The proposed RMP amendment and land sale involve approximately 450 acres of public land in the vicinity of the Denton-Rawhide Mine in Mineral County, Nevada. The purpose of a sale would be to consolidate lands within and surrounding the open pit mine area into private ownership for future post-mine development, including use of the area as a landfill. As part of the RMP amendment, an EA will be prepared to analyze designation of the public land for disposal and sale of the land. Comments will be accepted throughout the RMP amendment and EA process. Prior to a sale offer, a Notice of Realty Action will be prepared and published in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2. The plan amendment will fulfill the needs and obligations set forth by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), and BLM management policies. Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the Carson City Field Office during regular business hours 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays, and may be published as part of the EA.
