Golder Associates

This tech memo presents the first update of the Groundwater Assessment prepared by Golder Associates on behalf of Resolution Copper Mining.  This work is required as part of the Area-Wide Aquifer Protection Permit for the West Plant Site.  Specifically, this tech memo partially fulfills APP Compliance Schedule Item (CSI) No. 2.

Resolution Copper Company commissioned Golder and Associates to establish a program for the collection of baseline surface water data near the future RCC mine and associated facilities.  The intended uses of the data are primarily to support and EIS, develop a sound conceptual site model as a basis for predicting future impacts, and document current conditions as a baseline for judging future impacts.
