This is the Final Record of Decision (ROD) of the Coronado National Forest response to the mine plan of operations (MPO) submitted for the Rosemont Copper Project. The Final ROD documents the decision of the Forest Supervisor, along with the rationale for the decision and alternatives considered in reaching the decision. The Final ROD includes a discussion of preferences among alternatives based on relevant factors and how those factors were considered in reaching the decision, as well as mitigation and monitoring measures that are required by this decision. The Final ROD also documents changes and additions to the MPO deemed necessary by the Coronado. The Final ROD also includes a decision to amend the 1986 “Coronado National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan” (referred to as the “forest plan”), which will create a new forest management area (MA) for which specific standards and guidelines will be established relative to a large-scale mining operation.
