  1. I am not yet aware of a news feed devoted to the Rosemont Copper Project. I have been using "Google Alerts", a feature available to anyone who has signed up for a Google Account, which scans the web and automatically emails links based upon a search term you provide. The search term phrase I’ve been using, "rosemont mine", seems to be effective.
