The Coronado National Forest has extended the comment period for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Rosemont Mine through the end of the month, Jan. 31st.

If you considered making your position known but time got away from you, this is your chance. If you sent a comment, read down a bit to learn how you can make sure it was received.

Comments may be submitted in any or all of four ways. Note: if you submitted your comments via email on the January 18th, please check to make sure your email was not returned to you. The Forest Service has not been sending responses but they are working to post all comments online as quickly as possible. They hope to accomplish this by the end of the week. To ensure that your comment was received, search for your name/comment at this site.

If you search for your name and cannot find your comment on this site, there is a good chance it was lost. If this seems to have happened you can resubmit using any of the ways listed above. 

Save the Scenic Santa Ritas has heard from several people who saw their name in the search results but received only an error message when they tried to follow the link to check their comment. In these instances, it is probable the Forest Service has received your comment but not certain. If this happens to you, SSSR suggests you use the email address in the error message,, to provide a description of what happened to you.
