The Wyoming BLM State Office is revising its webpage.  Accordingly, earlier documents such as the Draft EIS that have been available through the State Office or Lander webpages are now be available through the specific project's eplanning site.  These documents are also in the Document Tab.  Maps associated with the FEIS are available under the Map tab on the left.  The BLM plans to upload the GIS data for the project to the Data subtab, under the Map tab.
The BLM signed the Record of Decision authorizing the Plan of Operations on January 6, 2017.  Please see the Documents Tab on the left.

The Lander Field Office (LFO) has prepared an environmental impact statement (EIS) for a proposal from Energy Fuels Resources (USA) Inc. to develop uranium resources using conventional mining techniques (open pit and underground) and on-site heap leach extraction (or off-site conventional milling at an existing mill) in the Crooks Gap-Green Mountain uranium mining district, 60 miles southeast of Lander, Wyoming.  The Project is within the active State of Wyoming Permit to Mine 381C administered by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality-Land Quality Division (WDEQ-LQD). Energy Fuels’ revised application to Permit to Mine 381C was approved in July 2015. This project is a federal undertaking and requires Section 106 consultation under the National Historic Preservation Act.
