Welcome

Welcome! This site is the online center for public information and involvement related to the Resolution Copper Project and Land Exchange Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

Project Summary

On March 18, 2016, the Tonto National Forest issued a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS for the Resolution Copper Project and Land Exchange. Two separate but related components will be analyzed in the EIS, as well as any necessary amendments to the Tonto National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan:

  1. Approval of a plan of operations submitted to the Tonto National Forest in November 2013.
  2. Exchange of 2,422 acres of public land (known as the Oak Flat parcel) with Resolution Copper Mining, LLC (Resolution Copper), in return for 5,344 acres elsewhere in Arizona.

Full details of the proposed actions to be analyzed in the EIS can be found on the Project Information page.
