Florence Copper has a historic right to mine on its property off Hunt Highway, a right it did not lose in the town of Florence’s 2007 zoning ordinance, a Maricopa County Superior Court judge has ruled.

The ruling comes just as the Florence Copper Project has begun its small-scale test of the in-situ mining process.

“The court finds that evidence supporting FCI’s (Florence Copper’s) position clearly outweighs the evidence supporting the town’s position,” Judge Roger E. Brodman wrote in his 21-page Jan. 2 decision.
