Bagdad is located in central Arizona and is home to Freeport-McMoRan’s copper mining operation, the world’s first commercial-scale concentrate leach processing facility (2003) and one of the longest continuously operating solution extraction / electrowinning (SX / EW) plants in the world (1970).
The first claims for copper were staked in Bagdad in 1882. The property changed ownership numerous times through first half of 20th century, with the first mill beginning operation in 1928 to process ore from the underground mine.
According to legend, the name “Bagdad” is not a misspelling of “Baghdad”. Supposedly a father and son operated a small-scale copper mining operation there in the late 1800s. The father dug out the ore and the son loaded it into bags.
