EPM Mining Ventures Inc. (TSXV:EPK,OTCQX:EPKMF) reported progress on the Environmental Impact Statement for Sevier Lake Playa Sulphate of Potash Project. As of the second week of January 2014, the Environmental Impact Statement Notice of Intent was transferred from the BLM Utah State office to the BLM Washington D.C. office.
As quoted in the press release:
The BLM’s Fillmore Field Office (“FFO”) started the process to post the Notice of Intent (“NOI”) to prepare an EIS in the Federal Register after the selection of the third-party contractor, which occurred in August 2013. The NOI for the EIS must be posted in the Federal Register before the public scoping process can begin. As of the second week of January 2014, the EIS NOI was transferred from the BLM Utah State office to the BLM Washington D.C. office.
EPM Mining CEO, Lance D’Ambrosio, said:
We are delighted to have the NOI progress to the BLM’s federal office. We look forward to its posting in the Federal Register so the public comment process can begin. EPM is very fortunate to have such a great permitting team whose diligent and methodical approach has kept our project moving from one milestone to the next.
