Rosemont Copper Mine: Memo in Support of Preliminary Injunction (No. 4:17-cv-00475-TUC-JAS)

Plaintiffs Tohono O’odham Nation, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, and the Hopi Tribe move the Court for immediate injunctive relief barring Rosemont Copper Company from commencing the development of a new, mile-wide, open-pit copper mine southwest of Tucson. The project will ultimately disinter ancestral remains, obliterate archaeological and cultural sites, and permanently scar the natural beauty of the Santa Rita Mountains. Given the important and unique resources at risk, an injunction pending the Court’s final decision on the merits of this case is necessary and appropriate.
