Help Save the Scenic Santa Ritas

Augusta Resources Corporation, a Canadian mining company attempting to develop an open pit copper mine in the Rosemont Valley, Santa Rita Mountains just south of Tucson, has submitted their Mining Plan of Operations to the Coronado National Forest. The draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been released and the NEPA process and the public participation process have begun. Please make sure you are on the Forest Service's list to be contacted for any public comment opportunities regarding this mine.
