A very smart move by ASARCO. This is just like the tobacco the government will be the #1 beneficary of long term on going environmental harm necessary to make money to fund the settlement so the government will have a very strong disincentive to bring any future enforcement actions against the company. If the government does, all the company has to do is say they can't pay the government if they have to cleanup and you know the goverment would much rather have money to operate than a clean environment. A brilliant move by a smart company!
