Resolution Copper postpones meeting on tailings, holds forums on mine operations and water By Mila Besich Lira Resolution Copper has announced that it will be rescheduling its community forum regarding the tailings to Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013. The meeting is set for 6 p.m. at the Magma Club. On Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, Representatives Paul Gosar and Ann Kirkpatrick will discuss why the land exchange for the project is important and necessary. That meeting will be held at the Superior Junior Senior High School Multipurpose room at 6 p.m. Over the summer, Resolution Copper has hosted a series of informative meetings to educate the public

on economic and environmental impacts that the project may create. Its last two forums were focussed on the block cave mining method and water use. Both forums were well attended and important issues were brought to light. During the mining method forum several attendees asked why Resolution will not consider using the traditional cut and fill method of mining. Ian Edgar the General Manager of Studies for Resolution Copper conducted the forum and explained the various forms of mining from cut and fill, panel caving and open pit mining. He explained that the Resolution ore body is a

porphyry deposit and that was one of the primary reasons block cave mining has been chosen. Many still questioned why Resolution could not deploy the cut and fill method which was used in the Magma Mine. Edgar explained that the when Magma was operating they were mining veins of copper and not a porphyry. Edgar also explained that the block cave mining they are planning to do is safer and more economical for the project. The cut and fill mining used by Magma would be five to 10 times more expensive and also five to 10 times less efficient than block cave mining.

Before the mine can even start working Resolution will need to construct 70 miles of total preproduction development. This development will include additional mining head frames/mine shafts, tunnels, ventilation and hoisting. Edgar also explained that the block cave mining will cause some subsidence at Oak Flats but the subsidence will not hurt Apache Leap. “The subsidence will be predictable, measurable and controllable,” explained Edgar The presentation showed that the subsidence zone is at least 100 feet away from the Leap. The following week Resolution Copper hosted a forum on the water use and local hydrology. Greg Ghidotti the Hydrology Manager for Resolution Copper gave a detailed presentation on how waters are managed in the Superior area as well as how the mine will work to conserve

and treat the waters used at the mine. Ghidotti explained that since the initial studies have been done Resolution has been able to further reduce water use by 17 percent and they are currently evaluating other methods to conserve and reduce water use. Resolution Copper will acquire the water needed for the project with three different methods. The first method to be used will be the dewatering of the mine, pumps will remove water

from the mine and that will provide an estimated 1,842 acre feet per year. The second method of acquiring water will be water banking. There are three steps to water banking, the first step is for Resolution Copper to purchase Central Arizona Project Water they then allow the farmers to use the CAP water instead of pumping it from the aquifer. This allows Resolution Copper to bank ground water for future use. The water will be banked in the nearby New Magma Irrigation district and the Hohokam Irrigation district near Casa Grande. The third method that the company may utilize is purchasing annual allotments from existing CAP water owners. Currently Resolution Copper has banked 50 percent of its demand for water. The banked and CAP waters will be piped to the operation. Ghidotti gave a detailed presentation on all the fault lines and aquifers in the area. He explained how those fault lines affect how the water flows. Many in opposition of the project have contended that the Resolution, Page 13

Copper Corridor receives $50,000 for economic development from County The Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition accepted a check from the Pinal County Board of Supervisors for $50,000 at its meeting last week in Aravaipa.

Pastor’s Corner: Depressed, Anxious, and Stressed By Joe PalmerPastor Fellowship Baptist Church We each want peace. A college student in China once said to me in a most longing way, “All I want is peace.” It was pitiful, but she was not abnormal. Would not most of us cry out the same? Twenty percent of the general adult population will deal with a debilitating bout of depression some time during their life. The other 80 percent will suffer with their depression but manage to keep going. One in six of us suffer with serious anxiety. The other 5/6 of us just press on nervously (at times) through life wondering what lies ahead. Stress meets us daily, and six out of ten Americans feel overstressed. It is possible to live without depression and anxiety and to deal with stress in a positive way. Paul said, “I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” Philippians 4:11 If you seek peace, or if you would like to help people have peace, then plan on

joining us on Sept. 8 at Fellowship Baptist Church at 6 p.m. to watch videos of professional Christian counselors who will teach us how to care for people God’s way. If you would like to talk with me (Pastor Joe Palmer of Fellowship Baptist) about it, email me at joeandsuzypal@

is the most beautiful part of Pinal County. It has also been the area hardest hit by volatility in the commodities market with the opening and closing of mining operations,” said Pete Rios.  “Pinal County supports economic development directly through our staff and also by working with economic development foundations and coalitions who are often the ‘boots on the ground’ helping local businesses grow, expand and flourish.”   “We know that the county’s economic prosperity is linked to the opportunities that are created in all of our communities, which is why I am pleased to present this contribution on behalf of the Board to support the Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition,” Rios said. The Copper Corridor meets the third Friday of every month at the CAC Aravaipa Campus. Meetings begin at 8:30am.

cancer and undergoing chemotherapy treatment, the doctors were not sure if it was a good idea for the pregnancy to continue, but Michelle would not have it any other way. Michelle said, as James grew up, he was a good child but did go through thick and thin in his young life. James felt he was headed down a rough road and wrote to Project Challenge asking for a chance with them before he ended up in deep trouble. Based on his sincere, pleading, letter and circumstances Project Challenge accepted him. James went into the military in 1999 and was based near the Pentagon during Sept. 11, 1999 he was one of the many who served cleaning up at the Pentagon. James also served three tours in Iraq. During his eight year stint in the military he had suffered family loss and a few other life changing events, some that made him feel devastated. Due to James’ circumstances he made the decision to move to Kansas with his vehicle and a few personal items. In his short time there he has made significant positive changes in his life. It takes faith, to go forward not knowing what the future holds. James seems to have taken that leap. James currently works for Midway Motors in McPherson, Kansas, has a partner Ivonne Cabrera, a step daughter Aria Analyse who is six years old and his look-alike son Alexander who is 18 months old. He has taken pride in his new life in Kansas, has a beautiful home and puts his family first. We all make difficult decisions in our life and we are never certain of the way our life will turn

Michelle Payton shows off the family resemblance of her son and grandson. out it certainly sounds like James has survived some difficult times and is enjoying the good life. Michelle is so excited and happy for her son and his life in Kansas. Congratulations to James

and his family! If you are interested in seeing and/or reading the look-a-like article for yourself please feel free to check out the website at www.mcphersonsentinel. com.

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona wells running dry was due to the prolonged drought. Resolution has put many test wells throughout the area including Superior, Queen Valley and Hewitt Station Road to ensure that the project is not affecting local wells. A resident from the San Carlos Indian Reservation asked if the Resolution Copper was going to affect water in San Carlos. Ghidotti explained that the mine will have no affect on the San Carlos reservation because those are different aquifers and there are many mountains between the project and San Carlos, which will keep the project from affecting San Carlos’s water. Several residents including Councilmember Soyla Peralta asked questions about the water quality and if local water will be contaminated by the chemicals that come out of mining. Ghidotti explained that they will treat the

The Shipman Fire: a firsthand account By Frank Giroux Special to the Copper Basin The following is an accurate account of the event which destroyed my home at the old DuBois Ranch headquarters two and a half miles south of Kearny at mile marker 143.5 west off State Highway 177. I have read several articles none of which are factual. The fire began with a lightning strike in the old channel of the Gila River approximately 130 yards west south west of the home of my neighbor, Charles Stephens. This location is one mile north of my home toward the town of Kearny. My residence is 63815 East Tristan Rd., which is a dirt lane running west off Highway 177. Maps erroneously show Tristan Road running from the highway westerly

across the Gila River and intersecting El Comino Rio…the river road. The road from my home at the old DuBois Ranch HQ is on private ranch property, built by the family over 50 years ago. Neither Pinal County nor the state of Arizona has had any involvement with this private track. The lightning strike was after 5 p.m. It appears to have burned for approximately 15 minutes in the general area before the wind picked up and began to push the blaze south, gaining intensity and growing into a fire storm. During this time, I was inside my studioshop and unaware of the impending danger. Around 5:20 p.m. I heard Ralph S. (Button) DuBois coming across the river bottom on his Honda Quad. Knowing that it was time for Button to be

leaving the ranch for his shift at the Ray Mine, I and my companion dog Frida, walked outside to greet him as he went to work. As we walked forward a friend, Abe Romero, drove in hurriedly and called to Button inquiring as to my whereabouts. Button responded that he was coming to get me and Abe turned around and left promptly. Puzzled, I called to Button and he responded that I needed to get Frida, load what I could in my truck and leave. We had fire. As I closed toward Button he pointed north and I turned to look over my residence and saw what appeared to be napalm rolling right toward us. I had seen several napalm strikes during service in Viet Nam, but none where I was on the business end of things. I placed Frida in my Ford F250 pickup truck…started

the vehicle…and went into my residence to find what I could to evacuate. The fire closed very fast and I had about 10, not more than 15, minutes to decide and carry out to the truck. Shortly Justin Goodwin arrived and began to help and carry, as the heat increased he had to leave. I made one last trip inside and Button walked in to help and get the keys to my quad. He had been moving vehicles out to the highway and running back on foot. I informed Button that we had no time as the quad was locked and chained. Button ran to his pickup and I took one last look and walked out as fire broke through the awning. I mounted my truck, drove south to turn around and then headed north for the gate with Button right behind. We drove through Fire, Page 16

Fire Continued from Page 13

about 20 yards of flame and broke out behind the storm and across the rail road tracks and out to the highway. The power poles to the north side of our drive were on fire and we asked the arriving fire fighters from Hayden to do what they could to extinguish them. Button and I then moved our vehicles to the east side of the highway and dismounted. As I talked to folks there I noticed smoke coming from the back of my camper shell. Opening the hatch I found three items burning. A fellow from the neighboring ranch ran over with a bucket of water and helped make thing safe. I then realized that we had left the area at the last possible moment. Fire is a very dynamic

Copper Basin News, Hayden, Arizona process, creating its own weather. All of the structures on the west side of our drive way were completely destroyed. On the east side, the fire burned from north to south taking the supply of fence stays, gate posts, heavy timber and lumber. It burned up to the portajohn; burning the north side of the structure and then lifting up and ran over the top of my Bronco, ATV trailer and diesel storage tank. Then taking to ground and running behind and past my 40 foot Conex Box (shipping container). The fire burned the paint off the south west corner of the box taking the timber and lumber stored there and took a stored travel trailer. All were completely destroyed. To the west parallel to my storage box and 25 feet away, we had

approximately 60 rail road ties for fence work and 50 pine 6x8 inch timbers… all completely destroyed. Ironically, I had seven rail road ties stacked at the north end of the storage box and none burned! The fire jumped the rail road track to the east of the storage box and burned toward the old Birdsell house and then moved south through our old corrals and hay barn. On the west side of the tracks and to the south of our site, the fire progressed for about one quarter mile and then stopped moving south. This incident began in 1983 with the Gila River flood and, grew by orders of magnitude with the flood of 1993 when both the Gila and San Pedro Rivers carried water for weeks on end. After the 1983 flood

The Shipman Fire rolled through Frank Giroux’s property. (James Carnes photo) obtained an injunction such as to protect the habitat of the willow fly catcher. Fuel built for 30 years. Adding to the fuel supply on the west side of the highway in the river bottom and north to Kearny was the removal of livestock from grazing. This contributed to a buildup of fine tinder, creating a bomb awaiting an ignition source. God sent the lightning bolt on July 8, 2013, at approximately 5 p.m. Those responsible for this catastrophe will not be held accountable. However, we must recognize the truth and accept the fact that practices of irresponsibility and malfeasance to say the least are cause and effect. The native people that have lived here over hundreds of years managed the ground, and those families that have worked the land for much of the past 130 years did as well…. that is up

until the 1983 flood. I greatly appreciate all of the concern and financial assistance coming my way. I am truly blessed and my American family is taking care of its own. The question that begs answer is: What will we do to make certain that this never happens again? Please join me in managing those we elect and hire to protect our resources. We owe this to the young men who were sacrificed at Yarnell as poor land management took them from us. We owe this to those families now living along the San Pedro and Gila rivers — from Dudleyville, Winkelman, Hayden, Kearny, Riverside and Kelvin. Conditions for a catastrophe are well established and must be mitigated, Now! Thank you for your concern and interest. /s/ Frank W. Giroux
