This movie illustrates the detailed plan of operations for the life of the mine, including reclamation that begins on Day 1. Rosemont will recharge the groundwater it uses, and already has water stored ahead. The reclamation plan must be guaranteed, with bonds, prior to receiving any permits to operate.
The first stages of a State-of-the-art greenhouse study, commissioned by Rosemont Copper and undertaken by Dr. Jeffrey Fehmi of the University of Arizona School of Natural Resources, have been completed.
The studies were performed for the purpose of identifying optimum plant species for revegetation.
As part of the revegetation efforts, Rosemont has established a 30,000 acre working ranch that is committed to natural, non-confined ranching techniques.
Rosemont cattle will be raised in enviromentally friendly conditions with no hormones, no antibiotics and they will be completely range fed.
