In order to allow more time for public participation, US Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management is extending the comment period on a proposed lithium exploration plan from Big Sandy Inc.

The plan would allow for 145 drill sites and a bulk sample near the town of Wikieup in Mohave County. Public comments will be extended another 30 days, from 11 May through 10 June 2021.

This exploration drilling project is proposed to disturb 26 acres of public land, located within several sections east of Wikieup. Diamond core drill holes are expected to reach target depths of approximately 300 ft. The exploration drill sites would be reclaimed following the proposed activities.
