Rosemont Mine Battle Continues

Posted By on Tue, Jan 13, 2009 at 12:02 AM

According to an e-mail from Save the Scenic Santa Ritas--the folks leading the opposition to the Rosemont Mine--the mediation processes headed by Carie Fox and the Morris K. Udall Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution have been disbanded. Evidently, Fox believes there was little room for mediation, and the SSSR folks agree.

But there remains plenty of room for public involvement "in the analysis of the scoping comments."

In that vein, the SSSR folks co-authored a proposal to the Coronado National Forest (CNF) "suggesting an alternative framework for public involvement, which has been sent to Jeanine Derby of the CNF."

SSSR is holding a public meeting TODAY to discuss the proposal, as well as "strategies for working toward stopping the mine and to air concerns. All who have been involved in the effort to stop the proposed Rosemont Mine are invited."

The meeting is TODAY: Tuesday, Jan. 13, at 7 p.m., at Corona Fire Station #1, 99 Tallahassee St. (one street south of Sahuarita Road, just east of Houghton Road).

Any questions? E-mail Kim Beck, SSSR coordinator, at kim@scenicsantaritas.org, or call her at 495-4339.
