Second-quarter 2012 consolidated molybdenum sales of 20 million pounds approximated the April 2012 estimate of 20 million pounds and second-quarter 2011 sales of 21 million pounds.Consolidated sales from mines for the year 2012 are expected to approximate 3.6 billion pounds of copper, 1.1 million ounces of gold and 81 million pounds of molybdenum, including 885 million pounds of copper, 225 thousand ounces of gold and 20 million pounds of molybdenum in third-quarter 2012. FCX's revised 2012 estimates are lower than previous estimates reported in April by approximately 85 million pounds of copper and 60 thousand ounces of gold primarily because of mine sequencing changes and slower underground ramp-up at PT Freeport Indonesia and revisions to El Abra production.
