Makaya, How did you make out visiting, I'd love to know?
My understanding is that a press release is not far away at all, but they will not release any forward looking releases anymore, and heck, I certainly don't blame them. Everything forward looking has been wrong time-wise, though eventually most of what they have said has ultimately occurred, but so far off that it's embarrassing.
The good part about that is that the next time we hear news, it should be stuff that has already occurred or is occurring.
The BLM has the following on their site under FAQs, it may be slightly outdated, but its stuff we already know: https://eplanning.blm.gov/epl-front-office/eplanning/planAndProjectSite.do?methodName=dispatchToPatternPage¤tPageId=55912
