Arizona Illustrated did a piece on Rosemont mine and Davidson Canyon quarry HERE. All the stops are being pulled out on this one, including getting the Santa Cruz river registered as navigable.

Incidentally the other ‘navigable’ waterway being challenged is the cement river bed in LA used for the chase scenes in the Terminator series.  Terminator riverbed clip.

At what point does this insanity stop?

The comment in the AZ Illustrated piece from the Cal Portland representative says it all. Davidson Canyon has been an on and off active quarry for years. Rosemont has been a mine for over 70 years.

It reminds me of the story of the neighbor that called DM Air Force Base to complain about the loud jets flying over head.  The base representative reminded the neighbor that the base has been an active facility since the 1940’s and asked when the neighbor moved into the area. The complaining resident stated that he bought the house 3 years ago because he got a great deal on it.

How about a few high paying jobs guys? How about raw materials for cement production closer than New Mexico? Call me crazy.
