Title: Granite area mining projects draft environmental impact statement
Author: North Fork John Day Ranger District (Or.)
Abstract: Proposes to approve 16 plans of operation for mining claims located within the Granite watershed. Key issues include the effects continued mining would have on the water quality of Granite and Clear Creeks, listed on Oregon's 303(d) list of impaired waters, and their tributaries, as well as the threat to bulltrout, redband trout and anadromous fish species in poor to fair habitat conditions. Alternative actions call for minimizing adverse environmental impacts, gating Forest Service Road 1035-012, and decommissioning two other roads totaling 2.25 miles.
