On April 29, 2021 the Bureau of Land Management filed notice
the Federal Registry that NASA has SEGREGATED 23,000 acres of land in
Railroad Valley from the public domain in order that they conduct
satellite studies for the next 22 years, subject to valid existing
rights. 3PL has valid existing rights, so our concerns are
the details, which are not yet known. However, this
stops acitivity from other explorers that may wish to help a green

following summary from 3PL:
of NASA Land Withdrawal in Railroad Valley, NV
Below is a map of the area requested to be withdrawn. We
offer 41 alternative locations for NASA in this document:

Most importantly, Railroad Valley is unique because of the
and concentrated lithium exploration effort being conducted there, by
several companies. This activity is shown on the chart
We need not surmise that NASA is intentionally
mining activities - they admit this! See their published
presented at the American Geophysical Union conference in 2018, titled "THE
ONGOING BATTLE FOR RAILROAD VALLEY".
Note: 3PL takes exception to the accusation that we have evaporation
ponds in Railroad Valley. This is not true. NASA is behaving
unethically by making these false asssertions.
Our opinion is that taxpayer money is being wasted on a Government
Agency that has an agenda to stop mining activity. The fact
it is lithium mining they are trying to stop is a sad irony. NASA studies carbon
dioxide, but 3PL eliminates carbon dioxide!

And finally, note that the NASA study in Railroad Valley,
"OCO" and "GOSAT" satellite calibrations. These are acronyms for
"Orbiting Carbon Observatory" and "Greenhouse Gases Observing
Satellite". In other words, the critical NASA studies are for
greenhouse gas studies.
