NEVADA RAE GOLD ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT AVAILABLE AT BLM
The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Battle Mountain Field Office, has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the environmental effects of Nevada Rae Gold’s proposal to use dry placer techniques to mine for gold. Nevada Rae Gold’s Black Rock Canyon Dry Placer Mine and Mill proposed project would disturb up to 117 acres, with less than eight acres being mined at any one time. The projected mine life would be for a period of up to 10 years and would involve concurrent reclamation. The project location is approximately three miles west of the town of Crescent Valley, in Lander County, Nevada.
The public is invited to submit comments, ask questions or receive a copy of the EA by contacting Jon Sherve, Hydrologist, Battle Mountain Field Office, 50 Bastian Road, Battle Mountain, NV 89820, (775) 635-4164. Comments should be postmarked or otherwise delivered by 4:30 p.m., December 29, 2004, for full consideration.
