Study of proposed 20-year mining ban adjacent to Yellowstone NP delayed by high-level reviews

Forest officials sent postcards and posted notice online early this month saying they would soon release a study proposing a 20-year mining claim ban on 30,000 acres of public land north of Yellowstone National Park.

The notice, posted online March 6, said an environmental assessment of the mineral withdrawal would be released “in the coming days,” which would trigger a public comment period. However, three weeks later, the document has not been released.
