BLM Seeks Public Input on Angel Wing Mine Exploration


ELKO, Nev.--The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Wells Field Office is seeking public input until March 20 for the development of an Environmental Assessment for Miranda U.S.A., Inc. (Miranda) Plan of Operations for Angel Wing Exploration Project.   
 
Miranda, working jointly with Ramelius Nevada LLC, proposes to increase surface disturbance at their existing Angel Wing exploration from 3.1 acres to 60 acres within a project boundary of approximately 818 acres. The surface disturbance will include: drilling; geologic and geophysical mapping; construction of exploration roads, drill sites, and sumps; road maintenance within the Project Area and the Project access roads; and reclamation of Project-related surface disturbance.
 
This proposed project would be located on public lands south of the White Rock Mountain area, about 60 miles north of West Wendover, Nev.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
