The original Notice of Availability was published September 30, 2006, and provided for comments on the Ring of Fire Draft RMP/EIS to be received through December 29, 2005. During the public comment period it was discovered that the maps depicting the proposed Neacola Mountains Area of Critical Environmental Concern contained errors.
