At six volumes, the final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) describes the potential environmental effects from two proposed actions:
- A general plan of operations for development of a large-scale underground copper mine by Resolution Copper Mining, LLC.
- A related, legislatively-mandated land exchange
The document analyzes several alternatives to the proposed action submitted by Resolution Copper to the Tonto. The FEIS identifies Alternative 6 – Skunk Camp as the Preferred Alternative. It also identifies mitigation measures, both required and voluntary, that would minimize, reduce, or offset impacts from the proposed project.
