What Is The Meagher County Stewardship Council?

Making sure that community concerns are always part of the Black Butte Copper discussion has led the Company to fund the creation of an independent, non-profit citizens group to champion the long term environmental, culture, and economic interests of Meagher county residents called the Meagher County Stewardship Council (MCSC). MCSC formed in 2018 with community leaders from both sides of the mine issue to ensure that the mining project never compromises the core values of watershed conservation and community vitality.

MCSC is currently negotiating with the Company a long-term Community Benefits Agreement that will be binding on both parties and make sure that both entities work together through local representation regardless of Company ownership.  They expect completion of the agreement in 2023.
