Project Description:
Project Description: Seventy-nine Abandoned Mine Land (AML) hazards located in Humboldt, Pershing and Washoe Counties, Nevada, are to be closed. The sites have had cultural and biological surveys completed. Bat surveys were recently completed and there is a need for bat compatible closures for up to 6 of the 85 locations. The remaining 79 sites would be closed permanently by backfilling with waste rock materials, and/or foam closure. This is a joint project between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) and Nevada Division of Minerals (NDOM), for this project we have identified the types of hazards in 3 categories: Adits/Inclines/Declines, Shafts, and Other. The identified hazards associated with each type are: BRFO Closure Area: Adits/Inclines/Declines: PE-552, PE-555, PE-324, PE-326, PE-327, PE-328, PE-330, PE-331, PE-333, PE-338, PE-342, PE-343, PE-344, PE-345, PE-349, PE-350, PE-352, PE-353, PE-357, PE-808, WA-297, WA-298, WA-299, WA-300, WA-301, WA-302, (26 total) Shafts: HU-592, PE-320, PE-321, PE-322, PE-323, PE-329, PE-332, PE-334, PE-336, PE-337, PE-339, PE-340, PE-341, PE-346, PE-347, PE-348, PE-351, PE-354, PE-355, PE-356, PE-547, PE-548, PE-549, PE-549, PE-550, PE-551, PE-553, PE-554, PE-556, PE-557, PE-558, PE559, PE-560, PE-807, PE-810, PE-811, PE-899, PE-902, PE-903, PE-905, (40 total) Other: PE-901, PE-904, PE-906, PE-907, PE-908, PE-909, PE-910, (7total) Black Rock Field Office total: 73 Long Canyon Closure Area: Adits/Inclines/Declines: PE-608, PE615 (2 total) Shafts: PE-606, PE-607, PE-610, PE-614 (4 total) Other: PE-604, PE-604, PE-611, PE-612, PE-613, PE-### (6 total) Long Canyon total: 12 All closure work would be completed by the BLM/NDOM and or their respective contractors. Existing access roads would be used. Where no roads access the sites, materials would be brought in via helicopter. Closures would occur over the next several months depending on winter conditions, when project activities would be slowed by snow.
