The Pershing County Road Department (PCRD) has requested a Free Use Permit (FUP) for the removal of mineral materials from the Four Corners pit located in T33N, R32E, section 22, Pershing County, Nevada. This FUP would be in a location that has not been previously authorized by the BLM, however, there is an existing gravel pit that has been initiated in trespass. The pit access would be though the National Conservation Area (NCA) boundary, but the removal of mineral materials would be conducted outside of the NCA boundary. The material removed from this pit would be used for the maintenance of local county roads. Material would be mined using a front-end loader or backhoe and hauled using semi trucks with belly-dump trailers. PCRD would likely process material using a screening plant to better sort the gravel prior to placement on the roads. The permit term would be for up to 10 years from the date of issuance, or the removal of 50,000 cubic yards, whichever comes first.
