Draft Environmental Assessment Released
The Bureau of Land Management released a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) on December 20, 2018 that analyzes the potential effects of renewing hardrock mineral leases, which include updated stipulations to protect natural resources, in the Superior National Forest. The leases are located in the Rainy River Watershed near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The EA includes updated stipulations identified by the U.S. Forest Service to be imposed on the leases in order to mitigate possible risks to natural resources.

The draft Environmental Assessment is available for a 30-day public review and comment period from December 20, 2018 to January 30, 2019. To see this document and to provide comments, please click Documents on the left side of this page.

Wisconsin Ave., Ste. 200, Milwaukee, WI 53202.  Prior to including your address, phone number, email address or other personally identifiable information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personally identifiable information – may be made publicly available at any time.
