In 2002 Eagle Picher Minerals Inc. (EP Minerals predecessor) filed an exploration plan to drill test holes to sample ore in Hidden Valley and North Kelly Field. They conducted the samphng during the summer of 2002. The samples were tested to characterize the diatomite. These were destructive tests, so the sample material cannot be reused. Since then EP Minerals' (EP) markets for diatomite have changed and additional data on ore characteristics are required. On May 15, 2011 EP submitted a request to Burns BLM to conduct sample drilling at 27 points in Hidden Valley and 17 points in North Kelly Field in the same areas that were sampled in 2002.
