The Final Environmental Impact Statement has been produced in its entirety the analysis originally presented in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (issued February 11, 2000). The Final Environmental Impact Statement analyzes the direct, indirect and cumulative impacts related to expansion of existing mine facilities (pits, overburden dumps & heap leach pads) and development of the 8-North and 5-North deposits. Development of these deposits includes construction of two new pits, overburden disposal areas, additional heap leach facilities, new tailing impoundment, drainage diversions, haul and exploration roads and ancillary facilities.
Alternatives analyzed include the Proposed Action, No Action, and the 8-South Partial Pit Backfill alternative. The Bureau of Land Management's preferred alternative is the 8-South Partial Pit backfill as described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement. The Final Environmental Impact Statement also responds to issues raised during the scoping period and comments received on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement.Start Signature
