Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks seeks public review of its proposal to acquire the 50% mineral rights (“rights”) privately held under 14,149 acres of FWP’s 27,616 acres in Spotted Dog Wildlife Management Area (SDWMA), acquired in 2010 and located northeast of Deer Lodge in Powell County. This potential rights purchase would help ensure no mineral exploration and/or extraction activities would occur under the majority of FWP’s SDWMA in the future, thus meeting many of the objectives for which the property was originally purchased. A draft environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared for this proposal.
