BLM seeks input on Nevada Royal Jasper Quarry Project
Carson City, Nev.--The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District, Stillwater Field Office has made available an Environmental Assessment (EA) on a proposal from Neva-Rite LLC to develop, process, and reclaim a quarry pit operation in Churchill County, about 15 miles east of Fallon, Nev. Neva-Rite, LLC is seeking approval for a mineral material negotiated sale contract on public lands administered by the BLM. The public is invited to submit comments through August 25, 2013, prior to issuing the final EA and decision.
The material sale contract would allow Neva-Rite LLC to extract approximately 200,000 cubic yards of material within a 19.7 acre area of public land over a five-year period, including plans for possible future consecutive negotiated sales within the project area in a phased development of the quarry pit.
Proposed development of the Royal Jasper Quarry would consist of:
The projected quarry life is five years with possible future negotiated sale contracts. The material would be processed on site and then shipped off site for market sale. Reclamation and re-vegetation of disturbed areas would be completed at the end of the contract.

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 multiple-use mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2012, activities on public lands generated $4.6 billion in revenue, much of which was shared with the States where the activities occurred. In addition, public lands contributed more than $112 billion to the U.S. economy and helped support more than 500,000 jobs.
