Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES 42660 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 144 / Thursday, July 27, 2006 / Notices involvement when the mine permit application is processed. The proposed Red Cliff Mine is located approximately 11 miles north of the towns of Mack and Loma, Colorado, and 1.5 miles east of Colorado State Highway 139. CAM is proposing a new portal and associated facilities to extract low-sulfur coal from Federal Coal Leases C–0125515 and C–0125516 and from several potential new Federal leases as well as a small amount of private coal. The proposed railroad line would traverse approximately 9.5 miles of Federal land, and include one crossing of State Highway 139 and approximately 5 miles of private land. The EIS will analyze the potential impacts associated with the construction and operation of facilities proposed in CAM’s Right-of-Way and Land Use Applications, and other potential impacts associated with the Red Cliff Mine project. Citizens are invited to help identify issues or concerns and to provide input on the proposed action. Alternatives will be developed through the public involvement process and analyzed in the EIS. A company affiliated with CAM is currently mining approximately 280,000 tons of coal per year from the nearby McClane Canyon Mine. CAM’s production from the Red Cliff Mine would be approximately 8 million tons per year. CAM is proposing to load the coal onto rail cars at the mine site and ship it to coal consumers. CAM would recover this coal by mining the Cameo Seam using both room and pillar and longwall mining techniques. As is consistent with the goals of the 2001 National Energy Policy report and the Energy Policy Act of 2005, this project would help meet the existing and future domestic market demand for low-sulfur coal, thereby supporting clean coal initiatives; and would encourage and facilitate meeting national demands for electricity from a domestic source of energy. The BLM will analyze the potential impacts of the proposed action and no action alternatives, as well as other reasonable alternatives that could include optional approaches for activities proposed in the project area. The alternatives will be further defined as part of the scoping and planning process. Consultation with tribal governments will be accomplished as part of the planning process. Section 106 consultations with the Colorado State Historic Preservation Officer will be conducted as required by the National Historic Preservation Act. U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service Section 7 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:46 Jul 26, 2006 Jkt 208001 consultations will be conducted as required by the Endangered Species Act. BLM will consult with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as required by the Clean Water Act. Dated: June 5, 2006. Catherine Robertson, Field Manager. [FR Doc.
