Scoping Information

These informational posters were displayed during public meetings that occurred during the formal scoping period.

On March 18, 2016, the Notice of Intent was published in the Federal Register, initiating the scoping process for the Resolution Copper Project and Land Exchange EIS.  The Tonto National Forest Supervisor, Neil Bosworth, issued this scoping letter, inviting public participation in the scoping process.

These questions were asked and answered during the public meetings held in Queen Valley, Superior, Globe, Gilbert, and San Tan, Arizona from March - June 2016. 180 total questions and answers are recorded here in 5 categories: NEPA process, impact analysis, land exchange, mine proprosal, and general.

Public open house meetings will be held as follows. Each meeting will take place from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.; a presentation will take place at 5:30, followed by a brief question and answer period.

Publication of the NOI in the Federal Register on March 18, 2016 represents the official start of the process to prepare an EIS, as required under the National Environmental Policy Act, for approval of a plan of operations for the Resolution Copper Project and associated land exchange.
