Notice of Availability of the Draft Environmental Impact
Statement for the Bald Mountain Mine North Operations Area Project in
White Pine County, Nevada

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of availability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with section 102(2)(c) of the National
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and 43 CFR 3809, the Bureau of Land
Management (BLM) Ely District, Nevada has prepared a Draft
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a proposed expansion of the
existing Plans of Operation for Barrick Gold U.S. Inc.'s Bald Mountain
Mine and Mooney Basin Mine located in White Pine County, Nevada. The
two existing mines would be combined into one new expanded operation
which would be called the North Operations Area. The Draft EIS analyzes
the environmental effects of the Proposed Action, two action
alternatives, and the No Action Alternative.

DATES: Comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted for 45 days after the
date this Notice of Availability (NOA) is published in the Federal
Register. BLM will host public meetings in Ely, Elko, and Eureka,
Nevada, to provide the public with an opportunity to review the
proposal and project information. Federal, state, and local agencies,
and other individuals or organizations that may be interested in, or
affected by, the BLM's decision on this proposed Plan of Operation are
invited to participate in these public meetings. The BLM will notify
the public of the meeting dates, times, and locations at least 15 days
prior to the meetings. Announcements of the public meeting will be made
by news release to the media, individual letter mailings, and posting
on the BLM Web site: http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/ely_field_
office.html. Comments received on the Draft EIS will be considered in
preparing the Final EIS. Documents pertinent to this proposal may be
examined at the Ely District Office.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods:
     E-mail: lynn_bjorklund@nv.blm.gov
     Fax: 775-189-1910
     Mail: Bureau of Land Management, Ely District, Attention:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Barrick Gold U.S. Inc. has submitted a
proposal to expand and combine their existing Bald Mountain and Mooney
Basin Mines into one project area to be administered under one Plan of
Operation called North Operations Area. The mines are located
approximately 65 miles northwest of Ely, Nevada. This proposed
expansion is entirely on unpatented mining claims on BLM-administered
public land.
    The Proposed North Operations Area would include 4,160 acres of
previously permitted disturbance and 3,920 acres of new disturbance,
for a total of 8,080 acres. The project would consist of extending
existing open pits, expanding existing rock disposal areas and heap
leach facilities, construction of a truck shop, additional exploration,
concurrent reclamation and continuing operation of existing facilities.
    Individual respondents may request confidentiality. Before
including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal
identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire
comment, which includes your personal identifying information, may be
made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your
comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying
information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. All
submissions from organizations, businesses, and from individuals
identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations
or businesses will be available for public inspection in their
entirety. The minutes and list of attendees for each public meeting
will be available to the public and open for 60 days after the meeting
to any participants who wish to clarify the views they expressed. All
comments will be available to the public for review at the BLM Ely
District Office throughout the EIS process.

    Authority: 43 CFR 3809.

Michael J. Herder,
Acting District Manager, Ely District Office.
