Fight over Resolution Copper Mine drags on ... and both sides expect more

Protests against the Resolution Copper mine near Oak Flat have been going for years, as shown in this 2015 file photo from a rally at the Capitol. Opponents say the mine will harm the environment and sacred sites, supporters say those issues have been dealt with and the mine will bring jobs and economic development. Few expect the fight to end soon. (File photo by Jamie Cochran/Cronkite News)
