Resolution Copper Receives Rocky Mountain Mining Institute Safety Award For Second Year In A Row
Superior, AZ – Resolution Copper accepted the Rocky Mountain Mining Institute’s (RMMI) 2023 Safety Award for Small Underground Mine. For the second year in a row, Resolution Copper is identified as the safest among its mining peers across the eight-state RMMI region, including Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, Montana, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.
“Safety is our top priority at Resolution Copper and we are thrilled to be twice-recognized for our commitment to ensuring the well-being of all employees throughout our operational processes,” said Vicky Peacey, President and General Manager at Resolution Copper. “We look forward to upholding this commitment to safety as we continue to progress this critical project for the United States.”
Eligibility for the prestigious award was determined by a review of mining companies’ production incident data over the past calendar year, including Non-Fatal Days Lost (NFDL) and No Days Lost (NDL) rates as reported to the U.S Department of Labor Mine Safety and Health Administration.
“Resolution Copper continues to demonstrate its excellent safety record and should be applauded for winning the award back-to-back years,” said Judy Colgan, Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Mining Institute.
Once operational, Resolution Copper will be capable of producing up to 25% of U.S. copper demand each year. Resolution Copper will also deliver significant economic growth to nearby communities and the state of Arizona by providing thousands of jobs, billions in tax revenue, and increased spending in rural Arizona over the course of the project’s 60-year lifespan.
