TUCSON - Rosemont Copper is one permit away from starting construction on a new mine just south of Tucson.
The operation secured an Air Quality Permit from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality Thursday.
To date, Rosemont has received seven major permits required to begin the mine. The remaining permit, the Clean Water Act Section 404, is the last step to the contructions process.
"Having received one of the last permits remaining represents a major achievement for the Rosemont Copper projec," Gil Clausen, the president and CEO of Augusta said.
The permit will be available for viewing online at the ADEQ's website later Thursday.
