The history of ARCO is really the story of two U.S. companies, Atlantic Refining and Richfield Petroleum. The older of the two by nearly 40 years, Atlantic was founded in Pennsylvania in 1866, the state where the world’s first crude oil had been discovered seven years earlier. Initially Atlantic concentrated solely on shipping and storing oil, but within a few years it got into the refining business, where it would really make a name for itself.

Mergers and acquisitions fuelled ARCO’s growth over the years. The company bought Sinclair Oil Corporation in 1969, gaining chemical plants, refineries and a large network of pipelines. It merged with mining company Anaconda in 1977 to become a broad “earth resources” company.

In 2000, ARCO joined the BP group.


ASARCO was organized in 1899 as the American Smelting And Refining Company. Originally a consolidation of a number of lead-silver smelting companies, the Company has evolved over the years into an integrated producer of copper, and other metals.

The Company is a fully integrated miner, smelter and refiner of copper in the United States. ASARCO’s domestic mines annually produce approximately 350 - 400 million pounds of copper. Significant copper mines include the Mission, Silver Bell and the Ray open-pit mines, all three in Arizona.

ASARCO has solvent extraction/electrowinning product at its Ray and Silver Bell mines in Arizona. ASARCO operates a copper smelter in Hayden, Arizona, which produces almost a half a billion pounds of anodes annually. The Company’s Amarillo Copper Refinery in Texas and the SX/EW plants at the Ray and Silver Bell mines produce about 375 million pounds of refined copper per year.

ASARCO recognizes and believes that all operations and activities of the Company should be conducted responsibly and in a manner designed to protect the health and safety of its employees, its customers, the public and the environment. ASARCO’s operations interact with the environment daily, and consideration of these concerns must be a way of life within the Company. ASARCO is committed to a responsible management of our natural resources.
