Resolution Copper DEIS is Published

We need your help to protect Oak Flat!

On August 9, 2019, the Tonto National Forest release its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on Rio Tinto’s proposal to destroy Oak Flat and thousands of acres of additional public land to build a huge underground copper mine.

The public is invited to comment on the DEIS and the comment deadline is currently November 7, 2019.

We must stop this disasterous proposal and we need you, your friends, colleagues, neighbors – everyone you know – to commment on this proposal and to help us stop this mine and protect Oak Flat.

We will provide you with analysis of the DEIS and every tool you will need to help.

While we prepare the tools, take a look at the proposal (start with the executive summary) to familiarize yourself with the proposed project.

Please attend one of five meeting hosted by the Tonto National Forest to learn more and to comment.
