A Tucson company has restarted its efforts to turn the giant pile of copper slag near the Verde Valley Fairgrounds into industrial products — and 15 to 18 general manufacturing jobs, which will benefit local workers and the economy.

Tom Hurkett, operations manager for a mineral recovery company, talks Thursday, June 7, about the uses his company will have for material from the massive slag pile in Cottonwood. Hurkett  estimated it would take about 18 years to work through the pile converting the recovered minerals into industrial material.Tom Hurkett, operations manager for the company specializing in asphalt, roofing and abrasives, said his company had planned to begin breaking down the slag and shipping it out by now, but the economic downturn in 2008 put plans on hold.

Now, with the national economy showing some signs of recovery, and with good prospects for the future, Hurkett’s company is ready to get to work in Cottonwood.

“We essentially put [the project] on the shelf, and now we’re taking it off the shelf,” Hurkett said. “In all likelihood, we’re looking at starting up in 2014.”
