CALL TO ACTION to Support Florence Copper

January 15, 2018

Call to Action to Support Florence Copper!  Florence Copper needs your support at an upcoming Pinal County Air Quality Permit hearing – especially if you live in Pinal County. 

You can help by ATTENDING and SPEAKING at the hearing.


Public Hearing:  Tues., January 16th, 6:00 p.m.

Location:           31 N. Pinal St., Bldg. F, Florence

Written Comments:    Written comments if you cannot attend can be submitted:
Pinal County Air Quality Control District                                          P.O. Box 987, Florence, Arizona, 85132
   (Must be received by Jan. 16th)

Points to make in your comments:

  • Florence Copper has received no permit violations since the permit was issued in 1996
  • Florence Copper will provide hundreds of jobs for the residents of Pinal County
  • The updated permit will reflect state-of-the-art technology and the use of low reactive chemicals
  • The minor amendment further reduces the majority of emissions even though the current permit is well under the “minor source” threshold limits
  • The permit fully incorporates current Pinal County & EPA standards for air quality

Your comment can be as simple as this:  “I live in [or do work in] Pinal County, and I support this permit to allow Florence Copper to move forward with its Production Test Facility.”
