Deadline Scoping Comments on Newark Exploration Project (mining)

April 10, 2023 @ 11:30 pm - April 11, 2023 @ 12:00 am

Newark Exploration Project

The comment deadline has been extended.While the district will consider scoping comments at any time, they will be most helpful if submitted by April 10, 2023.

This is a mine exploratory drilling project on Forest Service (FS) land in  Custer County. Suggested deadline for the FS receipt of scoping letters  was March 2nd, 2023 (the deadline was extended to April 10th,). The scoping letter and the attached maps, the accepted Plan of Operations, and other supporting documents can be found on the project website:

https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=63527 .

Scoping letter deadlines are a little flexible, but the FS wants comment documents received via e-mail/fax before midnight of the deadline day or postmarked that day  (when they are actually serious about comment deadlines).

Clean Water Alliance has an alert on this issue on it’s web page.
