West Plant & Magma Smelter Reclamation
Resolution Copper is committed to completing a major environmental reclamation project for the West Plant site near Superior affected by previous mining operations. We are continuing land reclamation work to address legacy mining impacts by removing soil contaminants and restoring the area with natural vegetation.

We’ve already rehabilitated more than 130 acres of the site and consolidated waste from the old mine, improved storm water management and closed historic tailings and waste rock piles with engineered covers planted with native vegetation, making what’s left of Magma’s operation better than when we found it from a safety, health and environmental perspective.

So far, we have invested $40 million in our land reclamation work at the West Plant site.
