Tribes seek to block proposed Arizona mine, saying it would destroy sacred & cultural sites

Three Native American Tribes have filed a preliminary injunction against Canadian mining company Hudbay Minerals to stop its plans to raze lands which encompass the Tribes’ burial grounds, ancient village sites, and sacred sites.

The Tribes’ ancestral sites stand to be obliterated to pave the way for what would be the third largest copper mine in the United States — and quick profits for Hudbay Minerals. Earthjustice is representing the Tohono O’odham Nation, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, and the Hopi Tribe in court.
