Freeport Minerals Corporation (FMC) is requesting a No Further Action (NFA) determination from ADEQ for the Morenci Schools Site located at 473 Stadium Drive in Morenci, Arizona.1 The site is 72 acres and comprised of an elementary, middle, and high school in addition to a school district administration building, bus barn, parking lots, play areas, and sports fields. The schools were built on a former tailings pond that was once operated by the Morenci Mine.

The site is currently managed under the ADEQ Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP). FMC sampled soil/tailings to assess whether the material poses an unacceptable risk to human health and the environment. Arsenic was identified as the primary contaminant of concern. The site-wide mean and 95 percent upper confidence limits on the mean concentrations calculated for surface soil/tailings, and for soil/tailings across sampled depths are below the Soil Remediation Level of 10 mg/kg. The resulting risk estimate was also below the de minimis cancer risk threshold of 1 x 10-6. Regulatory closure of the site is based on a risk evaluation for the current property use.

A determination of NFA means that no further action shall be taken by ADEQ to remediate or require remediation of the site or portion of the site covered by the no further action determination, except in limited circumstances described in statute | View A.R.S. 49-181(E) >
