LAND EXCHANGE documents
April 2013 :: Notice of Exchange Proposal (NOEP)
The Thompson Creek Mining Co. proposes to exchange 80 acres of private land in Bannock Co. and 775 acres of private land in Custer Co. for surface and mineral estate on 5,144 acres of Federal land in Custer Co., under provisions in Sec. 206 of FLPMA.
The proposed exchange would require amendment of the BLM resource management plan (RMP) for the Challis Field Office, to identify the Federal lands involved as suitable for exchange. The environmental effects of the plan amendment are analyzed in the EIS.
The NOEP contains legal descriptions of the lands involved in the proposed exchange, objectives for the exchange, and ways to express concerns or comment on the proposal.
