FEIS/DROD Map Package
This compilation of maps has been extracted from the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and Draft Record of Decision (DROD) for the Resolution Copper Project, released on January 15, 2021.
These maps focus on the preferred alternative as identified in the FEIS (Alternative 6 – Skunk Camp), and those components of the project described in the DROD for which the Forest Service will authorize uses on National Forest System land: pipeline corridors, powerline corridors, and use of roads.
