04-21-2020 13:49

The National Trust for Historic Preservation submitted written testimony for the record of a hearing held by the Subcommittee for Indigenous Peoples of the United States in the House on March 12, 2020. The hearing was titled “the irreparable environmental and cultural impacts of the proposed Resolution Copper mining operation” and examined a federal land exchange that would transfer the Oak Flat parcel in the Tonto National Forest to the company. The National Trust has long been concerned about the impact of proposed mining and listed Oak Flat among America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places in 2015. The Chi’chil Bildagoteel (Oak Flat) Historic District Traditional Cultural Property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.
