The Nevada Eagle Mine acquisition proposal has received strong support during the public comment period that extends through Wednesday, June 19, 2013. The Nevada Eagle Mining claims are located within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and could be acquired using Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act (SNPLMA) funds in Round 14.
The acquisition will help protect and preserve the local environmentally sensitive ecosystem in a myriad of ways. The many supporters of the project include Center for Biological Diversity, Nevada Conservative League, Outside Las Vegas Foundation, Protectors of Tule Springs, Scenic Nevada, Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Nevada Conservation League, the Nevada Field Office of National Parks Conservation Association and the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
