SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document provides notice that the BLM EYDO, Ely, NV, intends to prepare an EIS for the Robinson Mine Plan of Operations Amendment, as well as a Proposed Ely District RMP Amendment. It also initiates the public scoping process, and seeks public input on preliminary issues regarding the proposed project and RMP amendment. The Robinson Mine is an 8,887.6-acre copper mining operation adjacent to Ruth, Nevada and seven miles west of Ely, Nevada via U.S. Route 50. Project area boundaries are within Township 16 North (T16N), Range 61 East (R61E), Sections 1, 2, 11 through 14, 23–26, 35, and 36; T16N, R62E, Sections 2 through 24, and 28 through 31; T16N, R63E, Sections 7, 8, and 17 through 20; and Township 17 North, Range 62 East, Sections 20, 21, 28, 29, and 32 through 35, Mount Diablo Baseline and Meridian. The BLM has received a proposal from KGHM—Robinson Nevada Mining Company to amend the Robinson Project Plan of Operations to extend the mine life to 2028 through authorization of the following actions: resume mining in the Liberty Pit, construct the new King Waste Rock Dump south of the Liberty and Ruth Pits, and expand storage capacity at the Giroux Wash Tailings Storage Facility. The EIS will analyze an alternative to resume waste rock placement on the North Tripp Waste Rock Dump, requiring North Tripp Waste Rock Dump expansion. The proposed activities would result in a total increase of approximately 1,227 acres of surface disturbance within the Project Area Boundary for a new end of mine life total surface disturbance of 10,115 acres. The proposed increase would comprise 246 acres of new disturbance on private land controlled by KGHM Robinson and 981 acres of new disturbance located on public lands administered by the BLM. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:32 May 27, 2020 Jkt 250001 This EIS will also analyze a proposed amendment to the Ely District RMP for approximately 10,865 acres of BLM lands within the Plan of Operations boundary to be managed as Visual Resource Management (VRM) Class IV instead of the current VRM Class II and VRM Class III. This would provide for visual resource management that is consistent with current and future proposed mining operations. The Robinson Mine currently operates four open pits including the Aultman Pit, Liberty Pit, Tripp/Veteran Pit and Ruth West and Ruth East Pits. The approximate total surface disturbance of the open pits is 2,061 acres. Ruth Pit is the only authorized pit that occurs on BLM-administered lands, with a total authorized surface disturbance of 36.6 acres on public land. Twelve Waste Rock Dumps and two ore stockpiles are authorized at Robinson Mine, with a total combined surface disturbance of approximately 3,055 acres, 721 acres on public lands. Tailings produced during milling operations are placed in the authorized Giroux Wash Tailings Storage Facility, approximately 1973 acres, 70.5 acres of which occur on public lands. Other facilities that support Robinson Mine operations include mill and flotation circuits, gold heap leach and process facilities, evaporations cells and ponds, pumps and pipelines, power substations and distribution lines, a landfill, and a number of other buildings and facilities, yards, and equipment. Robinson Mine has an ongoing exploration drilling program to provide information for the geologic model, better define the ore body, and provide metallurgical samples. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will guide the planning process, including the range of alternatives and analysis included in the EIS. You may submit comments in writing to the BLM as shown in the ADDRESSES section above. To be most helpful, your comments should be submitted by the close of the 30-day scoping period. The BLM will use its fulfillment of the NEPA public participation requirements to assist the agency in satisfying the public involvement requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (16 U.S.C. 470(f)) pursuant to 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). The information about historic and cultural resources within the area potentially affected by the proposed action will assist the BLM in identifying and evaluating impacts to such resources in the context of both NEPA and Section 106 of the NHPA. PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32047 The BLM will consult with Indian 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 action 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 environmental analysis as a cooperating agency. The public is encouraged to help identify any issues, including impact concerns or the range of alternatives that should be analyzed, so that they that may be addressed in the EIS. The BLM will work collaboratively with all interested parties to identify the issues.

[FR Doc. 2020–11370 Filed 5–27–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–33–P INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION [Investigation Nos. 701–TA–621 and 731– TA–1447 (Final)] Ceramic Tile from China; Determinations On the basis of the record 1 developed in the subject investigations, the United States International Trade Commission (‘‘Commission’’) determines, pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 (‘‘the Act’’), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of ceramic tile from China, provided for in heading 6907 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) to be sold in the United States at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’), and to be subsidized by the government of China.2 3™ Background The Commission instituted these investigations effective April 10, 2019, following receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and Commerce by the Coalition for Fair Trade in Ceramic Tile. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of ceramic tile from China were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and sold at LTFV within the meaning of 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the Commission’s investigations and of a public hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register on December 2, 2019 (84 FR 66010). In light of the restrictions on access to the Commission building due to the COVID–19 pandemic, the Commission conducted its hearing (originally scheduled for April 2, 2020) through a series of written questions, submissions of written testimony, written responses to questions, posthearing briefs, and closing arguments/rebuttal remarks via videoconference . All persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to participate. The Commission made these determinations pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)). It completed and filed its determinations in these investigations on May 21, 2020. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 5053 (May 2020), entitled Ceramic Tile from China: Investigation Nos. 701–TA–621 and 731–TA–1447 (Final). By order of the Commission. Issued: May 21, 2020. Lisa Barton, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc. 2020–11395 Filed 5–27–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7020–02–P 1 The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)). 2 The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce’s affirmative critical circumstances determination are not likely to undermine seriously the remedial effect of the antidumping duty order on Ceramic Tile from China. 3 Chairman David S. Johanson dissenting and Commissioner Randolph J. Stayin not participating. PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 E:\FR\FM\28MYN1.SGM 28MYN1
