The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District, Stillwater and Sierra Front Field Offices have drafted the preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed Fluid Mineral Leasing within six areas of the Carson City District.  The public is invited to comment on the plan through May 10, 2014.

The BLM is proposing to lease some or all of the oil, gas and geothermal resources at sites located in six selected areas within Churchill, Lyon, Mineral, and Nye County, Nevada. There are 30 proposed parcels for leasing in the upcoming September 2014 Oil and Gas Lease Sale, which cover an area of approximately 56,269 acres. The pending lease applications encompass BLM managed lands that are open to fluid mineral leasing.

Links to the EA and related documents are located on the BLM website at: http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field/blm_information/nepa.html.

Interested individuals may send written comments to BLM Carson City District Office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, Carson City, NV 89701, Attn: Dave Schroeder, or submit comments through the EA webpage.  Comments may also be sent via Fax to 775-885-6147.
