Conservation Group President Discusses Environmental Impact of Rosemont Copper

Gayle Hartmann speaks out against the newly permitted mining project.

Gayle Hartmann of Save the Scenic Santa Ritas sat down with Lorraine Rivera to voice her disapproval of the Rosemont Copper Project. Hartmann discussed her concerns, which centered on water and wildlife.

“I think we really need to look at this in the long term. We have to learn how to reduce our impact on the world, on the Earth,” Hartmann said. “The Earth is not going to keep giving us resources and we simply have to do better.”
