Moly mine wins BLM approval
November 26, 2012

Federal land managers have approved the Mount Hope molybdenum mine, a major project in central Nevada, saying it will provide an average of 400 long-term jobs, the Associated Press reported.

U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials announced that a record of decision has been signed for the Mount Hope mine, about 25 miles northwest of Eureka.

The BLM says Eureka Moly LLC’s openpit molybdenum mine will disturb some 8,100 acres of public land and 260 acres of private land located within the 22,886-acre project area.

The project life of the mine includes 44 years of mining and ore processing, and 30 years of reclamation.

Eureka County commissioners issued a news release criticizing both the federal agency and the mining company for failing to resolve many issues concerning the mine’s potential environmental impact, including water consumption.
