  • About

    In July 2014, Hudbay acquired control of Augusta Resource Corporation and its Rosemont project, an open-pit copper / molybdenum /silver porphyry / skarn deposit southeast of Tucson.

    The Rosemont project is located near a number of large porphyry type producing copper mines and is expected to be one of the largest copper mines in the United States, accounting for approximately 10 percent of total U.S. copper production.

    The property is approximately 20,100 acres of patented and unpatented claims and fee land. Hudbay plans to construct an open pit mine with a 19-year mine life, employing 400 people directly and creating estimated economic impact of $488 million.
