Current Status

In January 2021, the USFS published a Final EIS that addresses the public’s comments and any changes made, six months behind the target date in its original project schedule set in 2015. The USDA directed the USFS to rescind the FEIS in March 2021 to allow the agency to undertake a further review. During this time Resolution Copper continues to consult and partner with local communities and Native American Tribes to guide further shaping of the Resolution Copper project and the significant benefits it will deliver.

Once the Final EIS is republished and the Record of Decision (ROD) is released, the public has 45 days to object to the decision, and the USFS must respond and address any concerns within 90 days. Once this period is complete, and we receive a Final ROD and the USFS can issue a final approved plan of operations.

Only after we receive final approval, and dozens of additional permits, can the Resolution Copper project move forward and begin producing copper.

As we look to the future, copper is key to climate action and a low-carbon world. We believe we can make a positive contribution to this new world; not only by providing natural resources but also by delivering social benefits in terms of employment and economic opportunities and taking care to avoid or lessen impacts on the environment, culture, and heritage.
