ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 [NEPA, 102(2)(C)] and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, notice is hereby given that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Pocatello Field Office, will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to consider approval of the proposed Blackfoot Bridge Mine and Reclamation Plan (MRP) for proposed operations at the Blackfoot Bridge Phosphate Mine, Caribou County, Idaho, located approximately 9 miles northeast of Soda Springs, Idaho. DATES: To receive full consideration, written comments concerning specific issues and the scope of the analysis described in this Notice should be received within 30 days of the last public scoping meeting. The scoping process for this EIS will include mailings, news releases or legal notices, and public scoping meetings. The dates, times, and specific locations of the scoping meetings will be announced through local media at least 15 days in advance. ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Jerry Koblitz, Greystone Environmental Consultants, Inc., 5231 Quebec Street, PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5877 Greenwood Village, CO 80111. They may also be submitted in writing at one of the public meetings or by e-mail to jkoblitz@greystone.us. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kyle Free, Bureau of Land Management, Pocatello Field Office, 4350 Cliffs Drive, Pocatello, Idaho 83204, phone (208) 478–6368, fax (208) 478–6376. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The project area includes 1,447 acres. The proposed mining operations would utilize private lands and public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management. This activity is in conformance with the Pocatello Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (BLM, 1987). Mining is proposed to take place on Federal Phosphate Leases I–05613 and I–013709 which comprise a total of 631 acres. Proposed lease modifications included within the proposed project area would add an additional 200 acres to the existing I–05613 lease. Some offlease ancillary disturbances within the 1,447-acre project area such as roads and overburden disposal sites are also proposed. The company, P4 Production, LLC, herein after referred to as P4, has submitted the MRP for BLM to consider. P4 must receive approval of the MRP and obtain additional federal and state permits prior to mining under the proposed mine plan. This EIS would evaluate effects to the human environment including the potential effects of selenium and other contaminants. It is anticipated that the Idaho Departments of Lands and Environmental Quality will participate in preparation of the EIS as cooperating agencies because of their special expertise and responsibilities for mining, reclamation, and the environment. The MRP proposes a new open pit mining operation on federal leases I–05613 and I–013709. In addition, external waste rock piles, a topsoil stockpile, haul road, and runoff/ sediment control and other facilities would be constructed. Mining would include best management practices for control and prevention of releases of sediment and dissolved contaminants such as selenium to nearby surface and groundwaters, such as the Blackfoot River, which is located as close as 585ft from the proposed excavation site but is believed to be hydrologically separated. The excavation site would not be visible from the Blackfoot River. The proposed open pits would be located along a ridge and would cross the upper drainage of an intermittent E:\FR\FM\03FEN1.SGM 03FEN1
