ELY, Nev. (AP) – The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on issues concerning public land being eyed for potential oil and gas leasing in eastern Nevada. The agency’s Ely District is analyzing 94 parcels of public land covering 140,389 acres to identify potential impacts in an environmental assessment.
The deadline for submitting written comments to the BLM’s Caliente field office is May 22. The BLM Caliente Field Station is located at 1400 S. Front Street, Caliente, Nev. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The phone number is (775) 726-8100 (but only written comments will enter the official record).
Deep Green Resistance highly recommends that community members participate in the public process — while at the same time understanding that this system was designed to facilitate resource extraction, not to stop it. We want to stop destructive activity, not regulate it or make it more “friendly.” To learn more, visit the DGR strategy website.
