BATTLE MOUNTAIN – The Bureau of Land Management, Mount Lewis Field Office, has completed its analysis of U.S. Gold Corp.’s Keystone Exploration Project and has provided the environmental assessment for a 30-day public comment period.
U.S. Gold is proposing to conduct surface exploration drilling operations on its Keystone Exploration Project to explore for precious metal mineral resources on public and private lands located in Eureka County approximately 54 miles southeast of Battle Mountain.
The environmental assessment included coordination with the Nevada Department of Wildlife, as well as U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, tribal governments and other interested parties.
Alternatives in the EA examined the expansion’s range of potential issues such as cultural resources, soils, water resources, air quality, hazardous or solid wastes, vegetation, grazing, noise, visual resources, invasive and non-native species, wetlands and riparian zones, wildlife, migratory birds, special status species, recreation, wilderness, and cumulative effects.
The EA and other relevant documents are available on the BLM ePlanning webpage at https://go.usa.gov/xU5up, and hardcopies of these documents are available for review at the Mount Lewis field office, 50 Bastian Road, during regular business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
