Will choice of President affect Resolution Copper mine?
Mining columnist Jack Caldwell [right], posted a piece today saying that the Resolution Copper mine will have a better chance of being developed if John McCain becomes president. This is apparently extrapolated from the fact that Sen. McCain and fellow senator John Kyl of Arizona, last year introduced legislation in Congress for the land exchange that Resolution needs to go forward.
The land exchange is supported by Gov. Napolitano and a variety of local, environmental, and recreational groups. It is opposed by the San Carlos Apache Tribe.
