Rio Algom Mining LLC is proposing to install up to seven additional groundwater monitoring wells and four core holes, two of which may also be converted into monitoring wells, in order to better characterize subsurface conditions, BLM officials said.
The BLM is seeking written comments on issues or concerns to be considered during the planning process. The proposal is available on BLM’s ePlanning website at: http://go.usa.gov/xY3aH. Scoping comments will be accepted electronically through the ePlanning website or by mail until Aug. 29.
Written comments may be mailed to: Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office, Attn: Minerals Program, Rio Algom, 82 E. Dogwood Ave., Moab, UT 84532.
Individuals can also participate in the proposed project’s National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 process. Those who wish to provide input in this process must submit written requests to Don Montoya, archaeologist for the BLM-Moab Field Office, explaining the interest in the project and/or concerns with potential effects related to historic properties from the project.
