SANTIAGO, March 27 (Reuters) - World No. 1 copper producer Codelco produced 1.672 million tonnes of copper in full-year 2014, a 3.1 percent rise from a year earlier, the Chilean state-run company said on Friday.

Pre-tax profit fell 22 percent to $3.033 billion, dragged down by falling copper prices.
