Augusta Resources just announced that it has received the Air Quality Permit for its Rosemont Copper project [right, credit Rosemont Copper] in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson, from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality ("ADEQ"). According to the announcement, the Air Quality Permit stipulates the operating, monitoring and reporting parameters that Rosemont must comply with to meet all federal, state and local air quality requirements.
The company says that "the Rosemont has now received seven major permits required to commence construction. Only one major permit is remaining, the Clean Water Act Section 404 Permit from the US Army Corp of Engineers, which the Company expects to receive upon the issuance of the Record of Decision ("ROD") on the Plan of Operations from the U.S. Forest Service."
