The article reports on the protection agreement made between the Rosemont, a subsidiary of Augusta Resource Corp. and Sahuarita Heights Well Owners on their proposal of building a mine at the Santa Rita Mountain in Tucson, Arizona. Hugh Holub, the lawyer representing the well owners, said that it is the first time that groundwater laws have agreed on direct mitigation and replenished in an obligation. Rosemont said that the agreement was made to protect their aquifers from the mine's operation.
