B and M Plan of Operations
The purpose of the proposed project is to provide approval of a Plan of Operations to explore for locatable minerals, per Federal mining regulations 36 CFR 228, subpart A. Three test pits would be excavated to test for gold and reclaimed.
Bald Mountain Repeater Site
The project proposes to establish a new repeater site at Bald Mountain within the Smoky Mountains Idaho Roadless Area to improve radio coverage to the Atlanta area. Radio equipment, shelter with antenna and prefab concrete pads would be installed.
Carlin Mineral Exploration Project
The proposal is to drill/blast a quartz vein and remove approximately 30-40 tons of mineral material to determine if enough gold is present to further develop the project. This is a locatable minerals project regulated under 36 CFR 228A.
High Valley Integrated Restoration Project
Manage forest to accelerate development of large, ponderosa pine to support wildlife habitat, increase resilience to un-natural disturbance, reduce hazardous fuels, improve watershed function, and provide wood products to support local economies.
Idaho Pride Plan of Operations
This project is for a proposed Plan of Operations for locatable minerals, as allowed by federal mining regulations (36 CFR 228A). The proposal is to dig 4 prospect pits next to Mores Creek and process with a highbanker and small trommel.
Keller Outfitter and Guide Special Use Permit
Issuance of a 10-yr special use permit to outfit and guide predator hunting for wolf, cougar and bear. Keller Outfitter and Guides have purchased a portion of Allred Adventures Outfitter and Guide area and a new special use permit is required.
Scriver Creek Integrated Restoration Project
This project is designed to modify stand conditions to improve wildlife habitat and increase resiliency to insects, disease and wildfire; as well as improve watershed conditions and reduce long-term sedimentation caused by existing roads.
South Fork Fish Weir SUP Project
Issue new 30-year special use permit to US Fish and Wildlife Service for the operation and maintenance of a fish weir and holding facility to replace existing SUP and construct additional pond in a disturbed area within the existing permit boundary.
Swanholm Repeater Site
The project proposes to establish a new repeater site at Swanholm Mountain within the Ten Mile/Black Warrior IRA to improve radio coverage on the Idaho City RD. Radio equipment, shelter with antenna and prefab concrete pads would be installed.
Table Mountain Outfitters Special Use Permit Renewal
Re-issue a new Special Use Permit to Table Mountain Outfitters for hunting outfitting and guide services on National Forest Lands for the period of 2015-2024. This is an existing operator and there are no changes to services or locations proposed.
Williams Creek Project
This project would use a combination of commercial and non-commercial thinning and fuel reduction activities to improve forest resiliency from insect and disease disturbance, while promoting large, early-seral tree species and wildlife habitat.
