Responsible Production
2020 Climate Report. In September 2021, FCX published its updated Climate Report, available on FCX's website at fcx.com/sustainability. The updated Climate Report details the work underway across FCX's global business to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, improve energy efficiency, advance the use of renewable energy and enhance FCX's resilience to future climate-related risks. FCX announced a new 30 percent GHG emissions intensity reduction target (excluding Scope 3) for its Indonesia operations by 2030 (versus a 2018 baseline), in addition to FCX's previously announced 15 percent GHG emissions intensity reduction target (excluding Scope 3) for its North America and South America copper businesses by 2030 (versus a 2018 baseline). FCX also announced its aspiration to participate in, and positively contribute to, a 2050 net zero economy. FCX's path to net zero carbon emissions will require industry-wide new technological solutions and innovation. FCX embraces these challenges and is focused on achieving meaningful progress through its internal efforts and through collaboration with industry partners. FCX is actively involved in various industry initiatives that are focused on climate, including the International Council on Mining and Metals and the International Copper Association. The updated Climate Report also reflects FCX's continued progress towards alignment with the current recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
The Copper Mark. FCX is committed to validating all of its copper producing sites with the Copper Mark. The Copper Mark is a robust assurance framework that demonstrates the copper industry's responsible production practices and contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Participating sites must complete an external assurance process to assess conformance with the Copper Mark's 32 environmental, social and governance requirements, with a goal of being awarded the Copper Mark. FCX has six sites which have been certified, with five additional sites in progress.

Consolidated Sales Volumes
Third-quarter 2021 copper sales of 1.033 billion pounds approximated the July 2021 estimate and were higher than third-quarter 2020 sales of 848 million pounds of copper, primarily reflecting the ramp-up of underground mining and the timing of shipments at PT-FI.
Third-quarter 2021 gold sales of 402 thousand ounces were 12 percent higher than the July 2021 estimate of 360 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting higher ore grades and recovery rates. Third-quarter 2021 gold sales were higher than third-quarter 2020 sales of 234 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting the ramp-up of underground mining and the timing of shipments at PT-FI.
Third-quarter 2021 molybdenum sales of 20 million pounds approximated the July 2021 estimate and third-quarter 2020 sales of molybdenum.
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 1.025 billion pounds of copper, 375 thousand ounces of gold and 22 million pounds of molybdenum in fourth-quarter 2021. Projected sales volumes are dependent on operational performance (including from underground mining at PT-FI), weather-related conditions, timing of shipments, and other factors detailed in the Cautionary Statement below.

Consolidated Unit Net Cash Costs
Consolidated average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for FCX's copper mines of $1.24 per pound of copper in third-quarter 2021, were lower than the July 2021 estimate of $1.33 per pound, primarily reflecting lower leach unit production costs associated with higher recoveries. Consolidated average unit net cash costs in third-quarter 2021 were lower than the third-quarter 2020 average of $1.32 per pound, primarily reflecting higher sales volumes and by-product credits, partly offset by higher maintenance and input costs.
Assuming average prices of $1,800 per ounce of gold and $19.00 per pound of molybdenum in fourth-quarter 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 $1.33 per pound of copper for the year 2021 (including $1.26 per pound of copper in fourth-quarter 2021). The impact of price changes during fourth-quarter 2021 on consolidated unit net cash costs for the year 2021 would approximate $0.015 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 achieve strong execution of operating plans. Current operations at the Lone Star copper leach project, which was completed in the second half of 2020, are exceeding the initial design capacity of 200 million pounds annually by approximately 25 percent. FCX continues to advance opportunities to increase Lone Star operating rates and is evaluating a potential additional incremental oxide expansion to increase volumes to over 300 million pounds of copper per year. The oxide project advances the opportunity for development of the large-scale sulfide resources at Lone Star. FCX is increasing exploration in the area to support metallurgical testing and mine development planning for a potential long-term investment in a concentrator.
FCX has substantial resources in the United States (U.S.), primarily associated with existing mining operations. Evaluations of project options for future growth are being advanced. In addition to Lone Star, FCX is actively evaluating permitting requirements and investments in an additional concentrator to add new capacity at its long-lived Bagdad operation, and is utilizing data analytics and testing new applications to recover additional copper from existing leach stockpiles.

FCX's consolidated copper sales volumes from North America of 375 million pounds in third-quarter 2021 approximated third-quarter 2020 copper sales volumes of 379 million pounds. North America copper sales are estimated to approximate 1.46 billion pounds for the year 2021, compared with 1.4 billion pounds for the year 2020.
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for the North America copper mines of $1.82 per pound of copper in third-quarter 2021 were higher than third-quarter 2020 unit net cash costs of $1.67 per pound, primarily reflecting higher mining and milling costs associated with the return to pre-COVID-19 operating rates and higher maintenance and input costs, partly offset by higher by-product credits and lower leach unit production costs associated with higher recoveries.
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for the North America copper mines are expected to approximate $1.85 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 $19.00 per pound in fourth-quarter 2021. North America's average unit net cash costs for the year 2021 would change by approximately $0.01 per pound for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum in fourth-quarter 2021.



5
SouthAmerica 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 third-quarter 2021, milling rates at Cerro Verde's concentrator facilities averaged 380,300 metric tons of ore per day. Subject to ongoing monitoring of COVID-19 protocols, Cerro Verde is targeting milling rates to average approximately 400,000 metric tons of ore per day in 2022.
El Abra is increasing operating rates to pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels. Stacking rates at El Abra averaged 93,100 metric tons per day in third-quarter 2021, approximately 25 percent higher than third-quarter 2020. Increased stacking rates are expected to result in incremental annual production of approximately 70 million pounds of copper beginning in mid-2022, compared with 2020 levels. A new leach pad is under construction to accommodate planned stacking rates for the next several years.
FCX continues to evaluate a large-scale expansion at El Abra to process additional sulfide material and to achieve higher copper recoveries. El Abra's large sulfide resource could potentially support a major mill project similar to facilities constructed at Cerro Verde in 2015. Technical and economic studies continue to be evaluated to determine the optimal scope and timing for the sulfide project, and FCX is engaging stakeholders and preparing data required for submission of a robust permit application. FCX is monitoring potential changes in government regulatory and fiscal matters in Chile and will defer major investment decisions pending clarity on these matters.

Copper sales from South America mining are expected to approximate 1.0 billion pounds for the year 2021, slightly higher than the year 2020.
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for South America mining of $1.90 per pound of copper in third-quarter 2021 were higher than third-quarter 2020 unit net cash costs of $1.83per pound, primarily reflecting increased milling activities, profit-sharing costs and higher maintenance and input costs, partly offset by higher sales volumes and by-product credits. Cerro Verde's collective labor agreement (CLA) expired on August 31, 2021, and as of September 30, 2021, approximately 65 percent of its hourly employees have signed new CLAs. Negotiations for new CLAs for Cerro Verde's remaining hourly employees are ongoing and may result in additional charges.
Average unit net cash costs (net of by-product credits) for South America mining are expected to approximate $2.04 per pound of copper for the year 2021, based on current sales volume and cost estimates and assuming an average price of $19.00 per pound of molybdenum in fourth-quarter 2021.
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.
PT-FI continues to operate with heightened protocols and travel restrictions designed to protect the health and safety of its workforce and the surrounding community during the COVID-19 pandemic. These measures have proven effective and have enabled PT-FI to operate reliably throughout the pandemic.
Operating and Development Activities. The ramp-up of underground production at PT-FI continues to advance on schedule. Third-quarter 2021 highlights include:
•Production approximated 90 percent of the projected ultimate annualized level and is expected to reach 100 percent by year-end 2021.
•A total of 27 new drawbells were constructed at the Grasberg Block Cave and Deep Mill Level Zone (DMLZ) underground mines, bringing cumulative open drawbells to 490.
•Combined average production from the Grasberg Block Cave and DMLZ underground mines approximated 136,200 metric tons of ore per day and PT-FI's milling rates averaged 157,400 metric tons of ore per day.
PT-FI achieved milling rates of over 177,000 metric tons of ore per day in September 2021. PT-FI expects milling rates to average approximately 175,000 metric tons of ore per day in fourth-quarter 2021 and to continue at that rate until additional milling facilities are installed in 2023, which PT-FI expects will result in mill capacity of approximately 240,000 metric tons of ore per day.
PT-FI expects to generate average annual production of 1.55 billion pounds of copper and 1.6 million ounces of gold for the next several years at an attractive unit net cash cost, providing significant margins and cash flows. For the year 2021, PT-FI production is expected to approximate 1.3 billion pounds of copper and 1.3 million ounces of gold, nearly double 2020 levels.
PT-FI's estimated annual capital spending on the Grasberg Block Cave and DMLZ underground projects is expected to average approximately $0.9 billion per year for 2021 and 2022, net of scheduled contributions from PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Persero) (PT Inalum, also known as MIND ID). 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 2021 and 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.
Kucing Liar. Following the success of the Grasberg Block Cave and DMLZ underground projects, PT-FI is planning to commence long-term mine development activities for its Kucing Liar deposit to produce approximately 6 billion pounds of copper and 6 million ounces of gold over the life of the project. Similar to PT-FI's experience with large-scale, block-cave mines, pre-production development activities will occur over an approximate 10-year timeframe. At full operating rates, annual production from Kucing Liar is expected to exceed 500 million pounds of copper and 500,000 ounces of gold, providing PT-FI with sustained long-term, large-scale and low-cost production. Capital investments for Kucing Liar over the next 10 years are expected to average approximately $400 million per annum. Kucing Liar will benefit from substantial shared infrastructure and PT-FI's experience and long-term success in block-cave mining.

Indonesia Smelter. In connection with PT-FI's 2018 agreement with the Indonesia government to secure the extension of its long-term mining rights, PT-FI committed to construct new domestic smelting capacity totaling 2 million metric tons of concentrate per year by December 2023. During 2020, PT-FI notified the Indonesia government of schedule delays resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to review with the government a revised schedule for the project.
To fulfill its obligation for new domestic smelter capacity in Indonesia, PT-FI is planning the following:
•Construction of a new greenfield smelter in Gresik, Indonesia with a capacity to process approximately 1.7 million metric tons of concentrate per year. In July 2021, PT-FI awarded a construction contract with an estimated cost of $2.8 billion. The smelter construction is expected to be completed as soon as feasible in 2024, which is subject to potential pandemic-related disruptions.
•Expansion of annual capacity at PT Smelting (PT-FI's 39.5-percent owned copper smelter and refinery in Gresik, Indonesia) by 300,000 metric tons of concentrate, a 30 percent increase. PT-FI is advancing agreements with the majority owner of PT Smelting to implement the expansion plans with a target completion date of year-end 2023. PT-FI would fund the cost of the expansion, estimated to approximate $250 million, and increase its ownership in PT Smelting to a majority ownership interest.
•Construction of a precious metals refinery (PMR) to process gold and silver from the new greenfield smelter and PT Smelting at an estimated cost of $250 million.
In July 2021, PT-FI entered into a $1 billion, five-year, unsecured bank credit facility to advance these projects. As of September 30, 2021, $158 million ($146 million net of debt issuance costs) was drawn under this facility. Additional debt financing is being evaluated to fund the projects, with the cost of debt shared 49 percent by FCX and 51 percent by PT Inalum.
Capital expenditures for the new greenfield smelter and PMR (collectively, the Indonesia smelter project) totaled $0.1 billion for the first nine months of 2021, and are expected to approximate $0.3 billion for the year 2021. Construction of the new smelter capacity would result in the elimination of export duties, providing an offset to the economic cost associated with the smelter development.

PT-FI's consolidated sales of 378 million pounds of copper and 399 thousand ounces of gold in third-quarter 2021 were higher than third-quarter 2020 consolidated sales of 219 million pounds of copper and 230 thousand ounces of gold, primarily reflecting the ramp-up of underground mining at PT-FI and the timing of shipments. 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 0.8 billion pounds of copper and 0.8 million ounces of gold for the year 2020.
Because of the fixed nature of a large portion of PT-FI's costs, unit net cash costs depend on copper and gold volumes. PT-FI's unit net cash costs (net of gold and silver credits) were $0.17 per pound of copper in third-quarter 2021 and $0.13 per pound in third-quarter 2020.
Assuming an average gold price of $1,800 per ounce in fourth-quarter 2021 and achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates, unit net cash costs (net of gold and silver credits) for PT-FI are expected to approximate $0.22per pound of copper for the year 2021. The impact of price changes during fourth-quarter 2021 on PT-FI's average unit net cash costs for the year 2021 would approximate $0.04 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 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 and at 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 totaled 9 million pounds of molybdenum in third-quarter 2021 and 6 million pounds of molybdenum in third-quarter 2020, primarily reflecting the Climax mine returning to pre-COVID-19 levels. FCX may increase rates at the Climax mine if necessary to satisfy increasing requirements for molybdenum. FCX's consolidated molybdenum sales and average realized prices, which include sales of molybdenum produced at the Molybdenum mines and at FCX's North America and South America copper mines are presented on page 3.
Higher volumes from the Molybdenum mines in third-quarter 2021 resulted in lower average unit net cash costs of $8.54 per pound of molybdenum, compared with $9.72 per pound in third-quarter 2020. Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, average unit net cash costs for the Molybdenum mines are expected to approximate $9.10 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 primarily 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 $55 million. FCX intends to increase its exploration expenditures during 2022 primarily to advance Lone Star and other opportunities at FCX's North America copper mines. FCX has long-lived reserves and a significant resource position in its existing portfolio.
CASH FLOWS, ASSET SALES, CASH AND DEBT
Operating Cash Flows. FCX generated operating cash flows of $2.0 billion (including of $0.2 billion of working capital and other sources) in third-quarter 2021 and $5.4 billion (including $0.4 billion of working capital and other sources) for the first nine months of 2021.
Based on current sales volume and cost estimates, and assuming average prices of $4.50 per pound of copper, $1,800 per ounce of gold and $19.00 per pound of molybdenum in fourth-quarter 2021, FCX's consolidated operating cash flows are estimated to approximate $7.5 billion for the year 2021. The impact of price changes during fourth-quarter 2021 on operating cash flows would approximate $100 million for each $0.10 per pound change in the average price of copper, $25 million for each $100 per ounce change in the average price of gold and $15 million for each $2 per pound change in the average price of molybdenum.


9
Capital Expenditures. Capital expenditures totaled $0.5 billion in third-quarter 2021 (including approximately $0.3 billion for major mining projects) and $1.3 billion for the first nine months of 2021 (including approximately $0.9 billion for major mining projects and $0.1 billion for the Indonesia smelter project).
Capital expenditures for the year 2021 are expected to approximate $2.3 billion ($2.0 billion excluding capital expenditures for the Indonesia smelter project), including $1.3 billion for major mining projects primarily associated with underground development activities in the Grasberg minerals district in Indonesia. Capital expenditures for the Indonesia smelter project are being funded through PT-FI's $1 billion unsecured bank credit facility.
Asset Sales. On September 1, 2021, FCX completed the sale of its specialty cobalt business based in Kokkola, Finland (Freeport Cobalt) for $208 million (including cash and other working capital and subject to post-closing adjustments), consisting of cash consideration of $173 million and 7 percent of shares in the purchaser (valued at approximately $35 million). In addition, FCX and its noncontrolling interest partners have the right to receive contingent consideration of up to $40 million based on the future performance of Freeport Cobalt. As a result of this transaction, FCX recorded a gain of $60 million ($34 million to net income attributable to common stock) in third-quarter 2021.

At September 30, 2021, FCX had no borrowings, $8 million in letters of credit issued and $3.5 billion available under its revolving credit facility.
Cerro Verde elected to prepay $200 million on its term loan at the end of September 2021, reducing the outstanding balance to $325 million, which matures in June 2022.
In July 2021, PT-FI entered into a $1 billion, five-year, unsecured bank credit facility (consisting of a $667 million term loan and a $333 million revolving credit facility). Amounts may be drawn under the term loan within the first three years, and then the loan amortizes in four installments. The revolving credit facility is available for drawings until June 2026. The facility matures in July 2026 and amounts drawn bear interest at the London Interbank Offered Rate plus a margin of 1.875% (offshore borrowings) or 2.125% (onshore borrowings).
FCX announced today that it has called for redemption all of its outstanding $524 million principal amount of its 3.55% Senior Notes due 2022. The notes will be redeemed on December 1, 2021, at a redemption price equal to 100 percent of the principal amount of the notes outstanding, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the redemption date. Annual interest costs associated with the 3.55% Senior Notes approximate $19 million. FCX has no other senior note maturities until March 2023.

FINANCIAL POLICY
In February 2021, the Board adopted a financial policy for the allocation of cash flows aligned with FCX's strategic objectives of maintaining a strong balance sheet and increasing cash returns to shareholders while advancing opportunities for future growth.
The policy includes a base dividend of $0.30 per share per year and a performance-based payout framework whereby up to 50 percent of available cash flows generated after planned capital spending and distributions to noncontrolling interests would be allocated to shareholder returns and the balance to debt reduction and investments in value enhancing growth projects. Available cash flows for performance-based payout distributions in excess of the base dividend will be assessed by the Board at least annually. FCX has achieved its targeted net debt level of $3 billion to $4 billion and expects its Board to determine additional cash returns to shareholders following reporting of FCX's 2021 annual results.
On September 22, 2021, FCX declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per share on its common stock, which will be paid on November 1, 2021, to shareholders of record as of October 15, 2021. The declaration of dividends is at the discretion of the Board and will depend upon FCX's financial results, cash requirements, future prospects and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.

Freeport-McMoRan Inc.
INCOME TAXES (continued)

h.The first nine months of 2020 include tax credits of $53 million associated with the reversal of a year-end 2019 tax charge related to the sale of FCX's interest in the lower zone of the Timok exploration project in Serbia and $6 million associated with the removal of a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.
i.FCX's U.S. jurisdiction generated net losses for the first nine months of 2020 that did not result in a realized tax benefit; applicable accounting rules required FCX to adjust its estimated annual effective tax rate to exclude the impact of U.S. net losses.
Assuming achievement of current sales volume and cost estimates and average prices of $4.50 per pound for copper, $1,800 per ounce for gold and $19.00 per pound for molybdenum in fourth-quarter 2021, FCX estimates its consolidated effective tax rate for the year 2021 would approximate 30 percent. Changes in projected sales volumes and average prices during 2021 would incur tax impacts at estimated effective rates of 40 percent for Peru, 38 percent for Indonesia and 0 percent for the U.S.

NET DEBT
Net debt, which FCX defines as consolidated debt less consolidated cash and cash equivalents, is intended to provide investors with information related to the performance-based payout framework in FCX's financial policy, which requires achievement of a net debt target in the range of $3 billion to $4 billion (excluding project debt for additional smelting capacity in Indonesia). This information differs from consolidated debt determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated debt determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. FCX's net debt, which may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies follows (in millions):
As of September 30, 2021 As of December 31, 2020

Net debt $ 1,993 $ 6,054
a.Includes $146 million, net of debt issuance costs, for the PT-FI Term Loan.

DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS
For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, FCX's mined copper was sold 60 percent in concentrate, 19 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 $4.25 per pound during third-quarter 2021 and settled at $4.10 per pound on September 30, 2021. 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 $4.20 per pound in third-quarter 2021.

a.Reflects adjustments to provisionally priced copper sales at December 31, 2021 and 2020.
b.Reflects adjustments to provisionally priced copper sales for the first nine months of 2021 and 2020.
At September 30, 2021, FCX had provisionally priced copper sales at its copper mining operations totaling 313 million pounds of copper (net of intercompany sales and noncontrolling interests) recorded at an average price of $4.05 per pound, subject to final pricing over the next several months. FCX estimates that each $0.05 change in the price realized from the quarter-end provisional price would have an approximate $10 million effect on 2021 net income attributable to common stock. The LME copper price settled at $4.61 per pound on October 20, 2021.

DEFERRED PROFITS
FCX defers recognizing profits on sales from its mining operations to Atlantic Copper and on 39.5 percent of PT-FI's sales to PT Smelting (PT-FI's 39.5 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 $41 million ($48 million to net income attributable to common stock) in third-quarter 2021 and$(21) million ($(21) million to net income attributable to common stock) in third-quarter 2020, $(144) million ($(97) million to net income attributable to common stock) for the first nine months of 2021 and $(27) million ($(20) million to net loss attributable to common stock) for the first nine months of 2020. 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 $156 million at September 30, 2021. 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. Based on current estimates, FCX does not expect a significant change in its net deferred profits in fourth-quarter 2021.

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.
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.

Freeport-McMoRan Inc.
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.
