Environmental Assessment,Finding of No Significant Impact DOI-BLM-OR-L050-2012-0009-EA Planning Completed
The Bureau of Land Management has analyzed a proposal and one alternative to authorize the expansion of the existing perlite quarry at Tucker Hill. The BLM initially approved a mining Plan of Operations (PoO) for the quarry, based upon an analysis of about 23 acres of surface disturbance described in an Environmental Impact Statement completed in 1996. The current operation consists of mining perlite from the quarry, crushing the ore on-site, and then transporting the ore to a plant in Lakeview for further processing and shipping. The EA contains an analysis of the effects of approving an amendment to the PoO which would authorize expanding the existing perlite quarry to include an additional estimated 47 acres of surface disturbance over a 15-year period of time. The quarry is located about 39 miles northwest of Lakeview in central Lake County, Oregon.

Finding of No Significant Impact,Decision Record DOI-BLM-OR-L050-2012-0009-EA Planning Completed
The BLM has completed an analysis of a proposal to amend a Plan of Operations (PoO) to expand the existing perlite quarry at Tucker Hill. The quarry is located about 39 miles northwest of Lakeview in central Lake County, Oregon. The BLM originally approved a PoO based upon an analysis of about 23 acres of surface disturbance in an EIS completed in 1996. The BLM is now issuing a decision to adopt the PoO amendment and allow expansion of the current operation by 47 acres based upon a new analysis contained in an EA.
