Should a new copper mine be allowed in the Santa Rita mountains south of Tucson?
This badass woman, Lydia Jennings, has jumpstarted my education about mining reclamation (her PhD focus), and about her Native Yaqui heritage and the tribe leading the opposition to the proposed Rosemont mine, the Tohono O’odham. She’s also an amazing trail runner. I’m so grateful for her example: **If you love a place at risk, with exploration and learning from others, you can become a voice for the land that can’t speak for itself.**
I’m not a copper or mining expert, but after a week of learning from some of the stakeholders of the proposed Rosemont mine, I’m convinced that a mine in the Santa Ritas would be devastating. With only one permit remaining to allow drilling into these mountains, the Rosemont mine looms over the Santa Ritas. Side note: it’s a Canadian mining company and our current Sect of Interior lobbied relentlessly for this mine. 🤦‍♀️ Sure, copper is in most of our electronics, and it’s in demand. But, is yet another copper mine necessary in Arizona?
If you live in Arizona (or anywhere), I highly recommend looking into the Rosemont mine and mining laws in general. They are archaic. This country needs progressive energy and more smart people like Lydia working towards more sustainable solutions. #NoRosemont #SantaRitas #Tucson
