Thank you for visiting the Rosemont Copper Project Environmental Impact Statement website. We hope this site provides the information necessary for to understand the project under consideration and the associated analysis.
The project being considered is an open-pit mine that affects lands managed by the Coronado National Forest, roughly 30 miles south of Tucson, Arizona. Rosemont Copper Company submitted a proposal to extract locatable minerals such as copper, molybdenum, and silver from an approximate 955-acre pit (two thirds of which are on lands owned by Rosemont Copper Company). Ore processing, waste rock, and tailings are proposed to be located on approximately 3,330 acres of National Forest System lands.
