Physical Description: .1 cubic ft.

Scope and Content Note

This small series contains administrative records relating to BCMC project and development schedules, drilling, and permits. This series also contains filled purchase orders and purchase order logs. Despite the name of the series, these records do not relate primarily to Engineering or Construction, but rather are general administrative records similar to those found in Series 1, 3, and 4.

Arrangement

This series is arranged by subject according to the Galactic file index system. Purchase orders are arranged chronologically.

Series 6: Environmental and Permitting, 1901-1993

Physical Description: 7.7 cubic ft.

Scope and Content Note

This very large series contains materials relating to the preparation of the Environmental Impact Report, general environmental and permit issues, and BCMC and Galactic's relationship with various federal, state, and local oversight agencies. Records with file index numbers beginning with 6.0 through 6.1.1.1 relate to more general environmental issues, regulations, permit strategies, and the BLM's Bishop Plan. Files beginning with 6.1.1.2 relate to the preparation of the Environmental Impact Report. Files beginning with 6.1.2 relate to other (non-BLM) federal agencies; files beginning with 6.2 relate to state-level agencies; and files beginning with 6.3 relate to local/county-level agencies and organizations, particularly Mono County.
A large portion of the records in this series concerns the preparation of the EIR. Files begging with 6.1.1.2.2 include copies of the drafts of the EIR as well as various reports and data collected by contractors beginning in 1988 for eventual EIR preparation. The EIR/EIS files include memos, correspondence, and reports, the Notice of Preparation for the EIR and letters of response, many drafts of BCMC reports to the EIR contractor, and copies of the draft administrative EIR and Draft EIR. Other files include the "baseline data" gathered by contractors on topics such as air, water, blasting/seismic, geochemistry, noise, history, oil, reclamation, socioeconomics, soil, traffic, vegetation, visual impact, and wildlife. There is also a file on "archeology" that relates to the contractors hired to review the cultural resource data for the EIR. These contractor files consist mainly of memos, reports, statistics, and correspondence.
Related files beginning with 6.1.1.2.3 concern the archeological and historical work done by Western Cultural Resource Management (WCRM) for the EIR. The Cultural Resource Management (CRM) portion of the EIR made up the most extensive (and expensive) portion of the EIR baseline data gathering and the results constituted the largest part of the EIR report. WCRM files include correspondence relating to research design, progress reports, schedules, invoices, memos, budgets, contracts, field manuals and reference guidelines for CRM. There are also a large number of reports from WCRM to BCMC dated 1989 through 1991, including annotated bibliographies, research design documents, and copies of the draft and final reports on the prehistory and history of project area. Another copy of the meeting minutes of the J.S. Cain Company, 1901 through 1985, is included in these files. There are also a number of field notes on historic and archeological sites. Files beginning with 6.1.1.2.3 also include many internal Galactic documents mainly created by Penny McPherson, the GSI employee who oversaw the CRM program, including memos regarding the selection of the CRM contractor, the budget, and the deteriorating relationship between BCMC and WCRM over time. This series also contains records relating to federal agencies such as the National Park Service, the Advisory Counsel on Historic Preservation and the Bureau of Land Management. Records include correspondence, copies of regulations, memos, and records relating to NPS's boundary survey, as well as copies of the BLM's Bishop Area Management Plan.
Also included are similar records relating to state agencies, including memos and correspondence between Galactic (and BCMC) and the California Department of Parks and Recreation. There are also materials from the "Save Bodie!" committee of the CSPRA, and copies of DPR's Bodie State Historic Park acquisition documents and other related documents from the California State Archives dating from the 1950s and 1960s.
Finally, this series also includes records relating to Mono County, the local governing agency for the project. Most of the records relate to the Mono County General Counsel, the Mono County Planning Department, and the Mono County Board of Supervisors. Records include correspondence and memos, copies of general plans, permits, receipts, copies of letters received by Mono County regarding the Bodie project, Directors Review applications and use permit applications. There are also a number of documents related to "MRTAC" a technical advisory committee that sought to create a "mineral policy" for Mono County's general plan. BCMC attempted to write this mineral policy for the county through MRTAC, which was comprised mainly of BCMC and GSI staff. There are also records (largely from 1989) of the Mono County Mining Committee, an organization created by GSI to promote mining as part of Mono County's general plan.

Series 11: Photographs, 1988-1990 and undated

Physical Description: 2.9 cubic ft.

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of three types of photographic materials: aerial prints, negative transparencies, and 35mm and Polaroid photographic prints. The aerial photographs were taken on October 18, 1988 by McLean-Harper aerial photography. They include almost 400 views of the project site taken at 1:10800 scale; over 360 are reproduced as 9 ¼ X 9 ¼ color prints. Another five oblique views are reproduced only as black and white 9 ¼ X 9 ¼ prints, along with black and white prints of some views found in the color print files. The prints are numbered, apparently by location (sector)-view (section) (e.g. 14-4 or 2-5). There are also nine negative transparencies of aerial views of the area at various scales created for BCMC by Carl's Blueprinting, likely for map creation. There are also over 900 photographic prints (35mm and Polaroid). Approximately 69 are miscellaneous photographic prints in loose form, including 44 3X5 (35mm) color prints of a "Bodie Old Timers" picnic, 21 Polaroid prints from a file labeled "Project Acquisition Documents" showing the project site, and four Polaroid prints of "Bodie Office Alternatives" showing various buildings in the Lee Vining and Bridgeport area. There are also three photo albums of Polaroid prints. The first two contain over 800 images of ore samples in storage boxes. These ore samples are presumably the same samples bought by DPR and loaned to UC Davis. The samples are numbered with a code corresponding to their drill hole; e.g. the letters in BGC-89-135 refer to a B "Bodie" hole, drilled by G "Galactic," with C referring to the type of hole ("Core"). The number "89" means it was drilled in 1989, and "135" is the overall hole number. The final album contains miscellaneous Polaroid prints of the project site area, probably taken by Steve Mehls of WCRM during the archeological survey.

Arrangement

This series is arranged by subject. Aerial photographs are arranged by location and view. Polaroid photographs of ore samples are arranged by drill hole number.

Series 12: Historical, 1984-1992 and undated

Physical Description: 1.6 cubic ft.

Scope and Content Note

This series includes both "historical" records given to Galactic from Homestake Mining Company and reference materials collected by BCMC. The "historical" materials include newspaper clippings on Mono County from the mid 1980s, Mono County guidebooks and pamphlets, some internal Homestake correspondence and memos up to 1986, use permits, short internal reports, and information on the "Bodie Prospect," including an estimated mineral inventory. There are also some Homestake correspondence and memos relating to the sale of the Bodie interests to Galactic. Historical materials also include Homestake's internal Draft Environmental Reconnaissance Report, including notes and maps, and collected information (mainly from BLM) on archeology, history, land use, soils, vegetation, wildlife, and population. There are also USGS reports on hydrochemistry, and other water code reference materials. The "historical" files also include a small number of Galactic memos and correspondence regarding the Bodie purchase, most of which is found in other series. The series also includes reference materials found among BCMC's files, including materials on mining, historic resource management, California environmental laws, and a draft EIR for another mining project in the area.
