Please act now to protect Oak Flat.
NEWS FLASH: We have just learned that The Tonto National Forest plans to publish the FEIS on January 15. You can help turn this date back by contacting the Forest Service Chief.
It is clear that the US Forest Service is bowing to political pressure to expedite the publishing of a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on Resolution Copper’s proposal to destroy Oak Flat and thousands of additional acres of precious land to build a huge underground copper mine. The motivation for this pressure is clear – Resolution Copper and its supporters would like the land privatized while the current presidential administration is in power.
The publishing of a FEIS is critical because it would trigger a 60-day deadline to turn over Oak Flat to Resolution Copper. If the Forest Service continues its push to prematurely release the FEIS, Oak Flat could become the private property of the worlds 2 largest foreign mining companies within weeks.
Please send an email to the Chief of the Forest Service today asking her to write a new draft or supplemental Environmental Impact Statement first, instead of rushing to release an incomplete FEIS.
