A historic ruling overturned the approval of the Rosemont Mine, a giant copper mine proposed south of Tucson, on questionable mining claims to dump the mine’s waste rock and tailings.
.
If you’re interested in the legal story of this, highly recommending reading about this https://tucson.com/news/local/shocking-blockbuster-rosemont-mine-ruling-has-national-implications-experts-say/article_55dd98cc-128b-5105-9590-186f8c2c1e8f.html
.
When Brendan Davis and I explored this area this past winter thanks to the beta from Lydia Jennings, we were astounded at the beauty and ample recreation opportunities. We saw horseback riders, bird dog training, and tons of trail runners and hikers in the adjacent Madera Canyon. We hiked our bikes, ran, asked questions and visited the nearby Asarco copper mine, to get an idea of what the Santa Rita mountains would become. Not to mention, this area is sacred to multiple Indigenous tribes...But as with most of these battles, it comes down to the legality of the proposed mine. And the law is finally being taken into account with this case:
.
“The ruling could chill the hard-rock mining industry that has lived under a generally favorable legal climate since Congress passed the 1872 Mining Law to encourage mineral exploration of public lands.
.
“Environmental law professors say the ruling is well-grounded factually and could end a century-old practice by mining companies of skirting or dodging federal law by dumping mining wastes on federal lands without proper reviews.
.
“They say it also exposes what they see as the fallacy of having our public-lands mining governed by a law written at a time when picks and shovels were used to pull minerals from the ground.”
