Draft Reclamation Plan: Preferred Alternative
This Reclamation Plan has been prepared as per DEIS mitigation measure FS-226 to outline the reclamation and closure measures and establish the basis for the reclamation cost estimate and financial assurance. It is designed to return land disturbed by Resolution Copper’s mining activities to a near natural condition and ensure the site does not pose any long-term risk to the people or surrounding environment.
