Rosemont Copper Mine: Memo in Support of Preliminary Injunction (No. 4:19-cv-00177-TUC-JAS)

The Santa Rita Mountains rise as a “sky island” from the desert south of Tucson, Arizona. They are a place of remarkable scenic beauty that contain some of the highest quality streams and wetland ecosystems in the American Southwest. This is also a landscape imbued with cultural significance, whose waters and wildlife have sustained Native American cultural and religious life for over 10,000 years. For the Tohono O’odham Nation, Pascua Yaqui Tribe, and Hopi Tribe, these mountains are a place of prayer and respect that must be safeguarded for future generations.
