  • It will extend employment of a combined 170 employees for an additional five years.
  • Significant investments have been made based on approval of the State Mining Permit, including construction of an adjoining Power Plant costing over $1 billion.
  • The State Mining Permit incorporating this federally-issued lease area was obtained in 2013.
  • Recent Court Orders require a new federal permitting hurdle: a required NEPA analysis prior to OSMRE approval.

  • is duplicative
  • adds delays and cost
  • and puts significant investments at risk!
