What a mitigation plan covers is:
The following taken from the U.S. Department of Interior website : http://www.blm.gov/or/energy/uranium.php
In September 2011, a representative from Oregon Energy, L.L.C. (formally Uranium One), met with local citizens, and county and state officials, to discuss the possibility of opening a uranium oxide (“yellowcake”) mine in southern Malheur County in southeastern Oregon. Oregon Energy is interested in developing a 17-Claim parcel of land known as the Aurora Project through an open pit mining method. Besides the mine, there would be a mill for processing. The claim area occupies about 450 acres and is also referred to as the “New U” uranium claims.
On May 7, 2012, Oregon Energy LLC made a presentation to the BLM outlining its plans for development for the mine.
The Vale District has agreed to work with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on mitigation for the “New U” uranium claims, which are located in core sage grouse habitat. Although the lands encompassing the claims have been designated core, the area is frequented by rockhounds and hunters, and has a crisscrossing of off-highway vehicle (OHV) roads and other significant land disturbance from the defunct Bretz Mercury Mine, abandoned in the 1960s.
However, by the fall of 2012 the company said that it was putting its plans for the mine on hold until the uncertainty surrounding sage grouse issues was resolved.
Location information for the Aurora Project can be found on the “Non-Renewable Energy Projects of Oregon” map at this website: http://www.blm.gov/or/energy.
What you do not realize is how insidious the taking of land is for the sale of Uranium. The sage grouse issue is to make people believe that all the land taking is to save something for the future generation. The Federal government has pushed through the sale which in turn pushes the purchase of property by any means. The BLM (federal organization) will harass property owners. They will lie to property owners, telling them they will be fined if they do anything on their own land that threatens a lizard, an owl habitat, a fish habitat, a sage grouse.
The Federal agencies will even go so far as to put an innocent law-abiding citizen in Federal prison to accomplish their goal. Especially if that citizen is holding up a project.
Agenda 21/Agenda 2030 at work thru our past secretary of state. I posted about Uranium One https://losingamericanland.com/2016/11/06/proof-of-uranium-one.
I followed the money and the reasons why land was being taken in Harney County Oregon. This is why Dwight Hammond (age 74) is sitting in a federal prison. Initially the sentence for Dwight (Father) was 3 months in prison and Steven (son) was 12 months in federal prison. Both were also stipulated to pay $400,000 to the BLM. The judge said “that sentence is too short”. Sometime in June 2014, Rhonda Karges, Field Manager for the BLM, and her husband Chad Karges, Refuge Manager for the Malheur Wildlife Refuge (which surrounds the Hammond ranch), along with attorney Frank Papagni exemplified further vindictive behavior by filing an appeal with the 9th District Federal Court seeking Dwight’s and Steven’s return to federal prison for the entire 5 years. The Hammonds serve their original sentences and to date they have paid $200,000 to the BLM, and the remainder $200,000 must be paid before the end of year (2015). If the Hammonds cannot pay the fines to the BLM, they will be forced to sell the ranch to the BLM or face further prosecution. (Coercion to sell their ranch , I think so).See the history of Dwight and Steven Hammond: http://www.prcforum.com/forum/157-political-discussions/69473-history-behind-hammond-ranch-blm.html
Incidentally the Hammond Ranch is surrounded by the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.
The out cry resulted in a take over of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the murder of a man who had not even a parking ticket on his record. Yes murder is a harsh way to put the killing of a man by the FBI.
The reasons why this happened goes deeper than the take-over of the wildlife refuge.
The Uranium One deal had already been done and the project to start mining the Uranium was being held up by one rancher who would not sell his land to the federal government. Making it look like the reasons for doing all the land buying was the save the grouse campaign. When in fact it was a Uranium deal negotiated by the Federal government. Go to the mitigation plan and the environmental impact statement to see how much land is needed.
The UN mandate to take the land for ecology purposes were also a front for acquiring the land in order to get at one of the bigger uranium deposits in the US. Incidentally there are large deposits of gold also.
I discovered this during the Burns Oregon standoff January 2016. The mitigation of such a project usually takes large parcels of land to satisfy the UN mandates on ecology and wildlife. A mitigation plan does not actually take into account human lives that will be affected and they (the feds, the UN, government officials involved) do anything to force a sale of needed property. The facade of a payment looks good to the populous but the price is never a fair market value of the land. As a matter of fact all kinds of very interesting things happen to a persons land that is targeted by the BLM. Sudden devastating flooding, enormous fires, limited access, new regulations and even threats of jail time if you don’t obey an implied regulation and or policy. If a biologist has identified a possible, endangered species on your land, you will be fined and or arrested for endangering the said species.
The devastation of flooding to a rancher is “Not only can you not grow your winter feed but it kills all of your perennial grasses” This can mean sure financial hardship.
A simplest solution has been sought — a canal to drain the water from the closed basin into the Snake River — But when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers determined the project’s benefit-to-cost ratio was too low http://www.disasternews.net/news/article.php?articleid=742 Theres the Army Corps of engineers in their infinite wisdom rearing their ugly head. Lets see where else have we heard them doing untoward things to people —mmmm oh yes the flooding in New Orleans after Katrina, They conveniently did not fix the dyke—- That’s right! They had the money but just didn’t fix it!https://wordpress.com/post/losingamericanland.com/383
The following link is an excellent run down on the fires in Harney county and how the BLM just kept the fire burning in order to burn out the ranchers and devastate them. Please take some time to read it: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/22484-oregon-standoff-blm-s-burn-em-out-legacy-the-untold-backstory
During the 1970’s the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), took a different approach to get the ranchers to sell. Ranchers were told that, “grazing was detrimental to wildlife and must be reduced”. 32 out of 53 permits were revoked and many ranchers were forced sell. Grazing fees were raised significantly for those that did not sell. Refuge personnel(BLM) took over the irrigation system claiming it as their own.
Human life on a ranch is a hard life but it is a life that people choose.
If a person looks at what is going on within a 50 mile radius of the Hammond Ranch, the devastation that took place is appalling. Ranches were being bought up by the federal government. Call it BLM or some other agency working to complete a mitigation plan for the preparation to start a mining or multiple mining projects.
Ultimately the injustice of the whole project has hit the core of many people and they took action by taking over the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, in order to make the American people aware of the unlawful methods of the Federal Government and their hired mercenaries.
When connecting the dots the purchase of Uranium by the Russian company killed Lavoy Finicum and put an innocent hard-working rancher in Federal Prison.
Other examples of BLM buying land……

I must add that all “International Obligations” will trump any and all need to reserve, preserve or otherwise save land. Now that said there is an agenda at the UN that will force preservation of land, but that of course will be considered an “International obligation”. When any of the Federal alphabet soups are told to do something to meet the “International Obligation” all bets are off. The alphabet soup bunch will carry out any and all untoward actions to secure whatever obligation is required. Coercion, demonizing, destruction of life, destruction of property and imprisonment, to accomplish their goal. The alphabet soup bunch sees this as thier duty to accomplish the “International Obligation by any means”. Until the American people see this as truth and stand up to this it will continue to happen. In this that is why we see the continual abuse of the Bundy family, the Hammond family, Lavoy Finicum and many others that have never been put in the spot light, as these people have.
I just love all the media when they have some guest on to talk about an issue! The pat cliché saying is “Let’ have a conversation????” Or “We need to have the conversation!” Or some other form referring to the conversation. REALLY What the heck do you think is going on when you are invited onto a broadcast to talk or debate about an issue? Do you think, you people who spew this cliche statement, aren’t having THE CONVERSATION?
It seems to me that those that kneeled during the national anthem started the conversation and people quit talking and took action. Which these so-called national conversations don’t accomplish. Most people who want these national conversations never want action to take place because of these CONVERSATIONS.
Simply put, you people who want to have the “national conversation”, couldn’t come up with a solution for any issue that needs action if you were paid a billion dollars or even to save your life.
TALK! TALK!TALK!TALK! TALK!TALK!TALK!TALK!TALK!TALK!TALK!TALK!TALK!TALK!
This has been happening for 30 years or more. Conversations have been going on about so many issues and nothing ever gets done.All media likes talking about the issue but no action is taken. Can’t people get off their arse and do something about what they don’t like happening. Get involved, then report on what progress you are making. The rich and wealthy needs to put thier money where thier mouth is.
A must if you want to know what is happening to the sea life in the Pacific Ocean.

Not being against the pipeline I did have some, reservations no pun intended, about the route of the pipeline and the possible, I repeat the possible encroachment on reservation land. I think the aggressionfrom the feds upon the protesters was to much. So I kept my eye on what was happening.
The protesters were protesting an environmental possibility. The possibility of a potential pollution of water. The protesters were all up in arms that the pipeline might, I repeat, might pollute the water.
Now that the pipeline is going forth, the protesters have left the sight of a makeshift camp, of a population in the thousands. People came from all over to support the protest of this would be polluting project.
I must now express my disgust and disappointment in the protesters. Just like other long-term protests that have taken place, the aftermath is a garbage dump.
The environmental impact on the water supply is disgusting. The human waste is appalling. The tents and tarps and food waste, sleeping bags, blankets, foam pads, plastic totes, containers, styrofoam coolers, cardboard boxes of supplies for living. Large burn barrels, piles of firewood for warming tepees and cooking fires. The unused cases of canned goods and water. The list goes on….
Then as if environmental impact wasn’t bad enough as the protesters leave they set fire to this garbage.
The burning of some of this makeshift camp is a much larger impact than a pipeline that carries oil. The Alaska pipeline (Alyeska pipeline)has been in use for 40 years and has been running pretty smooth. It put 70,000 people to work.http://www.alyeska-pipe.com/TAPS/HistoryDesignConstruction
You make the call but my take is that this was and example of serious hypocrisy!!??
I do beleive the indigenous people were used for someone elses agenda.
