    Zellous environmentalists and unrealistic EPA regs were significantly killing jobs as well.

    Resolution will be a massive mine once they can get over all the permitting. However block caving at that depth will have it challenges.

    Sustainable mining? There is no such thing. The ore will eventually be depleted and then its over.

    What did this so to the Native Americans that lived in Globe. Az. Did they profit?

    If It can’t be grown, It must be mined.

    Copper mining has been an unmistakable force and the main economic driver in Arizona. While mining poses its own set of challenges, copper from Arizona is important to state and domestic production materials. The video aims to tell the unique and fascinating story of that history.

    Very interesting!

    Real propaganda clip. Copper to build war machines, grow the world refugee numbers, fill the bank accounts of oligarchs in fiscal paradises, not free college or healthcare or descent retirement pensions.

    So now we know why the entire state of Arizona is a giant pit of toxic waste. It was because of mining. Uranium in the north, copper and silver in the east and south. Thousands of abandoned mines. Just fly over in a small plane, you can’t miss them.

    Winston Churchill was the son of Jenny Jerome, daughter of the major investor in the copper mine at Jerome.

  22. Irish Tino on April 24, 2022 at 1:47 pm

    Nice propaganda piece from the state of Arizona. Lots of flags, jingoism, wanted to vomit while watching.

    When people first arrived on Earth they found it a big ball of nothing but garbage. Slowly, but surely, people have been transforming the surface of the earth from it’s natural state of garbage, to one of order.

    @PlacidRationale Copper "does nothing for the welfare of humans?"  You use it everyday.  Try living without it.
