Overview:

Geologists from around the world have visited the small rural town of Florence, Arizona. Why? The orebody in Florence is unique, perfect for an innovative, proven, and environmentally responsible mining method known as in-situ copper recovery (ISCR). Florence Copper already has produced over 1 million pounds of copper using ISCR and is poised to move into commercial operations soon. In this talk, Sophie Dessart, the Manager of Communications and Public Affairs at Florence Copper, will share more about the project, ISCR, and Florence Copper’s path to becoming America’s next major copper producer.
