Supporting Our Community

Superior, Arizona is more than where we work. It is our home. And we are dedicated to making the Copper Triangle a better place for all who live and work here, whether it’s supporting local businesses or giving students the tools they need to succeed. We focus our community support on causes and organizations that serve Superior, Globe, Miami, Kearny, Hayden, Winkelman and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to foster generations of success right here.

Magma Mine reclamation

Starting in 2005, we began reclaiming the old Magma Mine, once regarded as a local eyesore to the community. Resolution Copper spent $75 million over the past decade removing soil and reshaping, covering and revegetating the historic tailings. We also restored and re-established natural drainages for the conveyance of clean stormwater, reshaped and re-vegetated rock piles, and removed old structures. The project created dozens of jobs in the community, and today the Magma Mine is a safe facility that blends into the natural landscape with self-sustaining vegetation.

Helping local businesses

Resolution Copper has consistently supported local businesses and contractors We have partnered with Local First Arizona to provide small business relief grants during COVID-19, supporting local businesses in Superior. In 2020, we spent over $124 million through Arizonan businesses alone. Long-term economic growth starts with local businesses supporting one another, and at Resolution Copper we are proud to support our fellow local businesses.

Education outreach

Good education is the foundation of lifelong success. That’s why Resolution Copper has supported the Superior Unified School District for years, whether it’s donating essential technology to students for remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic or giving $1.2 million to the school district, including support for the STEM and robotics program. We offer an annual scholarship program that provides financial assistance to local students pursuing higher education while also encouraging students of promise to explore career opportunities in the mining industry and related STEM fields. In 2021, we’ve given over $35,000 in scholarships to local students. At Central Arizona College we established a three-year apprenticeship program that allowed college students to develop the skills required to safely operate and maintain assets on-site. The apprentices graduated in 2020 and now work safely in highly sought-after technical roles.

Community Partners

Since 2004, we have partnered with over 200 local organizations to support projects that benefit our community and its citizens.

Resolution Copper currently has multi-year partnerships with the Superior Unified School District, Superior Chamber of Commerce, Rebuild Superior Inc, the Town of Superior, Globe Unified School District Robotics, Queen Valley Fire Department, and the Superior Fire Department.

In 2020 and 2021, we have given over $2.3 million to assist in local community efforts. We are invested in the Copper Triangle community and want to see it succeed.
