KINGMAN — The Bureau of Land Management Kingman Field Office has completed an environmental assessment and is seeking public comment on the proposed Antler Operations Inc. Exploration Project.
The proposed exploration drilling project is located approximately nine miles east of the intersection of Interstate 40 and Boriana Mine Road near the town of Yucca in Mohave County. Antler has submitted an exploration plan to the Kingman Field Office to conduct copper mineral exploration drilling activities within an approximately 512-acre drilling target area.
The proposed exploration would include up to 19 acres of surface disturbance over the 512-acre project area. Activities would include the construction of up to 50 drill pads, temporary access roads, improving and maintaining existing access roads, drilling and drilling support activities. Each drill pad would measure approximately 72 feet by 90 feet.
Up to 3.6 miles of linear disturbance is anticipated for construction of new access roads. Concurrent reclamation would occur where practicable and reclamation of the remaining disturbed areas would occur at the end of the drilling program once each road or drill pad is no longer needed.
The environmental assessment is located on the BLM’s National NEPA Register project webpage. The public comment period is for 30 days, beginning on July 11, 2022, and ending August 10, 2022.
Electronic comments may be submitted via the National NEPA Register. Written comments may also be submitted to BLM Kingman Field Office, 2755 Mission Blvd, Kingman, AZ 86401. If you would like to receive a hard copy of the environmental assessment, contact the Kingman Field Office at 928-718-3700.
