Green grasses grow over the reclaimed Landusky mining operation's August Pit, with the now-grass-covered Gold Bug Butte hillside towering in the background.

The Bureau of Land Management issued a Public Land Order today to protect more than 2,600 acres at the Zortman-Landusky Mine reclamation area from future mining activities. The BLM administers the site, located in Phillips County, Montana.

The 20-year mineral withdrawal of this reclamation area prevents new mining activities and disturbance of the public lands, and provides time to assess and monitor the effectiveness of on-going reclamation activities – https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2022/09/09/2022-19503/public-land-order-no-7913-withdrawal-of-public-land-for-the-zortman-lan...
