This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to analyze and disclose the potential environmental effects of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) approving and granting an underground right-of-way (the Emery Deep Mine Access Right-of-Way or ROW) to Bronco Utah Operations, LLC (Bronco) for access through unleased federal coal. This access will allow for mining of Bronco owned coal (fee coal), then to underground coal within land owned by the State of Utah, administered by its School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA). This mining of coal on SITLA will be for Lease ML-51745-OBA.
An updated version of the Bronco ROW EA was uploaded on 12/12/2018. The comment period will still run through 1/10/2019.
