The BLM Ely District, Bristlecone Field Office has issued the Record of Decision for GRP Gold Rock, LLC’s Gold Rock Mine Project to be located about 50 miles west of Ely, in White Pine County, Nev., or in the same geographic area as the reclaimed and closed Easy Junior Mine. The Project was originally proposed by Midway Gold U.S. Inc., and was purchased by GRP Gold Rock LLC (GRP). GRP Gold Rock, LLC is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fiore Gold (US) Inc.

The Bristlecone Field Manager’s decision is to select the Preferred Alternative, which is a combination of elements of the Northwest Main Access Route Alternative, Southern Power Line Route; the Modified County Road Re-Route Alternative; and the Western Tailings Storage Facility Alternative; along with the applicant-committed environmental protection measures included in the Plan of Operations, and the mitigation measures specified in Chapter 4 and Appendix 4A of the Final EIS for the Project. The Preferred Alternative is the alternative that best fulfills the agency's statutory mission and responsibilities, considering economic, environmental, technical, and other factors. The BLM has determined that implementation of this decision with the identified monitoring and mitigation measures will not cause unnecessary or undue degradation of the public lands.

This decision may be appealed to the Interior Board of Land Appeals (Board), U. S. Department of the Interior (DOI) Office of Hearing and Appeals in accordance with the regulations contained in 43 CFR, Part 4.



Project Summary

The Gold Rock Mine Project will include construction and operation of new facilities. Construction and operation of the project will result in approximately 3,901 acres of authorized disturbance, which is located entirely on public land administered by the BLM. The project will generate 300 jobs during construction and 15-250 jobs during peak mining operations to the rural economy. The life of the mine is expected to be 10 years.
