Re: “Rosemont Mine Put on Hold By Hudbay Minerals

Great comments. Let me not mince words- I am no democrat or socialist, been in Tucson 40 years, below the poverty line, would not work for a mining company for any reason, and proud of it. My problem with this is that the mine does not own the land they intend to dump on. I love my oil, water copper, air and soil. I use them. I don't care about 500 people having a job for 10 (or 20 or 50 years), to be left with a poisoned aquifer, blowing heavy metals, and acid tailings pools that will ruin the immediate area for thousands of years, in spite of any bears or ocelots that may pass through deeming it a " healthy recovered ecosystem". If they own ALL of the land they intend to use, and are paying a teared water bill like the rest of us, whereby the price goes up with usage, and can prove that the water and air will not be impacted beyond their property, then great, mine away. If we are supposed to pay taxes to preserve land that gets traded away to be dumped on and destroyed, and buy into the "good for the whole community" idea while we pay and hudbay collects, no dice, try again. Not even about the environment, more a private property rights issue.
