9th Circuit Ruling Statement

“We understand that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has decided to rehear the case brought by Apache Stronghold. We respect the legal process and will await the 9th Circuit Court’s decision. At the same time, we believe that settled precedent supports the district court’s rejection of Apache Stronghold’s claims.”  

“There is significant local support for the Resolution Copper project, and we will continue our efforts to understand, address, and mitigate the concerns raised by others. As we build on the significant consultation undertaken over the past decade, the ongoing dialogue with local communities and Tribes continues to shape the project, the benefits it can provide, and the management of cultural heritage.”
