BLM Seeks Comments on Gold Mine Expansion Project

Hog Ranch Minerals is looking to expand its operations near Alturas in search of gold. Over the next ten years, the mining company plans to construct permanent and temporary access roads, install drill pads and exploration holes, install a water well and create a staging area just 60 miles south of Cedarville. Before work can begin on the gold exploration site at the former Hog Ranch Mine, as part of the NEPA process, the BLM must ask for your input on the proposed project’s impacts.

Your comments can be submitted up to February 23rd and mailed to the BLM Applegate field office.
