    Tuesday, September 14, 2021 1:00 AM
    District Court Judge Miranda Du again denied a petition to delay preliminary excavations at the planned Thacker Pass lithium mine on Friday, a decision that means work at the mine site can continue but one that could also set up a conflict with demonstrators camped in the area.

  • Nevada researchers studying herbicides in hopes of reducing wildfire fuels
    Tuesday, September 14, 2021 1:00 AM
    With wildfires raging in the West, two University of Nevada, Reno researchers are doing further studies on two herbicides known to reduce cheatgrass, a fine fuel that ignites readily. The researchers are looking at the herbicides’ effects on more desired plant species that often grow with cheatgrass, including native bunchgrasses and forbs, or wildflowers, in order to give land managers the information they need to weigh the costs and benefits of using these herbicides, Plateau and Rejuvra. This work will hopefully give managers a better tool to reduce flammable cheatgrass while allowing desired forbs and bunchgrasses to increase.

  • Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, Burns Paiute Tribe ask federal judge to halt activity near Thacker Pass mine
    Wednesday, September 8, 2021 1:00 AM
    Allowing digging near the proposed Thacker Pass lithium mine would cause irreparable harm to Indigenous communities in the Great Basin, attorneys for the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, Burns Paiute Tribe and the People of Red Mountain told a federal District Court judge on Friday. 
    The tribal governments and members of the Fort McDermitt Paiute and Shoshone Tribe asked federal District Court Judge Miranda Du to issue a preliminary injunction. Such a ruling could halt ground disturbance as the court weighs the merits of the case. At issue is whether federal regulators improperly fast-tracked an environmental review for the closely-watched lithium mine.
