The Ghost of Treasure Hill
by Betty Orr

On Treasure Hill
A ghostly wind
Rattles slat and sage.
And every silvered
Sash and door,
Is sanded smooth with age.

                         Who traveled here?
                         Who wept at night?
                         Who bore the dreadful breeze?
                         Who burned for ore?
                         Who drilled at night?
                         Who prayed on trembling knees?

On Treasure Hill
The flowers stay small
Nestled near the stones.
And scattered on a
Windswept spot,
Rock mounds now cover bones.

                         Who watched from here?
                         Who mourned a child?
                         Who swayed against the wind?
                         Who counted days,
                         And then, the hours,
                         The stage that rattled in?

On Treasure Hill
I sifted soil.
I found an earring part.
I found a dish, a
Broken toy.
I guess a broken heart.
BLM Seeks Public Comment on
Proposed Amendment to Bald
Mountain Regional Exploration Plan
of Operations

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
Ely District, Egan Field Office is asking
the public to review and provide comment
on an amendment to the Bald Mountain
Regional Exploration Plan of Operations.  
The 30-day public comment period
concludes Monday, Sept. 15, 2014.

Under the amendment, Barrick Gold US,
Inc., would utilize 9.69 acres of public
land adjacent to the Bald Mountain Mine,
located about 50 miles northwest of Ely in
White Pine County, Nev., for exploration
related activities, which would increase
ground disturbance under the regional
exploration plan to 169 acres.  Twenty-
three sites would be drilled and 19,990
feet of road would be created.  Barrick
expects some minor deviations from the
plan in actual site locations and road
alignments in order to minimize surface
disturbance and to meet subsurface
exploration needs.  Disturbance
footprints for roads would be 16-24 feet
wide, depending on the slope.  If
approved, drilling would begin in October
2014.  Reclamation of the disturbed
areas would immediately follow active
operations, except in areas where
additional development is expected.

Interested individuals should address all
written comments to the BLM Ely District
Office, HC 33 Box 33500, Ely, NV 89301,
Attn: Miles Kreidler or fax them to Kreidler
at (775) 289-1910.  You may also submit
comments to Kreidler at mkreidler@blm.
gov.  Before including your address,
phone number, e-mail address, or other
personal identifying information in your
comment, you should be aware that your
entire comment – including your personal
identifying information – may be made
publicly available at any time.  While you
can ask us in your comment to withhold
your personal identifying information from
public review, we cannot guarantee that
we will be able to do so.

complete Plan of Operations, contact
