CASA GRANDE, A.Z.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elim Mining Incorporated (“Elim” or the “Company”), a private company, announces the execution of a purchase agreement to acquire the historic Sacaton Mine from the ASARCO Environmental Custodial Trust. This purchase is the first step in a process that will bring high-paying jobs, create economic opportunities, and put an otherwise abandoned site to use, while showcasing state-of-the-art environmental stewardship and reclamation practices. The property, which will be called the Cactus Mine, is located just west of Casa Grande and north of the Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway.

Our company endeavors to focus on three things: economic development, environmental protection, and community partnerships. While ensuring a thriving surrounding community, another top priority will always be the health and safety of all employees and contractors; this focus is what we call the ‘Elim Way’.”
