A Rosemont Warning

Posted By on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 at 10:00 AM

If you don't already have tickets to tomorrow night's screening of investigative reporter John Dougherty's Cyanide Beach, you're out of luck: There are no more tickets left to the 23-minute film about the environmental disaster left behind from an Italian gold mine, which was operated by some of the key players with Augusta Resource Corp., the parent company of Rosemont Copper, which plans on opening a massive open-pit in the Santa Rita Mountains.

But if you'd still like to see the film, Dougherty has scheduled a second showing at 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27, at the Crossroads Festival theater at Grant and Swan roads. Here's how you get a free ticket.

From Dougherty's InvestigativeMEDIA's website:


The same Canadian mining speculators that are now seeking government permits to blast a mile-wide, half-mile deep hole in the Santa Rita Mountains and dump waste rock and mine tailings on more than 3,000 acres of the Coronado National Forest once owned and operated an open-pit gold mine in Sardinia.

What happened near the iconic Sardinian farming town of Furtei provides crucial insight into what could happen here, in southern Arizona.

InvestigativeMEDIA, LLC’s 23-minute video documentary “Cyanide Beach” tells an important and timely story that anyone interested in the Rosemont copper mine project needs to know.


Tony Davis at the Arizona Daily Star has more on the film.
