BLM issues final Environmental Assessment for the Greystone Mine Road Project


Battle Mountain, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Mount Lewis Field Office has issued the final Environmental Assessment (EA) for a proposed Road Project for the Greystone Mine.

M-I LLC has submitted a Plan of Development to construct a temporary (ten years) 100 foot wide, 2,748 foot long access road within an existing roadbed that would be located 28 miles south-southeast of Battle Mountain, Nevada. The roadway would be covered with road material (chert) from the mine. Under this Plan, M-I LLC proposes to widen the current road and to re-route the crossing of the Mill Creek Road, for a total of 4.7 acres of new surface disturbance. At the end of the ten-year period, the road would be reclaimed back to the current route and dimensions. The road would be used year-round.

The comment period ended June 19, 2014. The Final EA may be viewed at: http://bit.ly/1mP6AXM or a printed copy is available at the Battle Mountain District Office at 50 Bastian Road, Battle Mountain, NV. Questions and written comments should be mailed to Jon Kramer at the Battle Mountain Office or emailed to jkramer@blm.gov.



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.
