BLM releases Environmental Assessment for proposed gold exploration in the Railroad Mining District south of Carlin


The Bureau of Land Management, Elko District, Tuscarora Field Office released an Environment Assessment (EA) for Gold Standard Ventures Corporation’s (GSV) plan of operations for the Railroad Mining District. The EA is available for public review until Oct. 11 when a decision will be issued.

The EA is available on the Elko District website at www.blm.gov/rv5c.

The Railroad Exploration project is located approximately 25 miles south of Carlin on public and private lands. The proposed exploration operation would consist of constructing access roads and drilling sites, drilling holes with a truck-mounted drill rig and, upon completion of exploration operations, plugging and abandoning the drill holes and reclaiming the drill pads and constructed access roads.

This exploration project would provide continued employment for current GSV employees as well as additional contractors used during exploration activities. The Proposed Action would also explore the resource to determine if additional exploration or mining could take place on the property providing future mining jobs.

For more information on this proposed project, contact the project lead, Alan Mariluch, at (775) 753-0200 or by email at[email protected].
