Lassen County lands donated to public ownership; Fed's BLM will manage for habitat

(BLM-California news release, 7/22/09)--http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/info/newsroom/2009/july/NC0971_haydenhills_donatedlands.html

Lassen Gold Mining, a subsidiary of Kinross Gold, has transferred into public ownership 756 acres near Hayden Hill in northwest Lassen County. The area will be managed by the Bureau of Land Management’s Alturas Field Office as wildlife habitat. “The donated sagebrush grasslands are home to sage-grouse and mule deer and include over 18 acres of constructed wetlands that mitigate the impacts of mining,” said BLM Alturas Field Manager Tim Burke.
