Preliminary Soil Salvage Management Plan

Document ID: cdm-smith-preliminary-soil-salvage-plan-201207

Tetra Tech completed a soil resource assessment within the vicinity of the proposed Rosemont Copper Project (Project) in Pima County, Arizona for the Rosemont Copper Company (Rosemont). The soil assessment was conducted to assist in identifying soil map units based on soil characteristics for evaluation of soil suitability for reclamation and appropriate salvage depths for the soil.

This Preliminary Soil Salvage Management Plan (Plan) is intended to summarize the soil resource assessment and provide greater detail in the management of salvaged soil from removal, through storage, to final placement, with the goal of providing sufficient cover on all disturbed areas to be reclaimed. This Plan describes aspects specific to the management of the salvaged soil and the reuse of suitable available soil within the disturbed areas. For further details on the contouring, grading and re-vegetation of the disturbed areas refer to the Preliminary Reclamation and Closure Plan for the Barrel Alternative.
