on 2021 net income attributable to common stock. The LME copper price settled at $3.62 per pound on January 25, 2021.

DEFERRED PROFITS
    FCX defers recognizing profits on sales from its mining operations to Atlantic Copper and on 25 percent of PT-FI's sales to PT Smelting (PT-FI's 25 percent-owned Indonesia smelting unit) until final sales to third parties occur. Changes in these deferrals attributable to variability in intercompany volumes resulted in net additions (reductions) to operating income totaling $20 million ($20 million to net income attributable to common stock) in fourth-quarter 2020, $1 million ($2 million to net income attributable to common stock) in fourth-quarter 2019, $(7) million ($1 million to net income attributable to common stock) for the year 2020 and $(22) million ($(18) million to net loss attributable to common stock) for the year 2019. FCX's net deferred profits on its inventories at Atlantic Copper and PT Smelting to be recognized in future periods' net income attributable to common stock totaled $54 million at December 31, 2020. Quarterly variations in ore grades, the timing of intercompany shipments and changes in product prices will result in variability in FCX's net deferred profits and quarterly earnings.

BUSINESS SEGMENTS
    FCX has organized its mining operations into four primary divisions – North America copper mines, South America mining, Indonesia mining and Molybdenum mines, and operating segments that meet certain thresholds are reportable segments. Separately disclosed in the following tables are FCX's reportable segments, which include the Morenci, Cerro Verde and Grasberg (Indonesia Mining) copper mines, the Rod & Refining operations and Atlantic Copper Smelting & Refining.
At year-end 2020, Bagdad did not meet the quantitative thresholds of a reportable segment. As a result, FCX revised its segment disclosure for the years ended December 31, 2019, to conform with the current year presentation.
    Intersegment sales between FCX’s business segments are based on terms similar to arms-length transactions with third parties at the time of the sale. Intersegment sales may not be reflective of the actual prices ultimately realized because of a variety of factors, including additional processing, the timing of sales to unaffiliated customers and transportation premiums.
    FCX allocates certain operating costs, expenses and capital expenditures to its operating divisions and individual segments. However, not all costs and expenses applicable to an operation are allocated. U.S. federal and state income taxes are recorded and managed at the corporate level (included in Corporate, Other & Eliminations), whereas foreign income taxes are recorded and managed at the applicable country level. In addition, most mining exploration and research activities are managed on a consolidated basis, and those costs along with some selling, general and administrative costs, are not allocated to the operating divisions or individual segments. Accordingly, the following segment information reflects management determinations that may not be indicative of what the actual financial performance of each operating division or segment would be if it was an independent entity.

PRODUCT REVENUES AND PRODUCTION COSTS

Unit net cash costs per pound of copper and molybdenum are measures intended to provide investors with information about the cash-generating capacity of FCX's mining operations expressed on a basis relating to the primary metal product for the respective operations. FCX uses this measure for the same purpose and for monitoring operating performance by its mining operations. This information differs from measures of performance determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures are presented by other metals mining companies, although FCX's measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
    FCX presents gross profit per pound of copper in the following tables using both a “by-product” method and a “co-product” method. FCX uses the by-product method in its presentation of gross profit per pound of copper because (i) the majority of its revenues are copper revenues, (ii) it mines ore, which contains copper, gold, molybdenum and other metals, (iii) it is not possible to specifically assign all of FCX's costs to revenues from the copper, gold, molybdenum and other metals it produces and (iv) it is the method used by FCX's management and Board of Directors to monitor FCX's mining operations and to compare mining operations in certain industry publications. In the co-product method presentations, shared costs are allocated to the different products based on their relative revenue values, which will vary to the extent FCX's metals sales volumes and realized prices change.
    FCX shows revenue adjustments for prior period open sales as a separate line item. Because these adjustments do not result from current period sales, these amounts have been reflected separately from revenues on current period sales. Noncash and other costs, which are removed from site production and delivery costs in the calculation of unit net cash costs, consist of items such as stock-based compensation costs, long-lived asset impairments, idle facility costs, restructuring and/or unusual charges. As discussed above, gold, molybdenum and other metal revenues at copper mines are reflected as credits against site production and delivery costs in the by-product method. The following schedules are presentations under both the by-product and co-product methods together with reconciliations to amounts reported in FCX's consolidated financial statements.
