Environmental Assessment
Welcome to the EPlanning website for the Mother Lode Exploration Plan of Operations Environmental Assessment. 
The Mother Lode Exploration Plan of Operations (EPO) Environmental Assessment (EA) is available for public comment from March 25, 2020 until April 23, 2020 at 4:30 pm Pacific Daylight Time.  
Please submit comments on the EA to the BLM addresses listed in the "Contact Information" link on the left side of this webpage or using the comment submission link at left.
Corvus Gold Nevada, Inc. (CGN) is proposing to continue exploring the Mother Lode Project area for gold using reverse circulation and core drilling techniques. The project area is located in Nye County, seven miles east of Beatty, Nevada.  CGN is currently authorized to conduct up to five acres of exploration disturbance under one exploration notice, NVN-95622. In addition to building drill pads, overland travel, laydown areas, building access roads, and utilizing existing water supply wells, CGN has applied for a right of way grant to access the site using the existing Fluorspar Canyon Road. This proposed project would increase ground disturbance from five to up to 145 acres over the 261-acre project area.

Legal Location: Mount Diablo Meridian, Nevada;
T. 12 S., R. 47 E., Sections: 12-17; 23, and 24;
T. 12 S., R. 48 E., Sections: 4-7, and 18; and
T. 11 S., R. 48 E., Section: 33.

The BLM has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze potential effects from this ground disturbing activity.

Public comments are always greatly appreciated and are an important step in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.

Comments on the proposed action and environmental analysis should be sent to the BLM Tonopah Field Office, Attn: Melissa Jennings, PO Box 911, Tonopah, NV 89049; or emailed to: mjennings@blm.gov; or submitted to the link at left.
