Applied Economics was retained by Tucson Regional Economic Opportunities (TREO) to perform an economic impact analysis of the construction and operations of the Rosemont Copper Project, located in Pima County, Arizona. Applied Economics has been specifically tasked with evaluating the economic impacts that the mine would create through its direct operations, local supplier purchases and employee spending. The potential impacts of the mine on the value of public lands, the tourism industry, air and water quality, wildlife habitat, astronomical observation conditions and recreational and cultural resources are not addressed in this analysis.
