The Tonto National Forest will use the public comments to help identify significant issues for analysis and potential project alternatives as the Forest begins preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to consider and disclose the environmental effects from:

- The exchange of land between Resolution Copper and the United States.
Resolution Copper has submitted a proposal to develop and operate an underground copper mine near Superior, Arizona. More information is available online at: https://www.resolutionmineeis.us/.
