BLM seeks comments on Denton-Rawhide Mine Land Sale

The Bureau of Land Management, Carson City Field Office, is requesting public review and comment on the Denton-Rawhide Mine Land Sale Proposed Plan Amendment Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for management of certain public lands in north Mineral County.

The BLM has scheduled presentations for the public at the Mineral and Churchill County commission meetings on the following dates: June 6, Mineral County Commission, 105 S. “A” Street, Hawthorne and June 7, Churchill County Commission, 155 N. Taylor St. No. 145, Fallon. Refer to the County Commission agendas for scheduled times.

Kennecott Rawhide Mining Co. requested BLM conduct a sale of selected parcels of public land within and adjacent to fee land owned by the mining company at the Denton-Rawhide Mine.

Public land in that area is not currently identified for disposal in the Carson City Field Office Consolidated Resource Management Plan and requires an amendment to the plan to change that designation. These parcels of land meet the criteria but have not been designated for disposal.

Acquisition of the public land parcels by the mining company would result in consolidation of isolated tracts of public land into private ownership creating a contiguous block of private land. Consolidation of land ownership in the mine area would allow the mine to pursue sustainable development options or alternative post-mine land uses unrelated to mining.
