Folks from Save the Scenic Santa Ritas (SSSR) want you to know the NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) process began this week regarding the Rosemont Mine. The group circulated a Forest Service press release announcing the process and public meetings that begin next week.

According to the press release, Coronado National Forest Supervisor Jeanine Derby submitted a Notice of Intent for publication in the Federal Register to initiate preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Rosemont Copper Project.
