Porphyry deposits are concentrated in the Southwest Pacific as well as the orogenic belts across the west coast of North and South America. The most well-known example of a copper porphyry hotspot is Chile, the world’s leading copper producer. Globally, the largest copper mine is BHP-Billiton’s (ASX:BHP) and Rio Tinto’s Escondida mine, which has been in production since the late 1990s. The mine, which is based on a copper porphyry deposit located in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile, accounts for a whopping 5 percent of the world’s total copper output.
