BLM Extends Comment Period on Kiewit Mine Proposal



The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Salt Lake Field Office is extending the comment period on the Kiewit Mine Project proposal for two days due to a broken Internet link included in the original press release for this project.


The proposal includes an open pit mine and waste rock disposal facility on public land, as well as cyanide heap leach processing facilities on adjacent patented land. The proposed project would create approximately 43 acres of surface disturbance on public lands. An electronic copy of the Environmental Assessment (EA) can be found on the Salt Lake Field Office website at:

Comments which contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response, but may be considered in the BLM decision-making process
