LEGAL NOTICE The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has completed a comprehensive five-year bond review of the Essex Quarry operated by Schellinger Construction under Operating Permit No. 00045. The quarry is located near Essex approximately 28 miles southeast of West Glacier in Flathead County, Montana. The site is in Sections 33 and 34, Township 30 North, Range 16 West. The mine site was most recently inspected on July 10, 2018. The current bond is set at $153,568. DEQ has determined that the current bond does not represent the present costs of reclaiming the site and proposes to increase the bond to $300,894. The increase in the bond amount is due to the additional need for compost, as well as increased labor and equipment costs. A copy of the bond calculations that form the basis for the proposed bond determination and information on the proposed bond determination can be obtained by contacting the Department of Environmental Quality, Hard Rock Mining Bureau, PO Box 200901, 1520 E Sixth Ave, Helena, MT 59620-0901, or by calling Herb Rolfes at (406) 444-3841 or hrolfes@mt.gov. Comments must be received by August 28, 2018. A final decision on the bond determination will be issued within 30 days of the close of the public comment period. In addition to the proposed bond increase, DEQ is proposing to release bond in the amount of $6,475 due to completed reclamation. DEQ has determined that Schellinger Construction has successfully conducted weed control on ten acres of the site, allowing the establishment of vegetation required under its operating permit. DEQ may not release or decrease a bond until the public has been provided an opportunity for hearing and a hearing has been held if requested. Requests for a hearing must be received by August 28, 2018 and be directed to the contact set forth above. If both the proposed bond increase and proposed bond release become final, the reclamation bond for Operating Permit No. 00045 will be $294,419. Published In The Western News August 3, 2018 MNAXLP

SCOPING NOTICE PROPOSED PROJECT ON STATE TRUST LANDS IN FLOWER CREEK AREA July 3, 2018 The Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC), Libby Unit, is soliciting comments and concerns on requested uses of State Lands in the Flower Creek area. Lincoln County is proposing to develop and construct a non-motorized trail system and its amenities in portions of sections 16 and 20 T30N R31W. This project would consist of approximately 9.1 miles of new single track trail construction, 2.5 miles of existing roads would also be used for sections of trail, and a trailhead. The trail would be built to International Mountain Bicycling Association standards. Amenities would include a 40 foot by 80 foot parking lot, vaulted toilet and a kiosk and signage at the trailhead and along trails. DNRC is considering the issuance of a Land Use License (LUL) which would allow these elements to be placed on the landscape. All improvements would be non-perpetual in nature and could be moved off the landscape and rehabbed if requested. These parcels would continue to be primarily managed for timber resources. This notice has been sent to you because you a neighboring land owner or we believe you may have interest in the proposal area. In accordance with Montana Environmental Policy Act, public concerns about the project and potential environmental impacts will be considered and analyzed prior to making the decision of whether or not to grant the LUL. You have until August 9, 2018 to submit your concerns or comments relating to this project by mail or e-mailing written comments to Jeremy Rank, DNRC Libby Unit, 177 State Lands Office Road, Libby, MT 59923 or e-mail at: jrank@mt.gov.
