Families on the front lines of mining, drilling, and fracking need your help. Support them now!

Earthworks, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization focused on the environmental and social impacts of the mining and oil and gas industries, wishes to thank the Tonto National Forest (TNF) for the opportunity to submit scoping comments for the Resolution Copper Mine Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).  We are confident that our comments will best reflect the concerns of our 1000+ members who reside in Arizona and who will be impacted by the construction, operation, and post-closure challenges of the Resolution Copper Mine, as proposed. As the Forest Service prepares to take a hard look at the impacts of the mine plan, and begins to analyze potential alternatives to mitigate environmental and social impacts, we are optimistic that our comments will be taken into consideration in a meaningful way as a DEIS is being written.
