We Take the Rosemont Mine Tour

Posted By on Thu, Aug 5, 2010 at 2:59 PM

This week in our Currents section, Tim Vanderpool writes about Chiricahua leopard frogs near the proposed Rosemont Mine site. Along with the online version of the story, you can see a video of our recent tour of the planned copper mine in the Santa Rita mountains, about 30 miles southeast of town.

Officials at Rosemont offer periodic (and free) tours of the area, as well as a lengthy briefing on everything you could possibly want to know about copper mining. Call (520) 975-6110 to reserve a spot.
