EA-1921: Finding of No Significant Impact

Silver Peak Area Geothermal Exploration Project, Esmeralda County, NV

Based on the evaluations in the final EA and subject to the mitigations imposed by BLM and DOE, DOE has determined that no significant impact on the human environment would occur as a result of DOE's proposed action to provide a $4.47 million federal grant and Rockwood's proposed project to explore for a geothermal resource that could support the production of electricity that would serve the lithium processing plant owned by Rockwood. Therefore, preparation of an EIS is not required, and DOE is issuing this FONSI.
