This article studies the characteristics of modern Arizona mining scams or nontraditional mining projects and describes a number of examples. The purported mines or properties were located in Arizona, or the schemes had other substantial ties to the state.
Crushed stone is the product resulting from the artificial crushing of rocks, boulders, or large cobblestones, substantially all faces of which have resulted from the crushing operation. BLM generally considers crushed stone sources a saleable mineral, which must be purchased from BLM. Some producers focusing on the Phoenix metropolitan area have searched for ways to avoid purchasing these minerals, thus avoiding payments to the BLM. One of the more common ways is to claim that the mineral material is “locatable” instead of saleable.
This report summarizes the results of an economic impact analysis of the Rosemont Copper Project, an open-pit mining operation to be developed on a 15,000 acre site in Pima County about 30 miles southeast of Tucson. The analysis employed the REMI PI+ regional economic forecasting model to estimate the economic impacts of the Project for the Cochise/Pima County/Santa Cruz Counties study area, for the State of Arizona, and for the United States.
Regional benefits of the Rosemont Project are discussed in greater detail in the Economic Impacts Report prepared by the Seidman Institute of the Arizona State University that is part of this document. It covers Pima and Santa Cruz Counties; the major benefits accruing to Pima County.
A serial listing of the publications of the Arizona Department of Mineral Resources (1939-1984) and the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources (1984-August 1990). The name change in 1984, to more accurately reflect the Department’s involvement with mining, did not affect the function or the procedures of the Department, so the publications have not been segregated.
This report was prepared to briefly highlight Arizona’s metallic mineral potential and current projects. It has been compiled from annual reports, websites, personal interviews, news articles, and other sources. It is acknowledged that there are additional activities and available properties not listed in this report.
The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.
The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog and Library One Search. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.
Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
