Colowyo Coal Mine, Collom Permit Expansion Area Mining Plan Modification and Federal Coal Lease Modification
In accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality regulations and the Department of the Interior procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 42 U.S.C. 43332(2) (C), the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE), Western Region and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Little Snake Field Office (LSFO) have prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the environmental effects of the proposed mining plan modification for the Collom Permit Expansion Area at the Colowyo Coal Mine and for a decision by the BLM LSFO on a related coal lease modification application. OSMRE is responsible for reviewing plans to conduct coal mining and reclamation operations on lands containing leased Federal coal. Pursuant to 30 CFR 746, OSMRE must prepare and submit to the Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management (ASLM) a decision document recommending approval, conditional approval or disapproval of the proposed mining plan modification. ASLM approval of a mining plan modification would authorize mining activities to produce up to 5.1 million tons per year of coal from Colowyo federal coal leases, COC-0123475 01 and COC-68590 and disturb up to a maximum total of 2,636 acres of private, state and federal lands. BLM is responsible for reviewing and making decisions on federal coal lease modification applications. Pursuant to 43 CFR Subpart 3432 federal coal lessees have the opportunity to apply for BLM approval of a lease modification to add less than 960 acres of unleased lands to an existing lease. The proposed lease modification would add 27.84 acres of unleased federal land within the existing, state approved mine permit boundary to federal coal lease COC 0123475 01. The proposed lease modification was not an original element of the Project and EA when public outreach was held in October and November 2013 but was later incorporated as a necessary action under both Alternative A and Alternative B analyzed in the EA. The lease modification would provide Colowyo with use of those lands for development of the Collom Permit Expansion Area. Those lands would only be utilized for surface activities and no federal coal resources would be mined there. The Colowyo Coal Mine is located approximately 26 miles southwest of Craig, Colorado and 22 miles north-northeast of Meeker, Colorado, west of Colorado Highway 13/789 in southwest Moffat and northern Rio Blanco Counties, Colorado. OSMRE and BLM invite the public to comment on the EA and has also made separate agency unsigned Finding of No Significant Impacts (FONSI) available for public review. The EA and unsigned FONSIs will be available for review as of January 19, 2016. All comments must be post marked by February 18, 2016 for consideration. The EA and unsigned FONSIs can be reviewed online at the following OSMRE and BLM websites:

Trapper Mining Inc.’s Trapper Mine Federal Coal Leases C-07519 and C-079641
Mining Plan Modification
The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI),Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE), Western Region, has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) to analyze environmental impacts of a federal mining plan approval for current and future mining within Federal Coal Lease Nos. C-07519 and C-079641 held by Trapper Mining Inc. as part of the Trapper Mine. The EA covers the time period beginning July 1, 2015, and continuing through the planned life of mine for the portion of the two federal coal lease areas lying within the approved Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA) Permit Area (the Project). As required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the EA discloses the potential for direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts to the environment from the Project. The proposed Project is occurring on two federal coal leases administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and located within the eastern portion of the Trapper Mine’s approved SMCRA Permit Area. The portion of the federal coal leases within the SMCRA Permit Area covers a total of approximately 2,423 acres of federal mineral estate. As of July 1, 2015, approximately 19.1 million tons of recoverable federal coal remains within the Project Area. Preparation of the EA has been completed pursuant to the Court-approved Joint Proposed Remedy, as approved by the United States District Court for the District of Colorado on September 14, 2015, in the case entitled WildEarth Guardians v. U.S. Office of Surface Mining et al., Case 1:13-cv-00518-RBJ (D. Colo. 2015). As part of the Court-approved remedy, OSMRE agreed to conduct a new NEPA analysis for Trapper’s current and future mining activities within Federal Coal Lease Nos. C-07519 and C-079641. OSMRE is responsible for reviewing plans to conduct coal mining and reclamation operations on lands containing leased federal coal. Pursuant to 30 CFR 746.13, OSMRE is responsible for making a recommendation to the DOI Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management (ASLM) regarding a decision on proposed mining plan modifications. OSMRE must prepare and submit a mining plan decision document (MPDD) to the DOI ASLM recommending approval, disapproval, or approval with condition(s) of the proposed mining plan modification. The ASLM is responsible for making the decision to approve, disapprove, or approve with condition(s) the document within the MPDD, as required under the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920. OSMRE invites the public to comment on the EA and the unsigned Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The EA and unsigned FONSI will be available for review beginning January 25, 2016. All comments must be received or postmarked by February 19, 2016 to be considered. The EA and unsigned FONSI will be available for review online at: www.wrcc.osmre.gov/initiatives/trappermine.shtm
