Air Quality

The documents listed below are Baseline Reports categorized topically as air quality.

This Modeling Report includes a description of the methods and datasets used in the air quality modeling analyses to estimate the Resolution Project’s air quality impacts relative to the applicable Ambient Air Quality Standards (AAQS) for criteria pollutants and to Air Quality Related Values in the near-field domain.

This report summarizes meteorological measurements collected at the Resolution Copper Mine monitoring system. The purpose of the monitoring program is to provide the measurements necessary to establish existing meteorological conditions at the proposed site of the Resolution Mine in support of a future air quality permit application.

This report summarizes the meteorological, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), ozone (O3), and particulate matter (PM) data collected at the Resolution Copper Project near Superior, Arizona for the second quarter, April 1-June 30, 2015. Monitoring was performed in accordance with the Resolution Copper Mining Monitoring Plan, November 2011 (approved by the Pinal County Air Quality Control District on November 15, 2011).

Resolution Copper has collected meteorological and air quality data to support several efforts during the pre-feasibility and other mine development phases for the Resolution Copper project.  This report characterizes baseline air quality and meteorological conditions for the project site and the nearby region.

Resolution Copper Mining LLC (RCML) is overseeing a meteorological and air quality monitoring program to support several efforts during the mine development phases: environmental assessments, impact analyses, and documents required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA); meteorological and air quality data to be processed and used as input for AERMOD (American Meteorological Society/Environmental Protection Agency Regulatory Model) dispersion modeling; and air quality baseline data and AERMOD analyses in support of RCML’s application to the Pinal County Air Quality Control District
