Governor, Daily Star endorse Resolution Copper land swap

Support for developing the giant Resolution copper deposit got two big endorsements this past week.

Gov. Jan Brewer toured the Resolution Copper mine on Thursday [right, credit Resolution Copper] and called on Congress to push forward the land swap that is needed. The Arizona Republic quoted her as saying, "Copper has done so much over the history of Arizona to provide economic growth, and this copper project spurs economic development far into our future."

Yesterday, the Arizona Daily Star (Tucson) applauded Resolution Copper in a prominent editorial, for its "current path of openness, environmental activism and partnering with local communities" and urged the mine development to go forward. The paper said the mines "economic impact alone could be tremendously beneficial. And it's good for Southern Arizona because some of the lands that Resolution is offering in the swap are precious natural assets."
