The proponent proposes to conduct minerals exploration activities to acquire detailed geologic data within the Henry Clay mineral claims group to determine the extent of the mineral resources. The Henry Clay Exploration Project area is located about 7 miles north of Featherville, Idaho in Elmore County. The project area encompasses approximately 200 acres of National Forest System (NFS) lands. The public is invited to submit scoping comments on the Henry Clay Exploration Minerals Project. These comments will help us refine the proposal, and identify preliminary issues, interested and affected persons, and possible alternatives. A notice regarding the project and invitation to comment is anticipated to be published in the Idaho Statesman (newspaper of record) on July 16, 2013. To be most helpful, please submit your scoping comments by August 15, 2013, and make your comments as specific as possible.
The Henry Clay mineral claims are located between Featherville and Rocky Bar, Idaho.
