Game and Fish critical of Forest Service study

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Game and Fish Department is criticizing the Forest Service's approach to an environmental study on the proposed Rosemont Copper mine in the Santa Rita mountains.

Newly released documents reveal that Game and Fish has accused the Forest Service of ignoring its input and mis-representing the adverse impact the mine will have on the area.

The Forest Service will publish the revised environmental impact statement later this year.
