BLM SEEKS PUBLIC COMMENTS ON PLAN TO IMPROVE THE
WET GEORGIA GULCH ROAD 
 
The Dillon Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comment on a Plan of Operation submitted by Mr. L. J. Bardswich. Mr. Bardswich is proposing to haul approximately 15,000 tons of waste rock from an unpatented mining claim located on public land managed by the Forest Service.  
 
He proposes to use the Wet Georgia Gulch road and cross approximately 2.5 miles of BLM land and approximately one half mile of Montana State School Trust land. He is proposing to slightly widen and improve the road located approximately five miles north of Sheridan, MT and seven miles east of Twin Bridges. The Forest Service has approved the operation.
 
Interested individuals and groups need to submit comments and issues by April 23 to be analyzed in the environmental assessment (EA). For a map and more detailed information or to submit comments, contact Robert  Gunderson, Dillon Field Office geologist, at 1005 Selway Drive, Dillon, MT 59725, phone 683-8000.
