AGENCY: ACTION: Notice of Record of Decision. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) has prepared a Record of Decision (ROD) for the Westmoreland San Juan Mining, LLC (SJCC) proposed Deep Lease Extension (DLE) at the existing San Juan Mine (Project) in San Juan County, New Mexico.

Background on the Project As established by the Mineral Leasing Act (MLA) of 1920, the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) of 1977, as amended (30 U.S.C. 1201– 1328), and the Cooperative Agreement between the State of New Mexico and the Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) in accordance with Section 523(c) of SMCRA (30 U.S.C. 1273(c)), SJCC’s Permit Application Package (PAP) must be reviewed by the OSMRE and a mining plan modification approved by the Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management (ASLM) before SJCC may significantly disturb the environment in order to develop the DLE Federal Coal Lease Tract NM–99144. The NM Mining and Minerals Division (NM MMD) is the SMCRA regulatory authority principally responsible for reviewing and approving PAPs. Under the MLA, the OSMRE is responsible for making a recommendation to the ASLM about whether the proposed mining plan modification should be approved, disapproved, or approved with conditions (30 CFR 746.13). The NM MMD approved the PAP for the DLE on October 22, 1999. The ASLM first approved the mining plan modification for DLE Federal Coal Lease Tract NM– 99144 on January 17, 2008, after receiving a recommendation from the OSMRE for approval that included a Finding of No Significant Impact signed by the OSMRE in 2007 and the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) 1998 decision record on an amendment to the 1988 Farmington Resource Management Plan to include Federal Coal Lease Tract NM–99144. The OSMRE’s NEPA analysis supporting the 2008 mining plan modification was challenged in the U.S. District Court of New Mexico. WildEarth Guardians v. U.S. Office of Surface Mining et al., Case 1:14–cv–00112–RJ– CG (D. NM) (amended petition filed March 14, 2014). On August 31, 2016, the Court granted the OSMRE’s Motion for Voluntary Remand, which remanded the matter to the OSMRE to prepare an EIS within 3 years of the Court’s order. The Final EIS available today has been prepared in accordance with the voluntary remand. The San Juan Mine has contractual obligations to deliver approximately 3 million tons of coal per year to the San Juan Generating Station (Generating Station) from 2008 through 2022. Mining activities within the DLE have been ongoing since the OSMRE approval in 2008 and continue presently. Per the voluntary remand, mining operations within the DLE are E:\FR\FM\01MYN1.SGM 01MYN1
