At Highland Copper, we are committed to environmental stewardship and to designing, developing, operating, and eventually closing our sites in a highly responsible manner. Through our projects in Michigan, we strive to develop a source of responsibly produced domestic copper—a critical material recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy—that supports the transition to a lower carbon economy and builds the United States’ resilience to potential supply chain disruptions.
As stewards of the Lake Superior Watershed, we are committed to proactive water management. Moreover, we are dedicated to strong environmental monitoring practices and continued compliance with all our environmental obligations. All mining has impacts on the environment. Our goal is to minimize the potential impacts of our projects by preserving ecosystems through proven mitigation methods and establishing conservation areas wherever necessary.
