SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: P4 Production, LLC (P4 Production), a subsidiary of Bayer AG, developed and submitted a Mine and Reclamation Plan (M&RP) application (the proposed action in the Final EIS) for the Caldwell Canyon Mine. The proposed action reflects P4 Production’s desire to exercise its exclusive mineral development rights granted by the United States Federal phosphate leases IDI–000002, IDI–014080, and IDI– 013738; and by the State of Idaho mineral lease E07959. P4 Production proposes to construct and operate a new 1,559-acre surface mine with associated haul roads, a rail shipping point, and other ancillary facilities. The mine would place waste rock into the nearby inactive Dry Valley Mine pit on Federal phosphate lease IDI–014184. Modifications to enlarge the phosphate lease boundaries are necessary to recover all ore that exists adjacent to the leased deposit. The M&RP requests authorization for a related haul road across BLM-managed land as described in the Final EIS. The mine would operate for approximately 40 years. The Final EIS fully evaluates alternatives to the proposed action, including a No Action alternative, and addresses issues identified during initial scoping for the EIS, from public comments on the Draft EIS, and from the BLM’s analysis. In accordance with 40 CFR 1502.14(e), the BLM has identified Alternative 1 in the Final EIS as the preferred alternative. The BLM will make decisions to either approve, approve with modification, or deny the M&RP application. In addition, the BLM will decide whether to modify (enlarge) the lease boundaries and grant authorization for a haul road across Federal land. The Notice of Availability of the Draft EIS published on November 30, 2018, initiating a 45-day public comment period. The public comments resulted in additional information regarding water quality and quantity, wildlife, habitat conversion, noise, safety, socioeconomics, tribal interests, jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 May 16, 2019 Jkt 247001 cultural resources, vegetation, visual quality, mine reclamation, financial assurance, mitigation measures, and environmental monitoring of mine operations being included in the Final EIS.

Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Relay Service (FRS) at 1–800–877–8339 to contact Ms. Ward during normal business hours. The FRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to leave a message or question. You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Missoula Draft RMP/Draft EIS covers approximately 163,000 acres of BLMmanaged public lands and 267,000 acres of Federal mineral estate in western Montana in Flathead, Granite, Lake, Lincoln, Mineral, Missoula, Powell, Ravalli, and Sanders counties. Over 99 percent of the BLM-managed public lands are in Granite, Missoula and Powell counties. The planning area is currently managed under the Garnet Resource Area RMP (1986). This planning effort would update management guidance from the Garnet Resource Area RMP, as amended, and create a new Missoula RMP. The planning effort is needed to identify goals, objectives, and management actions for the BLMmanaged public lands. Public involvement opportunities occurred during scoping to help identify planning issues that directed the formulation of alternatives and framed the scope of analysis in the Draft RMP/Draft EIS. Key issues identified included forest vegetation management, wildland fire resiliency and management, forest products, Threatened and Endangered species management, big game habitat management, livestock grazing, access, recreation management, and special designation management including the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. This plan also considers lands with wilderness characteristics, wild and scenic rivers, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs), lands and realty, minerals, and visual resources. The Draft RMP/Draft EIS evaluates three alternatives in detail. Alternative A is the No Action Alternative, which is a continuation of current management in the existing Garnet Resource Area RMP (1986). E:\FR\FM\17MYN1.SGM 17MYN1
