Pima County expenditures to oppose Rosemont copper mine
Pima County has reportedly spent over $65,000 on external "studies, analyses and a three-dimensional model" of the proposed Rosemont copper mine in the Santa Rita mountains southeast of Tucson, as part of their opposition to the project, according to the Green Valley News. This does not include the salaries and other costs of the county staff assigned to fight the mine. [right, location map courtesy Rosemont Copper]
