The Rosemont Copper Mine is located 50km southeast of Tucson in Pima County. There is no working mine at the moment, but the property contains three open-pit mineable copper deposits: Rosemont, Peach Elgin and Broadtop Butte. The company is in the process of gathering all the required permits, but even in this early stage they started free public tours. This is a fine chnace for the locals to get an insight into the plans of the mining company, wher the mine will be, how bg, where the processing plant will be, how the reclamation will be carried out and so forth. We think thats a fine way do do public relations.
