This document presents an air dispersion modeling protocol that will be followed to assess ambient air quality impacts from the proposed Rosemont Copper Company Project (Rosemont Project). The proposed Rosemont Project is a new open pit copper mine that will be located in the Santa Rita Mountains approximately 20 miles southeast of Tucson, Arizona in the Pima County (Figure 1.1). The Rosemont Project, Mine Plan of Operations was submitted to the Coronado National Forest in July 2007 (complete document available at www.rosemontcopper.com). The Coronado National Forest represents the Federal Land Manager for purposes of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will be prepared for the Rosemont Project.
