Arizona State Land Commissioner scheduled to speak at Community Working Group Meeting in Superior

Arizona State Land Commissioner Vanessa Hickman and Deputy Commissioner Jim Adams are scheduled to speak at a meeting of the Superior Community Working Group on Wednesday, June 18. The Community Working Group has invited the commissioners to speak about Arizona State Trust Land issues relative to the proposed Resolution Copper mining project. An area of State Trust Land has been suggested as a possible future mine tailings site.

The Arizona State Land Department manages approximately 9.2 million acres of State Trust lands within Arizona. These lands were granted to the state under the provisions of the federal Enabling Act that provided for Arizona’s statehood in 1912. These lands are held in trust and managed for the sole purpose of generating revenues for the 13 State Trust land beneficiaries, the largest of which is Arizona’s K-12 education.

The Community Working Group (CWG) is made up of Town of Superior and area residents and stakeholders who meet regularly to consider and discuss facts and issues surrounding the proposed Resolution Copper Mining Project. CWG meetings are held at the Superior Chamber of Commerce offices at 165 West Main in Superior beginning at 6 p.m. CWG meetings are open to the public and time is reserved on the agenda for public comment and questions.

Past CWG meeting agendas, summaries and information are available for public review at the Superior Chamber of Commerce offices and at the Superior Public Library at 99 North Kellner Ave., and online at resolutioncopper.com/sustainable-development/community/.
