Resolution Copper Hosts Open House

By Mila Besich-Lira

Last week Resolution Copper hosted a community wide open house to update the public on the project. This event was much more like a science fair than just an informational open house. Various stations throughout the event gave event goers the opportunity to learn more about each department at Resolution and the stations highlighted specific issues such as water usage, subsidence, safety and geology.

Picture boards and videos were available to bring the views from underground to and throughout the mine property to the public. At the safety booth various safety equipment was on hand for people to try on. The core sampling booth representative explained the age of the Apache Leap and how copper was formed in the area millions of years ago.

Other departments such as human resources were also on hand to explain the hiring process at Resolution or how to apply with other contractors.

The event did not have any official speeches or comments from company officials. The open house hosted was rescheduled from the earlier this summer when the event was postponed due to the 257 fires near Superior.

There has been no significant progress in Congress on the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act.
