Mining Report Compiled by Mila Lira Copper was being sold at $3.37 a pound at press time. The price has remained steady over the past few weeks. The Mining report in a minute: Asarco and Road Machinery introduced the first Komatsu 930E Truck at their Mission

Mine near Tucson. The new trucks will allow for larger payloads. There was no official word that the trucks would be used at the Ray Pit. Rosemont received a necessary air quality permit from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.

Letter to the Editor: Rios is an ethical Supervisor Editor: Recently I received calls from two members of the Pinal County Sheriff’s office. The Pinal County Web site refers to them as being in key leadership positions within Babeu’s top management team in the Sheriffs office. They were not simply line staff offering an opinion. These calls were from two high ranking county employees soliciting votes for Mary Bateman Espinoza for Board of Supervisors Dist. 1. It was evident that Mary Bateman Espinoza had already sold her vote to Babeu. The only person who will benefit from her being elected is Babeu, not the employees of the Sheriffs office or the citizens of Pinal County. This is unethical and completely invalidates the whole point of democracy. Having lived in Pinal County for most of my life, it is near and dear to my heart. I have know Peter Rios for all of the time he has served the citizens of this county and there have been times when we did not agree but in the end he always did what is best for the citizens of Pinal County. He is honest, ethical and has never sold a vote for his own benefit. With 5 supervisors, each will be advocating for their area, Pinal County will need a strong advocate for Dist. 1, not a weak single issue Supervisor. /s/Virginia Rivera Coolidge

Florence passes ordinance banning sulfuric acid in mines By Chase Kamp Southeast Valley Ledger At its regular meeting on Aug. 6, 2012, the Florence Town Council passed an ordinance banning in-situ mining and other operations that use large amounts of sulfuric acid. The ordinance classifies the use of sulfuric acid as a nuisance, arguing the chemical poses a danger to residents. The measure is in reaction to Curis Resources and its proposed Florence Copper Project, which utilizes an in-situ mining process involving the injection of a diluted sulfuric acid solution into underground copper-bearing zones. According to Curis, the in-situ copper recovery solution is 99.7 percent water and one-third of 1 percent sulfuric acid by volume. The solution is injected about 400 to 1,200 feet below the surface, where it dissolves the

copper ore and is then extracted back to the surface. The ordinance is only the most recent move by the Town in opposition to the Florence Copper Project. The Council previously voted against a General Plan amendment proposed by Curis in Nov. 2011. Rita Maguire, senior legal and government affairs advisor for Curis Resources, argued sulfuric acid is a common substance used by a wide variety of businesses. “This product is being transported by trucks and trains traveling through Florence every day,” Maguire wrote. Maguire’s statement said the ordinance was “special legislation” targeted only at Curis and was a violation of equal protection laws. “The town, by this action, is attempting to take private property unfairly and under a thin pretext,” she wrote.

Florence Deputy Town Manager Jess Knudson argued the law applies to in-situ mining or any other business, with an exception for agricultural uses that uses large quantities of sulfuric acid. “While this law affects Curis Resources LTD., the law does not solely affect their business,” Knudson said. He said the town was confident about the ordinance “as means to protect the health, safety and welfare of our residents.” The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is currently evaluating the Florence Copper Project’s application for a temporary aquifer protection permit. If granted, the permit would allow a pilot test project to proceed on a small portion of Arizona State Trust land. ADEQ officials said many of its requirements for such

permits have overlap with federal Environmental Protection Agency regulations. Maguire said the copper project will be thoroughly vetted and evaluated by

independent governmental agencies. “All operations will be conducted with the utmost regard for the health, safety, and welfare of the community,” Maguire

wrote. “The thorough evaluation process and review must take precedence over any local interference in the state and federal agencies’ regulatory decisions.”

Change of leadership coming for Eastern Pinal County School Boards The Pinal County School Superintendent’s Office last week released the names of the candidates for open seats on several school district governing boards for the whole county. Of the districts in the Copper Corridor, only the Oracle School District and the Ray School District will have names on the ballots. All other districts will most likely have the candidates approved directly by the County School Superintendent since there are no contested races. For Oracle School District, five candidates have filed to run for the open three seats. Incumbents Alicia Bristow and Betty Harmon, both of Oracle, will face off with SaddleBrooke residents Linda

Thomas and Jeri Taylor as well as Eagle Crest resident Jeffrey McClure. Ray School District has three four-year terms and one two-year term up for grabs. Only the two-year term will have a race. Patricia Magdaleno and Nancy Wilkinson have both filed to run for the two-year term. Those running for the three fouryear seats are incumbent Wayne Cude, Brian Coleman and recently appointed Amanda Kelley. Mammoth-San Manuel School District has three seats open, but only two candidates running, leaving a slot for a possible write-in candidate. Incumbent Fred Roybal has filed for one of the open seats as has Malinda LeGrand of School Board, Page 13

Oracle realtor Theresa Throop led the efforts to find the ideal piece of property for SBCO’s Kids’ Closet Mammoth facility. The land’s $1.00 a year for 40 year-lease was icing on the cake.

By Rick Cato In April of 2011, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) board member and vice-president of Kid’s Closet Paula Morgan was looking for land. SBCO had decided to purchase land somewhere in the Tri-Communities in order to build a new Kids’ Closet and Paula had a hot land tip. She had a particular piece of property in mind in the Town of Mammoth. Paula walked into the local real estate office, Oracle Land and Homes, and was introduced to sales associate Theresa Throop. Paula inquired into the viability and purchase of the parcel of land. Theresa, a life-long resident of the TriCommunities and a fan of Kids’ Closet knew







immediately that the land Paula was inquiring about would not work for the specific need of building a new Kids’ Closet. However, Theresa had another idea. She knew of an 11-acre parcel of land owned by the Town of Mammoth. Coincidently the land sat directly on Highway 77 and was adjacent to Mammoth’s elementary school. As the land had been sitting vacant for years, Theresa wondered if the Town would donate or lease part of the land to SBCO and Kids’ Closet. Theresa, Paula and Debbie Foster (Foster Motor Lodge) drove to the site to inspect it. According to Theresa, Debbie knew the land like the back of her hand. The land was perfect. Theresa shared her ideas with Oracle Land and Home broker Helen Vinson. With Helen’s support Theresa (on company time, and for which she and OLH would receive zero compensation) sprang into action. Theresa approached Mammoth Mayor Craig Williams and City Clerk Rachel Sanchez with the idea,

ultimately bringing the Town of Mammoth and SBCO parties together. “From that point Paula took over and the rest, as they say, is history,” explained Theresa. The idea of a 40-year lease of 2.8 acres of land for $1.00 a year made it onto the agenda of the Town Council. Surveys, lease documents, etc., were completed and by June of 2011 the deal had been sealed. By Oct. 2011, TB Contractors of Catalina was awarded the construction contract. Construction began in January 2012. “I am thrilled and flattered to be able to help with this important cause,” added Theresa. “But, you need to know that all of this may not have happened so seamlessly without the support of Helen Vinson. She was completely supportive of the plan and of my efforts on it. In fact, just recently Helen and OLH made a cash donation to the Kids’ Closet Kick-Off Campaign.” “I am incredibly proud of the role Theresa played in helping SBCO get the new Kids’ Closet built in Mammoth,” added Vinson. “I can take credit only for

listening to her idea and encouraging her to run with it. Theresa is the one who made it happen. She cares deeply about the children in the TriCommunities area.” “It has been fantastic this spring to watch that building go up,” concluded Throop. “Everyone in Mammoth has been watching it spring to life. I am amazed at how wonderful it has become. This has been a pleasure for me. I feel so proud that I had a hand in making this happen.” “Last year SaddleBrooke Community Outreach and the Kids’ Closet found a wonderful friend and supporter in Theresa Throop and OLH,” added Paula Morgan. “Theresa was not only instrumental in finding the property for our new Kids’ Closet; she also facilitated meetings with the Town’s mayor and clerk. Helen Vinson was very generous with her staff’s time and resources. Theresa came to all of the zoning and council meetings to support our efforts. We could not have secured this wonderful site without her hard work, creative ideas and unfailing support.”

Pinal County Attorney James Walsh presents a motion to the Board of Supervisors urging them to recognize Aug. as Child Support Awareness Month. Kostas Kalaitzidis/Pinal County Attorney’s Office

Child Support Continued from Page 9 somewhat unique as most of the other counties in the state have turned this service over to the Attorney General’s Office,” Walsh explained. “We’ve chosen to keep it as part of the County Attorney’s office so we can provide a broader range of services.” “The Board of Supervisors has always supported us keeping the

program in the County,” Walsh continued, “This approval is just a continuation of that support.” Despite keeping services local, the County’s child support services are funded largely through State Department funding which Walsh says leaves approximately $2 million or 10 percent funded at the County level. In addition to helping families receive back support, the County Attorney’s Office also offers tests to help families determine paternity or modify payment amounts;

all in Florence, services Walsh believes wouldn’t be otherwise available in Pinal County. “If we didn’t have this program we would have to send people to Maricopa or Tucson,” he said. While a convenient location is undoubtedly a plus, Walsh pointed out that the real proof of the success of the program is the $22 million collected for approximately 11,000 families during the last fiscal year. Currently there are four lawyers and 28 other employees who oversee child support cases, according to Walsh his team is one of the best, and they have the state incentive grants to prove it. “We’ve been recognized as the best or one of the

best in the state,” he said. “The Department of Economic Security sets benchmarks expecting certain things and we always beat them.” To celebrate the designation of Aug. as Child Support Awareness Month, Walsh says that his office will be displaying a banner (pictured) to show their support of the program and their dedication to its importance. “Those funds go directly to clothes or nutrition, school supplies or medical assistance,” Walsh said. “This is important work otherwise they have no other recourse.” For more information on the child support services provided by Pinal County, visit

might have, a task that Walsh explained was vital as each Triad group operates independently of the rest. “The notion of Triads is every Triad looks a little bit different than the next,” Walsh said. “Each includes community components and needs that shapes the Triad and makes it unique.” Services provided by each Triad vary but Walsh discussed three of the Triads’ most common services, lock boxes, home alone units and reassurance calls. “We offer lock boxes, boxes placed usually on the porch with a key to the residence inside that only emergency responders can open,” Walsh said. “That way if we know something is going on inside they can get in without breaking down the door or forcing a window.” “The notion of a home alone unit is simple,” Walsh continued. “Elderly individuals are

often isolated by themselves and all kinds of things can happen be it a fall or a stroke or what-have-you. Using the unit is quicker than dialing 911 and it sends a first responder to the home to see what assistance is necessary. While not focusing on immediate response in times of emergency, Walsh noted that another Triad service, reassurance calls, can pick up on potential issues before they get out of hand. “Community members contact seniors every day to make sure everything is alright,” he said. “Oftentimes volunteers who go to people’s homes can see what’s wrong and report to us and then we can follow up.” “Approximately 1 in 10 seniors will be the subject of financial, physical or psychological abuse,” Walsh warned. “All of these things are out there, just as young people are more vulnerable the elderly

Continued from Page 3 announced that they are moving forward with phase three of their drilling at the San Jose project in the Safford Mining District. The test holes will be used to test geological magnetic survey targets that may represent porphyry-style mineralized intrusive rocks. Dr. Richard Carmona a Democratic candidate for the US Senate seat recently took a tour of the Resolution Copper Project. In an interview with the Copper Area News, Carmona explained that he was impressed with magnitude of the project and the reclamation

that the company has completed. More details on these updates below: ASARCO Commissions First Komatsu 930E truck at the Mission Mine ASARCO LLC and Road Machinery commissioned the first of 14 Komatsu 930E haul trucks, five of which will be delivered this year. Each truck will move over 4.5 million tons of rock per year. Manuel Ramos, President and Chief Operating Officer stated, “We’re very excited to add this equipment to our fleet. Each truck has a payload of 320 tons and will allow us to maximize our production. We’ll continue to invest to expand

Mission production with a focus on our employees, safety, community, and the environment.” Robert Leigh, Sales Manager Mining, stated “Road Machinery is proud to be a partner with Asarco now and into the future and in the upcoming delivery and commissioning of this large group of trucks.” The acquisitions of the trucks are part of Asarco’s present expansion and replacement of existing fleet which will increase mining by 12%, reduce unit cost and decrease overall air emissions with the installation of new environmental controls. Delivery of the trucks will be completed over the next five years. The plant expansion is expected to

create almost 50 additional jobs in the Tucson area. Komatsu trucks are American manufactured in the United States. Organized in 1899 and acquired by Grupo Mexico in 1999, ASARCO today is a major domestic integrated copper producer, producing over 400 million pounds of copper annually and employing over 2,600 employees. The Mission Mine employs over 600 Arizonans. With more than a century of copper innovation in Arizona, ASARCO has maintained a strong commitment to safety, its people, facilities, operations and the environment.

August 15, 2012 commerce, ASARCO and Arizona’s success has been a century in the making. Rosemont Receives Air Permit from ADEQ After years of opposition and lack of permitting from Pima County, Rosemont Copper last week announced that the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (“ADEQ”) has asserted complete jurisdiction over Rosemont Copper’s (“Rosemont”) Air Quality Permit due to the confusion and uncertainty caused by the inappropriate denial of Rosemont’s Air Quality Permit application by the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality. Rosemont has thereby received the draft Air Quality Permit from the ADEQ. ADEQ’s Air Quality Permit will ensure that Rosemont meets all federal, state and local requirements by operating with enhanced emissions controls at the mine site. The public comment period, which commences today, will be 60 days and will end on October 9, 2012. Soon after the conclusion of the public comment period, the final Air Quality Permit will be issued for Rosemont. “We are happy to see the Air Quality Permit process continue to advance and have the ADEQ officially issue the draft permit,” said Rod Pace, Augusta’s Chief Operating Officer. “The ADEQ will give Rosemont regulatory certainty and specific timeframes that were lacking in the Pima County permitting process. The ADEQ has handled our application since the initial submission in November 2011 in a professional and consistent manner.” Oracle Ridge Oracle Mining Corp. announced that Doug Nicholson has been appointed Chief Executive Officer by the Board of Directors, effective today. Nicholson joined Oracle Mining in February as Chief Operating Officer and has undertaken a rigorous review of the

Corporation’s operations for the past month. He will continue to lead the Oracle Mining operations team in the re-start of the Oracle Ridge Copper Mine near Tucson, Arizona. He has extensive experience in the construction and management of mining operations in North America and will also lead all aspects of the Corporation’s strategic planning and business development. “It is an honor to take the leadership role with Oracle Mining as we develop a near-term copper project in a desirable jurisdiction,” said Mr. Nicholson. “Oracle Mining is executing on a plan to production that will deliver value to shareholders and to the economy of the Tucson area.” Eagland, who has served as interim CEO since June 2011, has resigned as CEO effective today and will continue to serve the Board as a Director. “The planned CEO transition began last year and the introduction of someone of Doug’s accomplishments comes at the right time for Oracle Mining,” said Mr. Eagland. “Doug has immediately proven himself an operations and corporate leader and we are confident he will bridge the transition into production.” Prior to joining Oracle Mining, Nicholson worked with NovaGold Resources Inc. and served as President of Donlin Gold LLC, a 50/50 joint venture between NovaGold and Barrick Gold Corp., assuming that role during nine years of service between 2002 and 2011. At Kinross Gold from 1992 to 2002, he was responsible for scoping, scheduling, developing mine plans and staffing for the Fort Knox Mine. He holds a BSc. in Mining Engineering from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. In addition, the Corporation is pleased to announce that Nafissa Upright has joined the Corporation as Vice Mining, Page 16

Pete Rios

August 15, 2012

Alicia Bristow

James Montano

District 1 Supervisor candidates at Copper Area News forum By Chase Kamp Copper Area News Three of the five candidates vying for the District 1 Supervisor seat gathered for a community forum on Aug. 10, 2012 to discuss their personal merits and policy stances. While incumbent Democrat Pete Rios touted his achievements in office, his opponents presented themselves as alternatives to the status quo in the County seat of Florence. The forum was hosted by Copper Area News Publishers. Republican candidate Jim Montaño took an outsider stance, saying he is not a professional politician. “I believe I have what you guys need in District 1 and in the county to be represented,” he said. Independent challenger Alicia Bristow framed herself as a public servant, citing her time as executive director for the Hands Across the Border Foundation, a non-profit that provides intercultural exchanges between Mexican and American students. “I believe in principles, not politics,” Bristow said. “I know I have a lot to learn, but I think I have the leadership qualities that you need.” Countering his opponents and referencing his extensive public sector résumé, Rios said some think of him as a politician, yet he considers himself a policy maker. “I’ve been a policy maker for three decades and I’m pretty darn proud of it,” Rios said. When asked what made her candidacy unique, Bristow touted experience including her current position as President of the Oracle School Board, saying she would offer a fresh outlook to the office. “I believe that it might be a new perspective is needed in County

government,” she said. “The status quo is no longer what we need.” Rios argued he was pleased with the work accomplished by the Board. “We have frozen property taxes increases for two years,” he stated. “We reduced property taxes for this coming fiscal year. A lot of people are happy about that.” The candidates also addressed the protection of San Pedro River, the last undammed desert river in the southwest. All of the candidates said protecting the river was a no-brainer, but there were complications to work around. Montaño said one of the challenges is avoiding the intervention of the Environmental Protection Agency and get help from the state. “That’s shown not to be a good thing for other areas and other communities,” he said. Rios said the ranchers and farmers on the lands around the river have been good stewards of the space, so the question becomes whether or not to seek more protection. “U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services is proposing a refuge for the San Pedro,” he said, “and the question is whether we want to sell private land to the federal government when only seven percent of the County is private land.” Bristow said all stakeholders should be brought to the table on the decision. “There are other organizations that are trying to look for the best option to maintain that area,” she said. The primary election will be held on Aug. 28 and the general election votes will be cast on Nov. 6. Also running for the District 1 Supervisor seat are Democrat Mary Bateman-Espinoza and Republican Gem Cox.
