Forum on economic impacts of Rosemont copper mine

Rosemont Copper is hosting a forum on the economic impacts of the proposed mine on Feb. 16, with sponsorship by the Tucson Hispanic and Green Valley Chambers of Commerce, and by the mining industry group AMIGOS.

The announcement says,
Speakers will be economists Elliott Pollack and Dr. Lee McPheters, and a question and answer session will follow.

Pollack, CEO of Elliott D. Pollack and Company in Scottsdale, former chief economist for Valley National Bank in the 1970s and '80s, and a longtime member of the Joint Legislature Finance Advisory Committee, will discuss the general economic situation in the state of Arizona.
Dr. McPheters, Research Professor of Economics at Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School of Business and Director of its JP Morgan Chase Economic Outlook Center, will address a report recently released by the Arizona Department of Mines & Mineral Resources on the economic impacts the Rosemont project will have on southern Arizona. The study, conducted by the L. William Seidman Research Institute at ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business, looked at economic impacts in Cochise, Pima and Santa Cruz Counties as a single region, and assessed the effects on the State of Arizona as a whole as well as on the United States.

There is no charge for the forum to be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16, at the Viscount Suite Hotel, 4855 East Broadway. Email to attend.
