Biological Evaluation, Baseline Hydrologic & Geotechnical Data Gathering Activities on Tonto National Forest
The Biological Evaluation (BE) supports the proposed baseline hydrologic and geotechnical testing and monitoring activities (the Proposed Action). The Proposed Action would occur on National Forest System lands located within Tonto National Forest (TNF) and would inform Resolution’s baseline environmental studies and data gathering to further the understanding of hydrology, geochemistry and geotechnical conditions over an area covering a range of potential alternative sites for tailings.
