Resolution Copper will be removing the historic Magma Smelter Complex in Superior as part of a reclamation project.

A public forum to discuss the project will be hosted by Resolution Copper at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Superior Junior-Senior High School.

The smelter complex was built in the 1920s by Magma Copper, which began mining the area in the early 1900s and operated for most of the 20th century. Resolution Copper has rehabilitated more than 130 acres as part of the already $40 million project.
