The Forest Service hosted workshops to 1) update the public on the status of the EIS process 2) describe the alternatives development process, and 3) solicit input on the criteria being used to evaluate alternative tailings storage facility locations. The public provided input as to the relative importance of a variety of environmental and social criteria that the Forest Service used to evaluate alternative tailings facility locations.
The Forest Service will host its remaining two public meetings in Queen Valley on October 8 and in Tempe on October 10.
