Abstract : Environmental impacts expected to result from renewed withdrawal of the Groom Mountain Range are assessed. The no-action alternative allowing return of the area to public land status and the alternative of renewing a smaller withdrawal area are considered. Impacts of renewed withdrawal would result from loss of public and private access for hunting, recreation, mining and other purposes. It is concluded that no overriding environmental factors are evident that would render renewed withdrawal unacceptable.
