SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The applicant, LNC, proposes to construct, operate, reclaim, and eventually close VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:20 Jan 17, 2020 Jkt 250001 an open pit lithium mine, processing operation, and continued exploration activities (the Project) on public lands in northern Humboldt County, Nevada. LNC has submitted two Plans of Operations (PoO), each of which includes an associated reclamation plan, to develop the Project and to provide BLM with a description of the proposed lithium mining, processing, and exploration operations. The PoOs include measures to be implemented to prevent unnecessary or undue degradation of public lands by operations authorized under the mining laws. LNC currently has two approved PoOs, one for exploration and one for a specialty clay mine, approved within the area proposed for the new lithium mine. There are 75 acres of exploration disturbance approved under LNCs existing exploration PoO, and 140 acres of existing disturbance approved under their clay mine PoO. The operations proposed under the two new PoOs would involve a project area of about 18,000 acres, with an ultimate disturbance footprint of approximately 5,700 acres. The proposed lithium mine PoO boundary overlaps the existing PoO boundaries. LNC proposes to develop the Project in two phases (Phase 1 and Phase 2) over the estimated 41-year mine life. Pending LNC receiving the required authorizations and permits for Phase 1 of the Project, pre-stripping would commence in early 2021 and construction in the first quarter of 2021, with mining production and ore processing estimated to commence in late 2022. LNC estimates that it would complete mining, processing and concurrent reclamation activities in 2061, after which reclamation, site closure activities, and post-closure monitoring would occur for a minimum of five years. The Project would provide employment to approximately 300 workers during the operational phase. The proposed activities and facilities associated with the Project include development of an open pit mine, construction and operation of lithium processing and production facilities, mine facilities to support mining operations, two waste rock storage facilities, a run-of-mine stockpile, a clay tailings filter stack, water supply facilities, two power transmission lines and substations, and various ancillary facilities. Pit dewatering is not expected to be required as part of the Project until 2055, and concurrent backfill of the open pit would occur after sufficient volume has been excavated to initiate direct placement of waste rock. PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Continued exploration would be conducted under both PoOs. The project would produce lithium carbonate, lithium hydroxide monohydrate, lithium sulfide, lithium metal, and solid-state lithium batteries. The Project also would include the construction of natural landforms and other design features to mitigate potential impacts to visual resources within the Project area. A Land Use Plan Amendment addressing visual resources would be included with the Project and analyzed in the EIS if visual resource issues cannot be mitigated during the exploration, construction, and operation of the Project to conform with the visual resource management class-2 designation in the current RMP, approved in 2015. The purpose of the public scoping process is to identify relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the process for developing the EIS. The BLM has identified some preliminary issues associated with the Project: (a) Dewatering during mining and the formation of a pit lake after completion of mining activities; (b) Potential impacts to streams occupied by Lahontan cutthroat trout, a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended; (c) Potential impacts to visual resources; (d) Potential impacts to wildlife habitat; and (e) Potential impacts to cultural resources eligible under the National Register of Historic Places. The BLM will use and coordinate the NEPA scoping process to help fulfill the public involvement process under the NHPA as provided in 42 CFR 800.2(d)(3). The information about historic and cultural resources within the area potentially affected by the proposed project will assist the BLM in identifying and evaluating impacts to such resources in the context of both NEPA and the NHPA. The BLM will consult with Native American tribes on a government-togovernment basis in accordance with Executive Order 13175 and other policies. Tribal concerns, including impacts on Indian trust assets and potential impacts to cultural resources, will be given due consideration. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with tribes and other stakeholders that may be interested in or affected by the proposed project that the BLM is evaluating, are invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be requested by the BLM to participate in the development of the EIS as a cooperating agency.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The applicant, LNC, proposes to construct, 
operate, reclaim, and eventually close an open pit lithium mine, 
processing operation, and continued exploration activities (the 
Project) on public lands in northern Humboldt County, Nevada.
    LNC has submitted two Plans of Operations (PoO), each of which 
includes an associated reclamation plan, to develop the Project and to 
provide BLM with a description of the proposed lithium mining, 
processing, and exploration operations. The PoOs include measures to be 
implemented to prevent unnecessary or undue degradation of public lands 
by operations authorized under the mining laws.
    LNC currently has two approved PoOs, one for exploration and one 
for a specialty clay mine, approved within the area proposed for the 
new lithium mine. There are 75 acres of exploration disturbance 
approved under LNCs existing exploration PoO, and 140 acres of existing 
disturbance approved under their clay mine PoO. The operations proposed 
under the two new PoOs would involve a project area of about 18,000 
acres, with an ultimate disturbance footprint of approximately 5,700 
acres. The proposed lithium mine PoO boundary overlaps the existing PoO 
boundaries.
    LNC proposes to develop the Project in two phases (Phase 1 and 
Phase 2) over the estimated 41-year mine life. Pending LNC receiving 
the required authorizations and permits for Phase 1 of the Project, 
pre-stripping would commence in early 2021 and construction in the 
first quarter of 2021, with mining production and ore processing 
estimated to commence in late 2022. LNC estimates that it would 
complete mining, processing and concurrent reclamation activities in 
2061, after which reclamation, site closure activities, and post-
closure monitoring would occur for a minimum of five years.
    The Project would provide employment to approximately 300 workers 
during the operational phase. The proposed activities and facilities 
associated with the Project include development of an open pit mine, 
construction and operation of lithium processing and production 
facilities, mine facilities to support mining operations, two waste 
rock storage facilities, a run-of-mine stockpile, a clay tailings 
filter stack, water supply facilities, two power transmission lines and

expected to be required as part of the Project until 2055, and 
concurrent backfill of the open pit would occur after sufficient volume 
has been excavated to initiate direct placement of waste rock. 
Continued exploration would be conducted under both PoOs. The project 
would produce lithium carbonate, lithium hydroxide monohydrate, lithium 
sulfide, lithium metal, and solid-state lithium batteries.
    The Project also would include the construction of natural 
landforms and other design features to mitigate potential impacts to 
visual resources within the Project area. A Land Use Plan Amendment 
addressing visual resources would be included with the Project and 
analyzed in the EIS if visual resource issues cannot be mitigated 
during the exploration, construction, and operation of the Project to 
conform with the visual resource management class-2 designation in the 
current RMP, approved in 2015.
    The purpose of the public scoping process is to identify relevant 
issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, 
including alternatives, and guide the process for developing the EIS. 
The BLM has identified some preliminary issues associated with the 
Project: (a) Dewatering during mining and the formation of a pit lake 
after completion of mining activities; (b) Potential impacts to streams 
occupied by Lahontan cutthroat trout, a threatened species under the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended; (c) Potential impacts to 
visual resources; (d) Potential impacts to wildlife habitat; and (e) 
Potential impacts to cultural resources eligible under the National 
Register of Historic Places.
    The BLM will use and coordinate the NEPA scoping process to help 
fulfill the public involvement process under the NHPA as provided in 42 
CFR 800.2(d)(3). The information about historic and cultural resources 
within the area potentially affected by the proposed project will 
assist the BLM in identifying and evaluating impacts to such resources 
in the context of both NEPA and the NHPA.
    The BLM will consult with Native American tribes on a government-
to-government basis in accordance with Executive Order 13175 and other 
policies. Tribal concerns, including impacts on Indian trust assets and 
potential impacts to cultural resources, will be given due 
consideration.
    Federal, State, and local agencies, along with tribes and other 
stakeholders that may be interested in or affected by the proposed 
project that the BLM is evaluating, are invited to participate in the 
scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be requested by the 
BLM to participate in the development of the EIS as a cooperating 
agency. Comments and materials we receive, as well as
