In the good old days, you could count on your neighbor to lend a hand in a time of need. Neighbors still lend a hand, but sometimes it takes a formal document to finalize it.
Resolution Copper Company wants to make sure that it is a good neighbor. Earlier this month, RCC signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Queen Valley Fire District to provide emergency response and planning to RCC’s mining sites adjacent to Superior. The MOU is good for five years.
On July 15, RCC presented a donation of $25,000 to the small fire district.
“This money comes to our District at a very critical time win revenues are at an all time low due to declining property taxes making it very hard to maintain Fire District operations.
“The Queen Valley Fire District looks forward to a long standing partnership with Resolution Copper and appreciate Resolution Copper’s trust in our Fire District to provide the mine with emergency services,” the fire district said in a press release.
