Rosemont Mine Update – Save the Scenic Santa Ritas

Dear Friends,

As you probably heard, Augusta Resource submitted their Mine Plan of Operations for Rosemont Ranch to the Forest Service on July 11, 2007. 

THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE MINE IS APPROVED!!!!  

The Forest Service now must review the plan for completeness to determine if there is enough detail to analyze the environmental impacts.  This may take 60 to 90 days, but could be sooner.  If the Forest Service decides to approve the plan, the NEPA process will begin.  This is the environmental review process and includes several opportunities for public input.

If you have not already done so, please contact the Forest Service at the address below and request to be put on the mailing list for the Rosemont Project.  You will then be notified of all public meetings and comment opportunities.
